#1: Dense woods covers confluence

(visited by Rodger Stamm and Michelle Stamm)

10-Jun-2000 -- On Saturday, June 10, 2000, Michelle Stamm, and her father Rodger, set out to take a drive through Western Ohio’s beautiful farm land and attack confluence 41N/83W. We had been planning on this for some time now and have studied the maps and acquired a Garmin 12 GPS for the adveture. We approached the confluence from the north and found we could not quite make it that way. So, we went around and approached it from the east and could not get as close as we did from the north. The south and west apporaches were out of the question.

So, we went back and hiked through a farmers plowed fields again to the closest point we could get. The temperature was in the upper 80's if not in the 90's and it was a humid day. We were wearing shorts and short sleeves, and were advised by a farmer not to go into the woods this time of year the way we were dressed, due to the ticks. Also, we would have to actually blaze a trail through the thickets to get to the confluence. The farmer wasn't about to let that happen. We were almost 100 meters off the confluence and the best we could do was stand exactly on the 83 degree west longitude and take a picture into the woods where the confluence actually is.
