#1: The Confluence from 15 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz, Elionora, Liang Zhou and Faye Chen)

10-Feb-2016 -- This is the third out of seven reports on confluence visits during a car trip across the USA. The story starts at 39°N 77°W and continues from 35°N 82°W.

In the morning we started driving from Greenville, South Carolina. Simply staying on I-85 we reached the urban area of Atlanta shortly before noon. This confluence is only 2 miles short of I-85 in a fine neighbourhood of Lawrenceville with direct road access. Its visit is a perfect “10-minute confluence” that would not delay any other planning of the day.

After navigation to coordinates had brought us to 1470 Ashwood Way, we were just 13 m off the precise location. Before stepping on the front lawn where the confluence is located, I rang the bell. A friendly young man gave me instantaneous permission to my request – he knew about the special coordinates of his house.

Again this was a fun visit with nice sunny weather and a quiet atmosphere in this rich neighbourhood. We continued our drive to downtown Atlanta, where we visited The World of Coca-Cola.
