25-Aug-2004 -- Wow! A chance to update an American confluence point for the first time since the turn of the century, not to mention the opportunity to be the first to post ten zeroes at a CP in one of the coterminous United States! Plus a chance to tangle with barbed wire, bug bites, and poison ivy. What a great way to start the day…

Coming from the west on Interstate Highway 40, I exited onto US-64 at Conway, Arkansas, to avoid the morning rush hour traffic in Little Rock. However, a stoplight and school buses created the kind of formidable bottleneck at Vilonia of which Arkansas’s state capital could be proud.

At the intersection with U.S. Highway 67/167 I turned to the southwest. Approaching the CP just a few miles later I pulled over to the edge of a very wide shoulder. Less than 100 meters from my destination, I headed into the tree line, scaled a short wire fence, and walked out into knee- to waist-high vegetation on the pipeline right-of-way. From the pictures, other than seasonal foliage, conditions appear unchanged since December 1999 [Photos 1-4].

I was back in my car and on my way in less time than it’s taken to prepare this narrative. Which left plenty of daylight to visit Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site, one of the newer units administered by the National Park Service, a federal bureau established 88 years ago today…
