#1: General area in front of confluence

(visited by Shawn Fleming)

07-Aug-2007 --

This would be the second of five confluences on a vacation trip to Twinsburg, Ohio for our first ever visit to the annual Twins Days Festival where our daughters would get to meet thousands of other twins.

This confluence is available for rent.

We stopped at 288 15th Street. A female resident came out to see what we were up to. Her friendly dog followed me around back (with her permission) where I easily obtained all zeroes in the parking lot next to a car. I wish I had brought my Trimble GeoXT to reduce the uncertainty and variability between where other visitors had found their instantaneous zero readings!

Picture #1 shows the general area in front of the confluence house and with a resident reading Joseph Kerski’s narrative. Picture #2 looks north. Picture #3 looks east. Picture #4 looks south and shows the back side of the house for rent. Picture #5 looks west. Picture #6 shows my GPS location.

We spent the entire afternoon captivated by the science of Bodies The Exhibition

The next day we had hours of fun exploring at COSI the Columbus Center of Science and Industry.

Another great confluence adventure! Onward to 40N 84W!
