#1: The sign at the roadside park (visit #3)

(visited by Michael G. Koerner, Roger Rowlett and Jeff Woolsey)

This may be the most attempted confluence ever! The State of Wisconsin has placed a small roadside park 300 meters west of the confluence, with a sign and elevation marker (to the nearest minute). Three reports follow from people who have visited the park.

(#1: Roger Rowlett)

07-Nov-1998 -- Visit the most dramatic confluence in North America. 45 North X 90 West. There's a bar, a club, a song, T-Shirts and of course a web site! You're halfway to the North Pole and half way around the Western Hemisphere.

March 1999 -- I was driving around central Wisconsin on a day off in March of 1999 and at the spur of the moment decided to pull off of WI 29 to check out the 45N/90W marker (there is a sign for it on WI 29). I am remiss in not recording the exact date, but it was in mid-late March of 1999. The marker (picture #4) is in a little park (shown in picture #2) just off Meridian Rd (it is the elevation marker shown on the USGS map of the area on the TopoZone map). The marker is in front of a sign shown in picture #1. The actual 45N/90W point is in the private farm field in the background, about 350 meters behind the sign (Marathon County was apparently unable to secure a park at the site iself).

These photos are also on my 45N webpage.

Summer 1999 -- Since I took [these pictures] (last summer) before discovering your site (this evening), the surroundings were not photographed. I had DGPS available, but it stayed in the car. The spot that the DGPS liked better was about a quarter of a mile away, in a ditch by the side of the road that intersects the one this park is on. Room here for maybe a dozen cars to park on the grass inside the chain-link fence; nevertheless I was alone here that afternoon.

Note that the resolution on the monument is nearest minute of arc, which is about a mile in any direction. This uncertainty is much larger than that from forgetting which datum I was using, though given the probable age of the monument I think I used NAD27 CONUS. That there's a monument (no control number, so its accuracy is suspect) here at all is probably more interesting than the swampy spot 1/4 mile away. The nearest NGS monument is more than five miles away.

We love sex. It is no need to search a expert locally, or join any sort of club. You speak to them staying in your place and may find a lot of people who love the same thing as you are. Plus it may be the interesting experience, not just you are to the thing but even if you are enjoy these kinks as wax, chains and submission, domination, discipline and love ropes.

  • Sadism once the objective is to inflict pain;
  • Masochism when someone just loves to endure;
  • A lot of individuals go deep into this kinky life and revel in the BDSM chat.

Are all of the cams purely sexual?

You are aware that bondage can not be any sex related encounter which leads a individual to the pleasure otherwise. Some lovers are just watch live bondage and don't do sexual things including sex of any sort or sex.

There are a lot of cam displays and models who favor this kind of self-presentation. They may enjoy the rope but not to the sex life. You're able to see them play big hotwebcamgirls with no sex stuff. Some versions are having dungeons.

You are able to find a person who search for the submissive if you're dominant or will control you through the internet if you're submissive. You can make her do whatever you need including humiliation and limitation and the punishment, of course.

This chat is all about discipline? Did you know an internet model set her nipples on fire just to host her master? Perhaps you have heard that slaves are going into the chat in time when dominatrix informs them to do so? All this and items that are associated are here in order to your own access.
