(visited by Ross Finlayson)

06-Apr-2011 -- While planning my drive from Little Rock, Arkansas, to Memphis, Tennessee, I noticed this easy-looking confluence point very close to the freeway. The most difficult part of reaching this point turned out to be finding the correct freeway exit, which happens to be several miles to the west. Fortunately, my GPS receiver's routing software did its job, directing me first to the correct freeway exit, and then the rural roads (both paved and gravel - running parallel to the freeway for several miles - that took me towards the confluence point.

One final gravel road took me northwards, ending up just 0.3 miles east of the confluence point. From there it was an easy walk - first west, then north - along the banks of irrigation canals - to reach the confluence point, which lies just a couple of feet west, inside a plowed field.

Getting 'all zeroes' required stepping just a few feet onto the field, but fortunately the soil was dry on the day of my visit, so I didn't get my shoes dirty at all.
