14-Mar-2002 -- This confluence was just off of I-5 near the Kettleman City
exit. In the small town take the A paved road that goes
down the street and back over the freeway. Just over the
freeway a gate with a no tresspassing sign was there but
the gate was open and a paved road went beyond this point.
A man in a pickup came by from the opposite side of the
gate and asked what we were doing and we told him. He was
a retired oil company worker out inspecting the oil fields.
He said go ahead as the road is on public land. Anyway
someone had broken the locks. We left the car and walked
to the end of the paved road about ¾ mile and the confluence
was just up a ridge from there. It was in a abondened oil field
just across the freeway from the little city of Kettleman City .
