There's a virtual at that spot: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC6E01

I thought it was a pretty neat marker for that point. It's also pretty cool to see your GPS zero out (although I could only get it down to N45 00.001

I did that one this weekend. Another cool one. This one had better parking as it is right next to a dead end street. I could see where this intersection would be busy any time other than 9am on a Sunday.

Caches on any parellel will zero out the GPS... For example N45 00.000 and W093 xx.xxx. There are two virtuals in the area that are on the 45th... One is a plaque on the side of the street which says this is where the parellel crosses (or something) and the other is on a triangular spit of land that has the incorrect W coords... It's off by quite a bit.

I came very close! I'll probably go back to get a better reading when I don't have a pregnant wife with me that has to use the bathroom!

I used to do that and noticed that on some of my computers I couldn't see the link text as a different shade of green. Moe had a great idea to surround the link itself in RED. That way you know.
