Last week I went out EARLY one morning with a friend to find 34 N latitude, 117 W longitude, contributing to the Confluence Project. He’d been to this site multiple times, but never in a foggy rain, and we had a very memorable time scrambling over hill and dale. For a while we had the latitude right on, then the longitude, and every time found it impossible to have one “stick” while we transversed through the dense and scrubby ceanothus to nail the other. Our GPS trails showed that we’d clearly cross the exact site multiple times, just didn’t alight there very long!
Joseph has actually been to MANY confluence sites. It’s a bit of a hobby-gone-wild. I love my geo-geeky friends.
