13-Nov-2021 -- En route from Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) westward to Salina, Kansas, we got off I-70 at exit 290 and made our way to Sage Road north over I-70, parking almost exactly at 39°N at 4:10pm. No fences nor crops, I walked maybe 300 feet east-southeast, zeroed out, took the pics, and was back to the vehicle within 5 minutes - my shortest confluence visit ever (the rest of the family was cranky and ready to be at the hotel). It was mostly cloudy with a setting sun peeking through and a temperature of 55°F.
As we were about to leave, a pickup truck I had seen at the farmhouse to the south came to investigate our parked car, asking if we had broken down. I explained that no, it was just a poopy diaper. It wasn't a lie. He said "that sucks" and sped off, his teenage son in the passenger seat not once looking up from his smartphone. We changed our daughter's diaper and hit the road again, cutting west then south toward Chapman and back onto I-70 west at exit 286, arriving on the beautiful main drag of Salina at exactly 5:00 pm, sundown, and checking in to one of the nicest hotels we've ever stayed at, the new Homewood Suites downtown (seriously - Conrad Hilton and Joanna Gaines would be proud).
Another day over the dam.
