I spent a good part of the day walking along the sometimes lovely, oftentimes seedy Brooklyn waterfront from Bay Ridge to Redhook. I found 11 out of 22 total, and 8 out of 18 for eligible marks. Not bad.

 

KV0563/1952/Yes/No *

KV0561/1952/Yes/No

KV0565/1934/No/No

KV0567/1934/No/No

KV0568/1934/No/No **

KV0569/1934/No/No **

KV0570/1952/Yes/No

 

* - I have marked these as FTFs. They have what looks like redundant entries for the monumentation. See what you think. I'll go by whatever the judges decide.

 

** - The monumentation date on the NGS datasheets for these marks (1934) is wrong. It should be 1909, but as per the rules I put down what was there.

Three last benchmarks in Maine. How could I not hunt for a Three For One? (Plus the fire tower, which doesn't count here.) Unfortunately, we didn't have the opportunity to hunt for more, including old drill holes. And, my sister's friend no longer runs the Lobster Boat Tours. Oh, well. Oh, well. We had a great time.

I was in northwest Maine last week hiking and peak bagging along the Canadian border. I found a number of the old boundary monuments (1845) and International Boundary Commision (IBC) triangulation stations (1915-1916) on or near the border. They illustrate two important parts of the process. 1) In 1842 a treaty was signed between the US and Canada for this part of the boundary, and in 1845 a joint group from both countries monumented the border. 2) In 1915-16 a full triangulation was done of the complete line and the coordinates of every monument was established.

Disappointing day yesterday. Only 2 for 14 old marks. Too much road widening and curve straightening. No first finds either. Over 95° before10am. Too hot out here. High was 110° or so, and humid. ICKY. Then the house AC broke. Not my day.

OK two days, hot as can be and a number of attempts all DNF, I guess I have nothing else to log. Congrats to those that did better than I, and I have to say that I am happy with were I ended up...maybe ;)
