(visited by Volker Mornhinweg and Martin Zimmermann)

06-Sep-2004 -- It was an fine day in late summer, the temperature being an agreeable 20 degrees Celsius. A few clouds were in the sky and there was a slight breeze. We were enjoying a nice afternoon in Store Mosse National Park, having an easy time of it. The mosqitoes were determined to have a nice time, too, and had themselves a nice bloody picknick. Ouch. Heading back to our cottage in Källsjö we decided to grasp the opportunity and to also have a look at 57°N 13°E.

Our trustee GPS receiver led us via Hylte and Torup to the road to Drängsered. The junction was easy to find and led about 500 m into the wood to a clearing, where we parked our car at the wayside, approximately 100 m away from the confluence (see picture #8). From there, we went on foot into the forest and reached our destination at 17:36 CEST.

Unfortunately, the thick underwood impeded to get all zeroes. But one factor made up for this: at least, here there were no gnats.
