#1: A cow pattie.

(visited by Alex Jarrett, Becky Anderson, Louis LeGrand and Kord Campbell)

04-Mar-1998 -- While I (Alex) was off visiting Becky and Louis in Oklahoma we decided to do a few degree confluences. So we set off with all sorts of technical equipment -- cameras (digital and film-based), GPS's, a sport-utility vehicle, a tiny palm-top computer and Stephen Hawking to guide us.

It was a windy Oklahoma day (by my standards). Our destination was in a cow pasture right next to a house. Fortunately, no one was home, so we went trespassing. Becky declined to cross the fence, fearing the worst. The most exciting feature was a certain item left behind by cows now far across the field (see picture).

No shotguns or irate owners were brandished, so off we went to the second one of the day, 58 miles to the west.
