(visited by Jack Frickey)

05-Mar-2006 -- Cheryl and I had just attended a dance weekend in York, PA. As is our custom, we decided to visit some geodashing dashpoints on our way home. This time we included this confluence in our itinerary.

We left York about noon and traveled east on US-30 the 40 miles to Hoffmeier Road where we turned north and proceeded a little over a half mile to the two story white house with green trim noted in earlier reports behind which the confluence was. I knocked and was greeted by a short pleasant woman and two dogs. I explained my mission and she indicated she had no problem with my walking back to the confluence. Dolly, a small white pug nosed dog followed me off the porch before being called back by the lady. I grabbed my GPSr, compass and my coat from the car and proceeded across the open field and the biting cold wind. Several dogs in kennels beside the house barked loudly as I made my way past them and up the hill to the confluence. The confluence was a few feet south of a wooded area that shielded the wind while I took the usual pictures of the GPSr at all zeros and the views to the east along the edge of the woods (photo #1), to the south up the gradual incline (photo #2), to the north into the woods showing a recently uprooted tree (photo #3) and to the west back toward the house (photo #4). I quickly returned to Cheryl who was waiting in the car and we headed east to the next stop at a dashpoint in eastern Philadelphia.
