30-Mar-2001 -- This confluence was like taking candy from a baby. Street Atlas showed us that we would take the state highway in to about 200 feet of the confluence, and the topo showed a house near the site. As we came around the corner from the west, we saw a dirt road that looked like it would help us greatly. Taking the Audi 4000 just off of the highway, we knew she would not be able to clear the ruts of the dirt road.
We found the only the stone foundation and chimney left of the house marked on the topo. The bus we found however was an additional treat for that was not marked on the topo, and we fould some good scenic pictures to take of the surrounding area. The confluence was found to be just 80 feet past an open unposted gate right off of the dirt road. We had had intended to mark all of our found confluences with the red markers, but this is the first that we remembered to mark. All in all this was by far the easiest confluence yet on this trek. There is some great country up in these parts of Arkansas. We had to stop at two scenic overlooks to get some shots of this great country side. Day two, three down four to go. Next target, the flat side of the state, N36 W91.
