27-May-2007 -- This was the second of three confluences on the second day of a Memorial Day Weekend GPS marathon. 42N 72W is about 50 yards west of Norwich Worcester Turnpike (CT-169) just north of Woodstock, CT. We parked at the side of the road and walked up the steep driveway to the small newish gray house with green shutters (photo #1 facing north). I stepped to the front door and knocked. When the man answered, he knew immediately what I wanted. He had spoken with the previous visitor (Charlie Womick) less than three months before. He said, “You’re welcome to take pictures of my driveway.” We thanked him and proceeded to do just that. We registered all zeros (photo #5) a few feet in front of his garage door. Photo #2 looking east shows the top of the driveway that goes steeply down to CT-169 after the left turn. Photo #3 to the west and #4 to the south show the woods surrounding the property.
