(visited by Sam Gallucci)

24-May-2013 -- The family and I were on our way to visit cousins in Wichita, Kansas. Seeing as this confluence was only a couple miles off the interstate I figured it might be an easy one. The only catch was our gas situation. When we came to the exit for the confluence we had 23 miles left to empty and 12 miles to the next gas on the interstate. Luckily the confluence was only a couple miles in. We reached the closest by car in a few minutes after missing a turn. The confluence lies in what was a field of dead hay stubble. I knew it was hay because I am allergic to the stuff. I ran out to the zero point took my photos and ran back. When I got back my ankles were red and itchy. This would be the first of three completed this weekend. The only one I couldn't get just by driving. And we made it to the next gas stop with only 9 miles left in the tank.
