Well, twelve inches of icy snow put a crimp on our benchmarking plans. So, we went for an FTF on a mystery cache in Central Park instead, with a subway ride to Long Island City, Queens for another cache, and one benchmark for this weekend. Oh, well. It usually snows for Saint Paddy's Day anyway.

Had a nice day out near Lake Matthews, a bit southeast of here. Lots more out there, also! Unfortunately, no bonus types, yet.

Gotta love those strings! (OK, one DNF near the end)


And a nice old one from 1935, not found since 1958. Old for out here....

BY1298, RV 2, REG

BY1299, A 1161, REG


There is not a sheet for BY1299 in the GC database. However, I got the NGS data sheet while doing a search in the NGS database for Cherokee County Texas. So, I placed my photos of this mark on the BY1298 log. By the way, the disk is gone. All that is left is the hollow center post. Please advise.

Finally a qualifying find! With more than two feet of ice-hard snow on the ground, a very limited search area, and temps never getting above single digits (in fact, usually BELOW zero!) since the first of March I was beginning to despair...


I think with a '2' now in hand I'll go look for the rest of the 'Old Farts'... :D

Tough logging benchmarks on Sunday afternoons! 9 for 12 today.

KV0639 REG

KV6906 DNF (Well, Sparkie48 logged a DNF for the wrong benchmark!)

KV6905 DNF (Sparkie48 did not find this one. Look where he put the GPS in relationship to the designation painted on the sidewalk, and note his note for KV6906.)

The older benchmarks are more fun! I DNFed two triangulation stations today, though I found three reference marks. Just didn't think it would have worked to dig in the lawn of the million dollar home. Oh, well.)

I listed

LC0483 incorrectly yesterday. I'll straighten it out tomorrow when I drop by there again and see if I can pick up another one or two in that group and in that town, Wapella, IL.


For today, I found a whopping one.
