24-Jul-2000 -- I stumbled upon a reference to this site while reading
Jessamyn.com and thought it was a neat idea.
Several months later I ended up purchasing a Garmin Emap.
Checking this site I saw that there was an open Confluence within
20 miles of our summer vacation spot in Rangeley Maine.
I checked the confluence location with Street Atlas 7 and found
that there were logging roads to within a quarter to a half mile of the
lakeshore and decided it was an absolutely do-able trek.
The actual confluence is under water; 'Lucky' our yellow lab
got the closest to the actual spot.
The kids still refer to the outing with pronounced rolling of the
eyes as "Dad's GPS hike."
