+Harry Dolphin Posted October 31, 2006 Share Posted October 31, 2006 In my naïveté, two years ago, I went looking for a benchmark, blindly following the GPS. KV1301. I went back last weekend, following the description. The Shell station is now a Sunoco. The intersection has been rebuilt. It is now the intersection of Rte 206 and County Route 513 (though everyone still calls it Rte 24.) Lo and behold! The new traffic island has a four inch plastic pipe (top is level with the concrete.) I cannot think of another reason for that pipe than to provide access to the benchmark. I did not have the proper equipment. Too small for a trowel. I probed and dug with my pocket knife, but could not find the bottom. So, the question is: Small traffic island in a major intersection... The Chester cops are not noted for being very friendly. Weekends bring a lot of 'cutesy, antique-town' muggles. How do I crouch in a major intersection, on a small traffic island, and dig with a spoon, without getting arrested, or questioned by the local constabulary? (Dolphin hates DNFs!)
