13-May-2001 -- Three Confluences in one day - well that was my aim for May 13. It ended up as two new confluences and one distant Attempt. As the song goes - "two out of three ain't bad". The first visit before lunch involved a two-and-a-half-hour drive from home to S34 E150, but the road we headed down ran out a few kilometres distant from the Confluence. The second visit after lunch to S34 E148 was successful, thanks to an unmapped road easement that led to within 70 metres. The last visit to S34 E149 ended up being after sunset and maybe just as well since it was 400 metres onto farmland.
The first Confluence attempt on May 13, 2001 was to S34 E150 which appeared to be near a road, although it involved a two-and-a-half-hour drive from home. Since we were still several kilometres from the Confluence when we got to the end of the road, walking to the Confluence was out of the question - it was still many hours of driving to the other confluences. So we took some photos in the direction of the confluence and decided to try another day when we didn't plan to fit in another two Confluences the same day!
