#1: the area of the point

(visited by Peter Scharfenberg)

11-Aug-2004 -- A first attempt to visit the point was made on July 13th but the visit was not completed, as the rainy weather promised photos of mountains in deep hangigng clouds. On August 11th we had a warm day with sunshine - just the right at the end of a 5 week tour to finish with. (We call the last hiking activity "abwandern".)

According to the 1:100000 map "Namsskogan" we had to follow a private path/road along the river "store Bjorhusdalelva" from the village Bjorhusdal to a farm (-house) Bertilsaetran (not discovered). Here we assumed to have to find our own way for the rest of the 5 km to the grid point N65/E13 which is in the mountain Froningsfjellet, particularly Litlfjellet (512 m). However, there was a track to "Remna" through the usually high and dense plants, caused perhaps by an all terrain vehicle (ATV). We followed this trace for 3 km, then after crossing the river, which did not pose any problem after the long dry period now, we had to find our own path through a forest and later in open area. A young elk ignored our activities, but maybe he had visited the point of desire. A small lake, diameter less than 20 m, failed to match the confluence point (200 m), thus we did not have to swim to complete the mission. After having made some photos and built a small "monument" of stones the friendly message of Frank, Magnus, and Stian Dahlslett (dated July 30th) was discovered and deposited in the stone figure.
