12-Nov-2005 -- When I very first started Geocaching I became aware of the confluence project and set my sights on this one. It has taken me over 3 years to make it out here even though it was only a few miles from my home. It always looked like it would be a nasty one. Well it was everything I expected. About a third of a mile of nice road or trail. A mile of tall grass with about an inch of water, and a mile of MUD with an inch of water over it. I think I took a little better path than Jean and Chris did but not a lot better. I guess I wasn't in the best mood for this kind of hike. When I got to the conflunce location all I found was a hole in the mud. When the water came up I guess the Geocache floated away. I took some pics and a video, then signed a piece of paper, stuffed it into a film can, dropped it in the hole in the mud, then started the 2.6 mile hike back to the van.
Thanks for a memorable Geocache and perhaps my only Confluence. Next time I think I'll climb a mountain.
See you on the trail.
Coordinator's Note: This confluence is classified as "incomplete" because it does not meet the minimum photo requirements for the project.
