11-Mar-2007 -- Sharlene and I had attended a weekend square dance festival in Burlington, VT, and decided to drive the 30 or so miles north to visit the confluence at 45N 73W. After a quick stop at a nearby geodashing dashpoint, we made our way to Gore Road (VT 207) and north to 45N. The confluence is in an open field about 250 feet east of the road and just north of a group of farmish buildings with a sign by the road saying “Kid’s Culinary Academy of Vermont.” There were “Posted” signs on the fence surrounding the snow covered field. I high-stepped along the fence at the north end of the field to within 200 feet of the confluence. With about a foot of snow on the ground and me in my tennis shoes, I decided to honor the posted signs and take my requisite pictures from that point. Although a gloomy winter day, we enjoyed driving through the rural Vermont countryside. We took a few extra minutes to drive the couple miles further north to cross over the Canadian border so we could say we had been to Quebec. The Canadian Customs Officer even volunteered to take our picture by the big “Quebec” sign greeting those entering there.
