(visited by Florian Schindler)

03-Jun-2017 -- I came from 58°N 12°E and was guided by my car navigation system to the town of Ed, where I checked in in a cabin at the local camp site. I still had enough time until nightfall and drove from Ed on road 164, left it, headed to the village of Hårbol and finally ended up a bit west of it on an unpaved forest road. This road was in good condition for my sedan car and I followed it until a way forks. This way leads to a clearing and I parked my car there at a distance of 180 metres to the point.

From here I followed an overgrown way, crossed a creek and reached the Point a few metres west of the creek. Zeroing out was bit difficult, because a fallen tree with lots of branches lay at the exact spot. Nevertheless I got a good reading and returned to my car. Again a very easy-to-reach Confluence Point! I drove back to the camping site and reached it 1:10 hours after my departure.

For the next day a visit of 60°N 12°E in Norway was on my schedule.
