(visited by Gordon J Horton)

16-Sep-2000 -- Set up Magellan GPS 315...Goto 55N6W.

Having borrowed The Horton Group (Blatant Advertising) digital camera I set off at 8 a.m. Looked at Map... That way... Go.

Traveled through countryside noticed different flags denoting different allegiances. Where will the Confluence be... on an inaccessible spot?

The Confluence is located 0.8km from a lane. Having asked around and satisfying myself that getting the Confluence would not cause any problems, walked up to the second field from the lane the most luscious green grass I have seen if it hadn't been raining I would have swam in it.

Followed the GPS arrow for 15 minutes (low on the learning curve w.r.t. navigation). Eureka 55N6W number two (in Ireland). Oh for a Guinness in the back of a Jaguar. The area around 55N6W is a beautiful area.

As Dorothy says "no place like home" so off I toddled.

*Drive carefully*
