(visited by Ulf Jacobsen and Ulrike Schramm)

13-Apr-2001 -- It was our first time to visit a confluence. This spot was situated near by a bigger road so it wasn't so difficult to get as close as 700 m by car.

We prepared ourselves: GPS, walkie-talkie, sweets (very important!), warm clothing - there was a bit of snow around.

To get closer to the spot we followed the GPS partly on small forest roads, partly right through the woods. To find the way back we saved some positions on the way.

But we weren't the first to visit the spot: A moose had obviously been there before us! It left some "brown things" behind. But it hasn't submitted the confluence. (Maybe it forgot to take photos. ;-)

After taking our photos we walked back - frustrating enough we found a very easy way all the time on small roads...
