#1: West - with Betty, Dave & Carole

(visited by Dave Osborne, Carole Osborne, Barrie Atkinson and Betty Atkinson)

06-Jun-2001 -- We visited this confluence and 51N 97W in early June, just before Carole and I were moving to a new job in Halifax, NS. Because of the move, I did not get the write-ups done until after we had settled in our new home - I see that someone else has visited this site, and submitted his write-up.

Our friends, Barrie and Betty Atkinson, who were providing both the GPS and digital camera, drove over from the west side of Winnipeg, to our home in the south-east part of the city. We then proceeded north on Lagimodiere Boulevard (provincial highway 59), the main route to Lake Winnipeg's eastern beaches, turning off at the village of Birds Hill. Provincial road 202 took us north through the village, until we turned off onto Rebeck Road.

We found 50N 97W in the back yard of 3910 Rebeck Road. The owner, who was up on his roof when we arrived, didn't seem to fully understand what we wanted, but he agreed to let us walk through his back yard. The confluence was not as far back as we had assumed – we found it just a couple of feet west of where he had his truck parked. We took our pictures before I remembered that I had brought a stake to mark the spot (the owner had said he would show the spot to his wife later).

On leaving, we drove a short distance back to 3878 Rebeck Road, where Carole's uncle Frank Holgate lives; he was working on his tractor when we arrived, and was very surprised to see us.
