GF0992 X 348 SETTING 66 1ST 10 + 5 SNOW

See notes on benchmark page I hope it qualifies for snow.

After a 300 mile drive in the freezing weather after MOGA 2009 and at 3:00 AM this one was a little tough I was still soaked from the days events as it rained all day.

I actually got the first images on 3/21/2009 but this chance came by.

Went looking for two that I had not found before, and I didn't find them again! Oh, well. Nice half mile hike up to the AT on Sunrise Mountain. Of course, I had to walk by this one that I had found before...

These are being resubmitted for the contest. Originally submitted on 3-22-09 without our GPS'r in the picture.

As everyone knows non disk type marks need to have a GPS in the picture. We received no points for them. We've updated our Geocaching.com logs to include our pictures with our GPS in them.

 

Setting 59

MF1257 - Setting 59 Have to use the NGS Database sheet for the setting on this one. - 1 point

We need to correct the amount of Snow Points we claimed on 3-30-09 for ME1851.

Logging another find for the contest. This mark is not the same as above post (ME1851) it's a new find.

Hope this isn't confusing. It's another snow find.

Went looking for five today (two of which I couldn't find the last time. I know they're there. I just cannot find them!) The disappointing one had the listed approach closed off my NPS. When I finally figured out a different way in, I ran out of time, with 300' left to climb. Oh,well.

Well, I did find one!!!!

Well, we were geocaching in the city, and had to pass St. Pat's on the way back to the subway, anyway... And Andy Bear had never found this one...

KU1450 825 Setting = 30 1 point!

Interesting. St. Patrick's Cathedral is considered 30 = light structure, whereas

KV0462 L 62 Setting = 36 1 point!

The window well at the old Secaucus Public Library is considered 36 = massive structure. Oh, well.

Went out to Colorado over this past weekend to visit my folks on my BDay. Suprisingly, I got quite a few finds in for me. And remember, I'm still trying to be last! :rolleyes: Tho, I think I did pretty good on my BDay.

+10 for crossing the 9-setting line! Woot!

Total This Weekend: 103

 

(*) - The designation may not match. GC.COM's datasheet has it different than the NGS one; it's reversed. The NGS current designation is what I have, the GC.COM is "X 1=5186".

(**) - This one may require the judge's attention. JK0076 seems to be a duplicate of JK0982. I only have one listed here. One datasheet says it's reset in 1972, the other 1982. Both descriptions put the mark in the SAME SPOT, and there is no other mark on that bridge. The main difference between the descriptions is the lack of mention of the Santa Fe line. The sheets are also mixed as far as setting and information. For example, JK0076 says it's a BM disk stamped "... 1972". JK0982 says it's a Vertical Control disk stamped "... 1982". It IS a vertical control disk, but it's stamped ".. 1972". I E-mailed DaveD, and he said that he would look at it next week when he got back into the country.

Note 1: This is not nearly as much fun in the rain!

Note 2: I am completely befuddled by the differences between light structure vs massive structure. Or retaining wall vs massive retaining wall vs abutment or pier of large bridge. They all look the same to me! But, it's the setting that counts, so here goes:

May 3, in the rain...

AG9916 12 W 3 Setting = 15 10 points for first

KV0545 S 26 Setting = 37 10 points for first, 5 points for pre-1950

AH9190 12 X 3 Setting = 32 10 points for first

KV6617 SC 201 Setting = 31 10 points for first

KV6524 27731 Setting = 38 10 points for first

Plus 10 point bonus for nine diferent settings.

Total for the day: 65 points. Not every day I wander around Piscataway in the rain!

oops, correcting thanks to the judges - I didn't find CZ2380 (yet) so CZ2397 is first for setting. I need to pay more attention to descriptions, much less attention to previous "finders". They all got this one wrong, too :P

I re-visited CZ2380, it is probably buried, in a city park so I won't dig without permission.

 

And of course, I keep finding lots of markers that aren't in the GS database. sigh.
