Claiming some points that I missed earlier.

That is an additional 25 pts

These are from May 18th. Missed a few because the landmarks are gone. Had two DNF's even though I found the landmarks - will have to go back to those again. Coordinates were way off on most of these - some 200-300 meters.

It was sweet being at the top for all of those 34 hours :(

I've run out of close by 1st of settings and close-by bonus marks are getting thin and only 3 weeks left.

Close by? I'm well past close by :( but I've been combining some work on the Arizona Delorme Challenge Cache at the same time. I messed up on Friday, I drove right past a 25 pointer that I had targeted but forgotten to put on the day's agenda.

 

Setting 16

DA1098 Setting=16 10 + 25 (UNK) = 35

 

Setting 30

DA1109 Setting=30 1 + 5 (1960) = 6

I still have my eye on the bonus for 27 different settings, with one long drive and one long hike.

The road was much better than expected so the hike was a lot shorter than I thought it would be, and I was able to pick up a Setting 2:

 

DV2220 Setting=2 10 + 10 (1935) = 20

ME1433 Forgot to add the 1 pt for recovering the mark. So we should have 10 points for age and 1 point for recovery for a total of 11 points instead of the above stated 10.

Sorry....hope we don't confuse anyone.

CZ1412 Setting 31 = 10 pts first of setting

 

CZ0043 Setting 36 = 1 + 10 pre-1935 = 11 pts

 

total points = 21

 

how disappointing, I couldn't get to the marker that would have given me 18 different settings(was donating too much blood to the flora) and another I was looking for has apparently been "removed" (set vertically in the face of a highway bridge pier)

Thanks for the contest, UNK1. It gave me a push into looking for benchmarks, and I ended up finding some new areas to enjoy. Sadly I never got to look for any pre-1900 marks, but in my area the only ones are in the hills along the Mexican border - not a place I want to be hanging out on my own.
