(visited by Marshall Clow and David Kaplan)

28-Nov-2009 -- After visiting 35°N 119°W and 118°W, we arrived in Barstow about 12:30 in the afternoon. We headed out Fort Irwin Road to bag our third confluence of the day.

There is a BLM sign on the corner of Ft. Irwin Road and Fossil Bed Road, as well as a street sign. The directions in the previous visits worked great. We drove up Fossil Bed Rd, turned on to the power-line service road, and parked at 35° 0' 6.9N 117° 0' 5.2W and walked away from the road at a right angle about 2/10ths of a mile.

While performing the "confluence dance" to get all zeros, we came across the geocache mentioned by previous visitors.

Three confluences in a single day - and it wasn't even 2 PM yet! We decided to visit 35°N 115°W in Goffs next.
