#1: Looking North to the Confluence

(visited by Allen Lacy, Robert Lacy and Johnnie Lacy)

25-Mar-2001 -- The three of us had just finished placing a geocache at Brushy Mountain in Paulding county. My son and I had already done two confluences 35°N 83°W and 35°N 84°W and had told my brother Johnnie about doing that. He said "Too bad somebody had already gotten 34°N 85°W, because it is just a couple of miles from the cache." I told him that while it is nice to be the first visitors to a confluence, other visits count. So we head off to it. We parked at the same crossing as the first vistor (Ernest Bennett). Then head down the railroad until the GPS pointed 90° from the track and headed into the woods with GPS and compass. It looks like we got very close to same spot as Ernest. This is the first time we ever got the picture of the GPS with all zeros, at the other confluences they would appear, but disappear before I could get the picture.

So picture 1 is looking north to the confluence, we put the camera case on the spot where we got the zeros.  The thick woods in the background are what we had to traverse to get here. Picture 2 is of   Robert, Allen (myself) and Johnnie Lacy standing on the confluence. I forgot to bring the tripod, so it was taken with the camera hanging in a tree. Then the GPS shot is picture 3 with those zeros.
