    Not Found?

    Apparently they take it pretty seriously too, judging from their web site. Could it be because of the coastline? The vast majority of the benchmarks I've recovered from the NGS database have originally been set by the NCGS and are stamped as such. Furthermore it appears they are still actively setting benchmarks. I recovered one yesterday (not in the NGS database) that was dated 2000. All this makes for a very large selection of benchmarks to hunt.

    2OF: I fixed the second link above. When I cut/paste I edited the link text but not the link. -J

    Not Found?

    I don't post much but I feel today's hunting is worth a small bit of gloating. Of the 15 benchmarks I logged today, three were previously logged "NOT FOUND," including one that was logged not found by the NGS! I wish my digital camera wasn't so stupid. It's very sensitive to humidity, and with this being coastal North Carolina during the rainy season, it refuses to work at all outdoors most of the time, so I quit even bothering with pictures. On a different note, when you guys go on a hunting run, how long do you usually stay out? I tend to make a day out of it when I do it.
  5. I went hunting for EA0426, and I think I found it, but I have no clue what "chiseled square" marks look like. Can somebody take a look at the pic in my log and tell me if this is the mark?
  6. The North Carolina Geodetic Survey has a lot of good information on their site, including AutoCAD .DWG format county maps with benchmarks. Jeff Workman | jworkman@pimpworks.org | http://www.pimpworks.org
  7. Where does one *legally* obtain traffic cones anyhow? These would come in handy. Jeff Workman | jworkman@pimpworks.org | http://www.pimpworks.org
  8. What's the strangest benchmark designation you've found? I recovered one yesterday named 'SHEEP' although I could see no current reason for it to be named thusly. During benchmark research I found another one named 'MOM' but it was named that way because there was once a restaurant adjacent to it named 'Mom's Diner' or something like that. Today I also found one named 'DEVIL', a rather new one at that (1999) but could find no reason for it to be named that way. Jeff Workman | jworkman@pimpworks.org | http://www.pimpworks.org
