Note: This was the first nighttime confluence.

01-Apr-2000 -- While in Indianapolis, IN. to see the NCAA Men's Final Four my friends and I decided to visit a point. My GPS indicated there was one near us to the north. So at 2am, with my girlfriend as our designated driver we took off in search of the point. This was to be my first attempt at reaching a point without using a detailed map (1:200,000) to get close. We headed northeast on the interstate until we crossed the latitude line, we took the next exit and headed west. We wound thru the woods and came to an intersection that was just northwest of the point. We turned south and found a road running east-west near the point. We drove east until we reached the longitude line and found a place to pull the car off the road. We could see the lights of buildings to the south but I'm not sure exactly what we walked on since it was the middle of the night and dark. We found the point just off the road to the south. It appeared to be the beginnings of a new development site, but in the dark we could not really tell. It was a fun time for the three of us but unfortunately upon returning home and accessing the internet we discovered that this point had allready been visited.
