ArtMan Posted August 14, 2005 Share Posted August 14, 2005 Had a long, hot, tiring but highly successful day of benchmarking today. For those familiar with the greater DC area, I started south of La Plata, Maryland, and got as far as Colonial Beach, Virginia. I haven't tallied it all yet, but I think I logged about 25 marks found, and another half-dozen or so unfound. My best day ever. Almost all were previously unlogged on Geocaching, and most of the Maryland ones hadn't been logged at NGS since the 1970s. (The U.S. Power Squadrons has apparently been quite busy in Westmoreland County, Virginia.) Among the highlights were a couple of interesting conversations -- one with an old-timer who had a monument on his property: he was with the Army map corps in WWII and spoke (at length!) about running control on Guam. Another, a marine biologist, saw my GPSr and asked if I was a Geocacher. He told me that the Tidal mark I was looking for, seemingly immovable on concrete, was actually moved several inches when a new concrete "boardwalk" was laid after Hurricane Isabel in 2003. Gotta love your local informants. -ArtMan- Quote Link to comment
