14-Nov-1999 -- We were headed west for a little vacation; a weekend in the picturesque mountains of North Carolina with some friends. A quick glance at the Tiger Mapping Service showed a possible easy mark just outside of High Point, only a few miles off our route to the West. I figured we could pick it up on the way there.

I was wrong. Due to a combination of bad timing and worse traffic, the sky got way too dark before we even got near the site. Stopping at a Shoney's near the site to eat, we got a picture of the GPS, just in case we suffered the same mishap on the way back.

The trip back started much earlier, and we got to the site with plenty of daylight left. The site was in an apartment complex on the edge of a man-made recreational lake. A little running around with the car, a little walk down the hill behind some of the buildings, and we were right on top of the confluence (according to the GPS). Three or four pictures, and we were out of there. I wish all of the spots were that easy.
