07-Aug-2014 -- Shared my experience searching a confluence point with my family turned out in a hunt. This was their first experience doing that.

The confluence search were planned for the late afternoon. During that day we stayed at Moens Klint, some 40km east of here. This is an extraordinary place to stay. We highly recommend this area, rent a cabin or take a tent to stay there a bit longer - it is worth it!

Returning home we stopped short before the motorway E47. Parking is quite easy here. Even muggers are not interested in you. The last meters we were running. The kids were looking for a mark somewhere - but nothing to see. As a motivation I gave them the GPS device. They were trying to find zero ground. Hard to manage that. After some while we got closer than 1 digit. Snapshot. They were surprised to achieve the goal so quickly. Geocaching is much harder they replied.

Typical Denmark landscape here - wide and green, some agriculture, some wind wheels.

I'm sure this will not be our last confluence hunt!
