26-Mar-2006 -- The Great Adventure – Stage Nine
- A proposed trip to Mankato, Minnesota to work with three groups named Kids Against Hunger, with Outreach Africa, and Life Tracks which are non profit groups that help disadvantaged groups around the world, sparked my interest in seeing if I could hit a bunch of confluences while on the trip.
After checking GoogleEarth it looked very possible with one minor problem, most would be latitude changes. In this area the distance between latitude change confluences is about 69 miles.
The total round trip was accomplished in 5 days and a total of 11 confluences. Two of the days had 5 confluences visited on each of the days. The trip included 34N 97W, 35N 97W, 36N 97W, 37N 97W, 38N 97W, 44N 94N, 42N 93W, 42N 94W, 41N 94W, 41N 95W, AND 40N 95W.
Love these that are near a road, even if it is a dirt road. Arrived at the location and drove down the driveway to get permission to go out to the confluence. Alas no one was home so quickly drove back down the drive way to a spot where the truck would not be in the photos.
Cool but not wet so it was a quick “find” with photo’s taken. Back to the truck and heading west.
Great Adventure Stage Nine complete. Now on to 41N 95W
