#1: The view North

(visited by Alan Fox, Carolyn Fox and Symon)

17-Dec-2010 -- While on a road trip from Regina, Saskatchewan Canada to Florida to spend Christmas and New Years with our daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughters, we visited a few confluences. It was 1:15 PM when we arrived at this one located at "American Pro Service Center Inc" on busy US Highway 441. American Pro is an Automotive/RV Repair Center. The Florida skies were blue and the sun was shining. It was 77°F. We pulled into the parking lot and drove off to the side in order to stay out of the way.

The friendly American Pro Service guys knew about the project so were fine with us being on their property. They also knew of geocaches hidden just outside their fence. It turned out that Alan got the zeros on the GPS right behind our vehicle. We had driven to the spot! How easy was that!! Alan moved our vehicle so it wouldn't be in the photos.

We got the direction photos and a few from around the lot, all within about a hundred meters of the confluence. There were some big Recreation Vehicles parked on the lot. Next door is, "Tyger Golf Carts and More - for sale or lease". There were some very nice little carts that would be fun to drive around an RV court while spending the winter in Florida! VERY tempting!! In hindsight, it may have been the fact that we viewed these wonderful "confluence" golf carts that created subconscious thoughts which prompted us to rent a cart during our stay in Key West, Florida three weeks later! Fun!!!
