#1: Corn everywhere!

(visited by Rob Ekl and Donna Perysian)

02-Sep-2000 -- "Ready to Pick"

4.8 miles west of Interstate 57, near Irwin, IL is the location of this confluence. It's about 30 feet south of County Road 8000S, in a corn field. Easy to find, this was a great way to start visiting confluences over the holiday weekend.

The pictures aren't very dynamic, because corn fields looking from one direction look a lot like corn fields from any other direction.

Standing on the road, we had 9 satellites with good signal strength, so inside the corn field, we still had a decent EPE ("accuracy" on the eMap).
