(visited by Donald Staal and Monique Van der Hulst)

15-Aug-2001 -- An hour and a half after visiting the North 42, West 6 confluence, we visited its neighbour. This confluence is situated in a rural area that is not yet discovered by mass tourism. The landscape is spectacularly empty, at least in the eyes of inhabitants of a densely populated area such as The Netherlands.

To reach the spot, we left the motorway and drove on a rural road for about ten kilometres. We passed two sleepy (not to say deserted) villages and parked our car next to the road. According to our map, the confluence was practically on the road, which was rather accurate. We only had to walk into a recently mown field for maybe two hundred metres to reach the spot. This must be one of the easiest confluence visits ever: no obstacles whatsoever, sunny weather, no insects or snakes and we could keep our car in sight all the time.
