#1: East from N48 W80

(visited by John D. Carhart, Badge Darling and Jimmy Malnerich)

15-Mar-2001 -- Our First Confluence. The Ides of March: N48 W80 was visited and documented. This confluence is in Canada, in northern Ontario about 500 miles north of Toronto near a little town called Swastika. By using Garmin Enhanced Canada Maps we were able to drive to within 45 meters of the confluence using a gravel road shown on the Garmin map. After parking the truck in the snowbank and discussing the best approach for the last 45m we snowshoed and skied through 1-2m snow and arrived at N48 W80. We had 3 GPS units and they all read the required zeroes near the spot we decreed the confluence. An aspen stake duly noting the auspicious occasion was stuck into the frozen ground at the confluence. Pictures were taken of the confluence and the three navigators, Leader Badge Darling, Technical Advisor John Carhart and Bearer/Trail Slasher Jimmy Malnerich.
