26-Mar-2006 -- The Great Adventure – Stage Ten

- A proposed trip to Mankato, Minnesota to work with three groups named Kids Against Hunger, with Outreach Africa, and Life Tracks which are non profit groups that help disadvantaged groups around the world, sparked my interest in seeing if I could hit a bunch of confluences while on the trip.

After checking GoogleEarth it looked very possible with one minor problem, most would be latitude changes. In this area the distance between latitude change confluences is about 69 miles.

The total round trip was accomplished in 5 days and a total of 11 confluences. Two of the days had 5 confluences visited on each of the days. The trip included 34N 97W, 35N 97W, 36N 97W, 37N 97W, 38N 97W, 44N 94N, 42N 93W, 42N 94W, 41N 94W, 41N 95W, AND 40N 95W.

Stage Ten:

Again fairly easy access to this one. Glad that it is not growing season. Walking out to the middle of an empty field is much easier than trying to weave through the crops.

The weather is still cool but it was dry so walking in the field was easy. Grabbed the photos with verification of the location and then headed back to the tuck for a trip further South.

Great Adventure Stage Ten complete. Now on to 40N 95W
