  45°N 93°W (visit #2)  

#1: looking toward the confluence

(visited by Tom Arneson, Sudjai Arneson and Kim Johnson)

05-Jul-2003 -- During my visit to my native state, Minnesota, I engaged in a lot of GPS activity. Three DashPoint hunts (www.geodashing.org) and walks to 12 kilometer intersections on the UTM grid. On our last day there, a good friend, Kim Johnson took us to a Vietnamese resturant for lunch. After luch I aked the ladies if they minded going on a short ride to a Degree Confluence. Of course I knew this was a easy drive by from the previous report.

We found 45N 93W in the same corner lot in the city of North St. Paul, as Scott Armitage did in 2000. The only change was the trees are taller and the US Post Office truck was parked while the letter carrier made his/her rounds.

Take Exit 55 off of I-694. Go west on SR 5/SR 212/34th St. N for 1.3 miles until the road comes to a T. Turn right onto SR 120/Geneva Ave. N, and go 0.1 miles. Take the next left, Holloway Ave., and go 0.73 miles to the intersection with Lakewood Dr. to the south and Polaris Place to the north. You may now go 234 feet north on Polaris Place, and then 219 feet west to the confluence, or 117 feet further west on Holloway Ave., and then 223 feet north to the confluence.
