(visited by Gerard McClafferty and David Salisbury)

03-Oct-2008 -- My brother had found the confluence near Manuel's in the north of the province years ago, a fact that I'd mentioned to Dave when he brought up the subject. Since we'd already done some geocaching with my GPS and he badly wanted to visit a confluence we decided to go for it.

The site is only about 17km from my home as the crow flies, but there were some challenges ahead of us. Reading the log from the previous visitors was interesting, since there have been some changes...

We found the road just as they'd mentioned, but were met with a huge "no trespassing" sign. Our attempt along the side of the stream was also unsuccessful, so I consulted the GPS. We discovered that an attempt might be made from the "Grub Road" and found a bit of a spot big enough to park a car and what seemed to be an overgrown road heading roughly in our desired direction.

Using my and my wife's Garmins we bushwhacked through 2km of clearcuts and overgrown forest, sometimes intersecting with long unused logging trails. When we got to the point there were no trees to block our signal; they had mostly been cut down. We wanted to somehow mark the spot but couldn't even find a rock. Dave stacked some logs on the site and we marked it with a piece of trail tape we found nearby. As you can see by the pics we were standing exactly on the confluence point.

Coordinator's Note: This visit is marked as "incomplete" because it does not meet our Photo Requirements As per FAQ 3.4 the marking of a confluence is discouraged.
