#1: Deb: Describing what the hell we're doing on this guys property

(visited by Spencer Lindsay and Deborah Lindsay)

This confluence has been visited four times by 11 people, with three of the parties thinking they were first! It is interesting to note the inaccuracy of each confluence visit, even though they all had GPS's.

12-Aug-1999 -- Got another confluence today! Deb and I packed up early and checked out of the hotel in North Hollywierd and followed the GPS down "the 605" to Whittier California. Ever notice how everyone in Southern California calls the freeways "the five" or "the one o one" instead of just the number? Anyway, Deb manned (or Womaned in this case) the laptop with the map of southern California while I navigated the perilous byways on our way. We wound our way up the mountain and down through some absolutely amazing countryside to the exact point of the confluence. Tribe-Sib Leneb called us on the cell phone as soon as we parked, and was on the phone during the entire photo-shoot. We parked the bug, got out and zeroed in on the exact point. It happened to be in the middle of this guy's yard and, incredibly, he was sitting exactly on the spot! It was so cool. We explained what we were doing to him and he was fully psyched! He said he's going to build a marker on the spot. Maybe we've got a convert. Another confluence gatherer.

Final Note: When we got back to the hotel, we discovered that someone had already got this one! Ack! A well, now it's just doubly recorded!
