05-Jan-2003 -- After spending the night in Fort Stockton, I set out in the morning for the confluence which was about 16 km away. Driving down TX 18 I quickly left Fort Stockton behind (it's not a big town) and shortly got to within 6 km of the point. Fortunately, a road called Gomez Road headed west from TX 18 almost directly toward the confluence. Driving down this road took me past the Gomez Natural Gas Plant and to about 2 1/4 km south of my target. Gomez Road turned south at this point and looked to be of no further help. Backtracking, I tried going down various gravel roads that went north, but each of these ended in a gate that I couldn't pass. I decided to try one more gravel road near the plant. This one proved to be better as it led me to within 1.6 km (i.e. about a mile) south. With no fence in the way it was a straightforward walk to the confluence. I took my usual north (#1), east (#2), south (#3), west (#4) pictures. As you can see, this area is flat, brush country. Picture #5 is of the Gomez Plant off in the distance.
Picture #6 is of my GPS receiver (it's a little hard to read). After walking back to my car it was off to try for the confluence directly north of this one: 32N 103W.
