*sigh* Went out in search of some benchmarks with nothing more than the coordinates in the GPSr. What a STUPID thing to do. Oh well, here are the very few we managed to find on 19 May....


PN0757 REG


PN0759 REG


PN0760 REG


PN0761 REG


PN0762 REG



Now to see what ones hubby found in North Dakota this past weekend. It is OK to "divide and conquer" right?

Man, some of you guys are recovery machines (Doc, AZ )!!!!

Saturday was a decent day for me.... Oh yeah, I did spend a good part of the day at the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) open house. Wow! Really cool stuff !! Unfortunately, none of their benchmarks were accessible to me. Darn. They have some neat ones up on the hill by their antennas....

Pretty lousy benchmark hunting day today but I did find out where a lot of benchmarks aren't and won 4 tickets to a White Sox game partly because I was benchmarking. Can't have everything, I guess.

5/28/07 Gotta make up for lost time! Need cheap drive by's! But Passaic and Paterson?!?

KV4026 REG

KV3935 REG

KV4213 REG

KV4215 REG

KV3426 REG

KV3448 REG

KV3428 REG

I probably shouldn't have gone out with the thunderstorms, but decided to get one more weekend in.

I had to seek out something to park under for about 4 hours but fortunately had brought my laptop with me so I was able to keep busy. As I drove around, I saw lots of flooding. Since I was doing mainly culverts today (Sunday), you will see some of the flood waters being drained off in the pictures.


You might not be able to read AX1112 (seems to have been vandalized with a hammer) and a couple seem to have the wrong year in the datasheet for when the benchmark was placed (AX0798, AX0797).

This will be the end of the contest for me. Due to a serious family illness I have to go several hundred miles and won't even have access to a computer I can put digital pictures on. So, things will just fall where they may from now on. It has been fun even after gas prices went crazy. Enjoyed getting really into what is a new hobby for me. Thanks to 2oldfarts for sponsoring the contest and Happy Hunting to all of you, as John says.

This is a correction from my last finding log. I listed AI3481 twice and should have listed the one below. That's what I get for trying to do more than one thing at a time. Happy Hunting everyone. I'm at a library computer for a few weeks and they frown on downloading pics. So, I'll just watch how this comes out. Good luck everyone.

Just one lonely one this week. Too much real-world stuff to do. Maybe I'll be able to grab a few more before Sunday night.
