E is for the letter R.

So this means we should look for "R 0" instead of "E 0"?

 

Just to be sure I understand, we can still look for marks from previous weeks and have them added to our score, correct?

Yeah, what wwf said. I'm confused, as usual.

 

And per the other thread (my request), can one of these (R0 ??) be used for Triangulation station beginning with that letter?

E ? R ?

 

Geo: I guess we don't understand what you meant on the E and R business.

Yes you are looking for Stations with the Letter RXX.

 

Yes you can continue looking,just make note of which week in your log it will make it easier on the judges.

 

Sorry for the delay this is the first opportunity to get logged in I have had since the forum was down.

I tried all last night to sign in but it would not work.

And per the inclusion of the wildcard zero in "E 0XX R", the "XX" in that designation can be our choice of letters as well as numbers? So we can look for R12, R34, ROGER, RANCH, etc.?

Oh, well! I prefer savory snacks anyway. :D

 

As a benchmarker, I expect my target to remain stationary. :D

Ummm....

Column "K" is the same as last week (4XX). Is that right?

And, not that I'm complaining, but column "N", our triangulation station for the week is "G"? I didn't think we were going outside the letters BENCHMARK?

 

Just wondering if there were any typos?

The only typo I can confirm is the "Column N" is actually "Column M". :)

It all looks correct to me.

I let the girls pick the numbers and they just fell that way.

 

I never could bet that lnmop.

 

And on the free space it is anything you want to put in there any designation it is free to do with how you please.

 

No on the letters only being BENCHMARK It could be any letter.

Just to double check, can we add our new finds to any of the previous week's numbers? A long three day weekend with lots of nice weather predicted means getting out and actually benchmark hunting!

We have been doing so each week. We just put a short "Week #_" for Geo to know where those points go.
