My wife and I were in the Redwood Falls, Minnesota area visiting a long lost friend. After breakfast I headed out on a hunt for this DC, a GeoDash Point, and a GeoVexilla (see: www.gpsgames.org).
This DC is in a soybean field east of the farmstead buildings. My first approach was to drive east on a farm road on the south side of the field. To score from this side, would have required walking over 120 m through the bean field. Therefore, I pulled into the driveway to the farmstead and got to 93 meters near a manufactured home. A horse trailer was hooked to a pickup truck near the north end of this home. I drove back out the driveway and stopped to take the photos from the gravel road.
Coordinator's Note: This visit is classified incomplete because it does not meet the photo requirements of the project (photos taken more than 100m from actual confluence point)
