(visited by j proctor)

24-Jun-2000 -- After two unsuccessful attempts (30°N 82°W and 41°N 77°W) in a row, I deserved an easy one. I got it.

I turned east off US 15 about a mile south of the NY state line (which is very near 42°N), drove past some farms and some trees for a few miles, actually crossed the state line for a couple hundred yards (dirt road on that side), then, as predicted, came to a fork in the road that straddled the confluence. I tried the NY side first, since it looked like it might be a little closer, but it was dense woods and a fairly steep-looking hill.

From the PA side, it was obvious the hot spot was in the middle of a good-sized field. I parked on the side of the road at the correct meridian, then walked about 300 yards north. If you squint at picture 1, you can see my car in the distance, next to a road sign. The second photo is toward the west, the third toward the east, and the fourth shows the tree line about 50 yards to the north, presumably the NY state line. Pic 5 is the obligatory GPS shot, with a representative sample of the ankle-high grass and weeds.
