(visited by David Mower)

07-Oct-2009 -- I successfully visited this confluence at about 1730 hours. It is behind the Pilot Travel Center truck stop at exit 204 on Interstate Highway 71. Diane and I drove down from Cleveland where we were staying. She waited in the car in the McDonalds parking lot just north of the truck stop. I walked west through the 40 or 50 parked semi-trucks to an open field that was covered with very tall weeds.

The weeds were so tall and dense that it was impossible to determine the ground surface underneath. But, it was only 100 meters to the point, so I threw caution to the wind and jumped in. I suffered no mishaps and soon arrived at the confluence, my clothing covered with many tiny stickers.

Its always magical to see those ten zeroes on the GPS screen. Thanks for getting me out!
