#1: The confluence point lies on this suburban road, close to this storm drain

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

10-May-2011 -- To date, I have visited several confluence points that lie in a subdivision, and several that lie close to a paved road. This point, however, is (I think) only the second point that I've visited that lies directly on a paved road. (The other such point is [45,-123] near Salem, Oregon - which lies on a freeway on-ramp.) Unlike that other busy road, this confluence point lies on a quiet suburban street, which makes it possible to get 'all zeros'.

Despite this, I'm not 100% sure that the confluence point lies on the road; it's possible (because of GPS error) that it lies on the sidewalk instead.

As I was wandering around the road, trying to get 'all zeros', a friendly neighbor came up to me to chat about what I was doing. It turns out that he, too, has a GPS receiver, which he sometimes uses to visit 'geocaches'. However, he was unaware that he had an even more significant point just feet from his home! (I told him about the "confluence.org" website - so we may have a new confluence hunter soon.)
