08-Aug-2007 --

This would be the fourth 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.

We passed multiple toll booths on our way through the Chicago area. The rain was really threatening. When we stopped to get some gas, a tornado warning went off, then the rain really started to came down. We waited for the heavy stuff to pass and then drove around until we found a way into the residential area. It was blocked off from the main thoroughfares that surrounded it. Once we found a road leading in, we were in a neighborhood of nice well-kept middle class homes. We made our way to Brantwood Avenue and stopped between the houses at 70 and 74 on the north side of the road. Someone in house 74 with a dog came to their front door to take a look and didn’t seem to mind our short visit.

I found all zeroes on the north side of the street on the grass between the road and sidewalk to the west of #74’s driveway. Future visitors can start directly north of the lamp post on the south side of the road and directly east of the red fire hydrant.

Picture #1 looks west and shows the red fire hydrant. Picture #2 looks north. Picture #3 looks east. Picture #4 looks south. Picture #5 shows my GPS position.

Another great confluence adventure! Onward to 42N 89W!
