(visited by Matt Goff)

29-Jan-2000 - It was a beautiful sunny day and I figured that it was as good a time as any to go visit the confluence point nearest to me. I headed out with my laptop (for the maps it has) and my GPS. I attempted to take what looked to be the shortest route, but unfortunately it had quite a bit of snow on it. After managing to get my pickup unstuck from snow with the help of a shovel, some pieces of wood, and finally tire chains (it was a good thing I did not have those on in the first place because I probably would have driven even further into the snow and gotten really stuck), I went back and encountered no further trouble on the better travelled roads.

I was able to drive to about .75 miles from the confluence point. After a bit of a hike through patches of trees and mostly snow covered fields, I made it to the confluence point on the side of a hill in the middle of a field.

I have a few more pictures and a somewhat more detailed description of the trip on my webpage.
