08-Sep-2001 -- My wife and I left late Saturday morning to visit our first confluence and reached N37 W100 at 2:15 PM. We had origionally planned on approaching the site from the east but the road on my map was more of a hiking trail. Wanting a closer position to start our hike we drove north into Kansas 2.5 miles then back southwest to a road that ran east/west along the Oklahoma Kansas border.
A half mile to the east on this road was a gate that we parked near. A pleasant hike down this winding road led past an oil company facility and a storage building, then passed within about 1,000 feet of the confluence. When we were directly west of the spot we headed for it across a field of brush.
The confluence was in the middle of an empty piece of land that didn't seem to be used for anything. We saw oil company equipment and facilities but no pumps. The Oklahoma/Kansas state border is about 2,000 feet north. Route 283 is about 1.3 miles east. A nice drive, a pleasant hike and a successful attempt at locating our first degree confluence. It was still early enough that we decided to go for another later in the day. We took a few pictures and left.
