01-Jan-2004 -- A few of us happened to be in Chicago for the day after a conference in Urbana, Illinois. We noticed while driving into the city, that a confluence point lied somewhere in a Chicago suburb. The point most likely had previous visitors but we decided to go there anyway. The point was easily found on some residential street infront of a house. We started taking pictures of the point just as the owners of the house came out to leave. They were obviously a bit disturbed at our presence because they wouldn't leave while we were still there. They just sat in their car and gave us wierd looks. We decided to pretend to walk back to our car. It worked! As soon as we started walking away, they left. They turned a corner and we ran back and finished taking pictures.

Difficulty: 1 (you can drive there)

Enjoyment: 2 (weird neighbors, far away from home, most people we have been to a CP with)
