30-Jul-2004 -- Whenever I travel, I always look for a nearby confluence point. In this case, I was in Portland for OSCON (O'Reilly's Open Source Conference), travelling afterwards down to Corvallis. Since the confluence point is right in the middle of the on-ramp, and about fifty feet from I-5 itself, I couldn't imagine not stopping. Unlike Ada Kerman, who in visit #2 was relegated to using a Polaroid, I had my nifty new Kyocera 4Mpixel camera. Speaking of Ada, I consider it an honor to visit one of her confluence points, since it was her father who directed my GPS interest at the site his daughter discovered. This site, in fact.

The pictures are unremarkable, except to note that they are actually NOT at the confluence point. You can see in picture #1 why I didn't take the pictures right at the confluence point, which is about twelve feet to my left. Traffic was pretty heavy. I wasn't able to let the GPS settle to an all-zeros value. Perhaps late at night when people don't want to get from 99W to I-5?
