Searching for location data for U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey Benchmark

Recommended Posts

I did not find this benchmark so i don't have coordinates. I am trying to determine it's location. State, county, etc. Any advice on where to search? Thanks!

I used the advanced search  https://www.geocaching.com/mark/nearest.aspx

 

There are too many in the country for an easy search by designation to easily search without knowing the state.   Seeing that most of your geocache finds were in Texas and California, I specified each of those and the designation F 139 (with space).  The results were not disks set in 1962. However, trying some other Southwest states finds this likely candidate in Arizona that has many logs

Thanks Bill! That's it. Looks like it's actually in Kane County, UT. How did you search by state? I didn't see that option in the advanced search feature.

Oops - sorry, yes it's Utah.  I confused myself by having too many tabs open at once.

You click the button for Designation and enter F 139 with the space.

Right below that you can optionally specify the 2-letter state abbreviation.
