10-Mar-2001 -- My brother and I have gone to find confluence areas alone, but we wanted to try
some together. We started out early to try to get two confluence's in middle Tennessee in
We drove to one first that appeared to be near the interstate, and near a main road.
As we approached the confluence, we slowed and came to an area where there were two
houses across the road from each other. My GPS said the position was just behind us.
We got out to walk back to the confluence, and we were greeted by a group of cows
and a dog. The dog barked at us, but just seemed to be protective and not vicious. The
cows were cautiously curious but crept closer as we calculated our confluence. We
walked back across the road a bit and did the confluence dance to get the GPS to
settle and zero out. We placed a stake at the confluence point with the latitude and
longitude and the web address written on it. We took our picture next to the stake we
placed with the road heading South in the background.
The photo of the white house with a large open field behind it is looking to the northeast
from the confluence. The photo of the large field is the view to the southeast. The curious
cows are due west of the confluence point, and the other white house with the dog in the
right front yard is to the northwest. I also have a photo of my GPS with all the zeros. This is
quite a beautiful area, and we both were dreaming of a day when we could move to an area
as nice as this. We packed up, and moved onto our next confluence at
