03-Feb-2001 -- We decided to visit the confluence N38 W92 since it was one of the closest to our home base of Columbia/Fulton Missouri, and the confluence didn't look too far off of a road. As we were approaching the area, we began to second guess our goal due to the many "KILL" painted trees within one mile of the confluence. An example of the sign is in picture #3. Luckily, when we rounded the bend on the road near the confluence, the signs were no longer on the property and a large cow pasture emerged before our eyes. To be safe, we decided to go up the driveway of the nearest farmhouse to check with the landowner. Here, we were met by several billy goats, dogs and geese. We also met Linda, the land owner. We explained what we were doing and asked if she owned the land, which she did. We invited her to accompany us to the point. She was glad to learn that her property contained a geographically significant point. We walked across the pasture past several cows (see picture #4) and quickly found the confluence near the tree line. The confluence rests about 100 feet north of a small creek, and about 200 feet south of the nearest road, and 1 foot from the nearest cow pie. Picture #1 shows (l-r) Linda, Jon, Jody, and Sheila the GPS dog at the confluence. Picture #5 shows Jaime, Jon and Jody and Sheila. This visit was the second for Jon and Sheila, and the first for Jody and Jaime, and Linda too for that matter. After visiting with Linda for a while, we headed for home.
