(visited by Jack Frickey)

25-May-2008 -- I was on a Memorial Day Weekend GPSing marathon (15 geodashing dashpoints and this confluence). One of my goals for the weekend was to visit my first confluence in New Hampshire. I should thank Joseph Kerski and Charlie Worrick for their reports which were very helpful in locating the best approach to reach 43N 72W. The key, of course, is locating the place to leave Depot Road. I’ll add my bit of information and provide the GPS coordinates of that location (N42 59.770 W71 59.485). The trail leading west from there is actually a fairly decent 4WD road leading to the lake west of 43N72W. As I was hiking in, I met a pickup making its way back to Depot Road. I hiked on the road until I reached approximately 72W where the road turned sharply left to the south and I turned north. The remainder of the trek was across downed trees and medium to large boulders generally downhill to the confluence. As long as I was moving the mosquitoes and other flying annoyances didn’t bother me too much. The 10 or 15 minutes spent at the confluence trying to get all zeros on my GPSr, however, was a different story. I quickly took photos to the south, west toward the marsh about 30 yards downhill, uphill to the north, and to the east. At that point I retraced my steps back to the road and out to Depot Road.
