02-Sep-2000 -- "S**t Jumping Everywhere"
After passing the swampy terrain and driving down two gravel
roads, hilly fields were all we saw. 511 feet south of our
'parking spot' we hiked through one of many bean fields of
Southern Illinois. The breeding ground for numerous flying
insect species encouraged us to make our visit short, but
The open field was a perfect spot to appreciate the removal
of SA, which allowed us to get a consistent reading of the
exact latitude and longitude coordinates.
You'll find this confluence just west of West City, IL, 5 miles
from Interstate 57, exit 71.
