Missed It By That Much

In the 1960's there was a popular television program called "Get Smart". Actor Don Adams portrayed a bumbling government spy known as Control Agent Maxwell Smart Agent 86. Max had a line for when something he did didn't make the mark. "Missed it by that much."

It appears we missed it by that much a few years ago.

While vacationing in Colorado, we decided to head off to the only place in the United States where the boundaries of four states come together. The Four Corners. We snapped pictures of us placing a foot on the exact mark that allowed us to be standing in 4 states at one time. A marvelous feat, if you'll pardon the pun.

I blogged about the visit HERE.

Imagine my surprise when I'm reading the paper this morning and find out that I really never have stepped foot in 4 states at once. Turns out that the survey is off and the actual site is some 2.5 miles east of the point where we stood.

As you can tell, this blog is named after that survey point. Hopefully we are accurate in our information that is presented here.
