#1: Curt on point

(visited by Curt Christiansen and Ryan Kapp)

01-Apr-2001 -- After lunch we headed west on Minnesota 27 to Little Falls and on to Long Prairie. We took a short side trip in Little Falls to see the home where Charles Lindbergh, Jr. spent his childhood summers. Out of Long Prairie we went NW on Todd County Rd 38 and then south and west on gravel roads to within ½ mile of the point. We had some trouble getting a good GPS read along this road, even a few trees seemed to block out the signal. We finally settled on a farmhouse driveway heading south. After a brief discussion with the landowner (and showing him the permission letter), Leroy came out to his yard with us. Ryan wandered around the yard finding the point while I talked to Leroy. Leroy was very nice but declined to be photographed for the website. He showed us his ice fishing sled. A small contraption that you tow out onto the frozen lake and then pop up. It has two seats in it and allows one to fish in relative comfort, out of the wind. He said he and his Dad enjoy going out fishing with it. That weekend was probably the last of the year to tow it behind a vehicle but you could still tow it by hand. Ryan had some difficulty pinpointing the site and since it was his first time operating the GPS he didn't realize the shifting accuracy. We finally decided it was in or near Leroy's shed. After a few more photos it was off to find 46N96W.
