A Monument to the "Smiley" Family


Recommended Posts

Check out the benchmark that is part of the Monument to the "Smiley" Family :D

 

LY2422 is the PID and several cachers have logged it with some great pictures...

 

I just thought this one was rather appropriate since our people are getting "Smileys" for logging it. :D

 

So, does anyone else know of a humorous mark that they wish to share? I liked it when we started one thread with some of the funny names of the marks...have you found any with interesting names?

..looked thru my logs & most of the names were pretty ordinary - did make a special effort to pull over along I-95 (not too smart) to grab this one - JV6938 ...as it was named in honor of the mall (White Marsh) that my wife was making me drive to after a visit to Baltimore's Inner Harbor...

Most of the "named" PID's are for the property owners where the stations sit. The others are for the area where they are located.

 

Springer

Named for Isabelle Springer, the land owner.

 

ROAR

This one I have no clue on how they named it?

 

George

I have no clue why its named George, its in the middle of nowhere.

I have run across a few named after the landowner, and was pleasantly surprised to have Mr Trump . My favorite local name is OYES, named, I think, in opposite reference to the nearby town of Ono and its (now defunct and gone) O'Yes Restaurant. Perhaps the survey team ate there while they occupied the mark and, since there was already and ONO mark, named this one OYES as a humorous sidebar.

Well in this GF0859 I could not have found a better one.

Since I was there today to recover the Azimuth Mark.

We did run across one GF0872 near GF0871.

 

Or you could get your Kicks on Rt. 66 but don't forget GF0842 maybe Flagstaff Arizona,Barstow....

 

Or maybe someday I will get a GF0840.

 

With over 1000+ I could make up just about any story.
