Looking at the threads on BM's (THAT'S Bench Marks!) and many people are saying the given coordinates seem more like NAD 27 than NAD83. The 83 is very close to the 84 we are used to, but the 27 is off more. Maybe the guys grabbed (or converted) in the wrong datum. Whoops ! __I've never been lost. Fearsome confused sometimes, but never lost.__ I read up a little on NAD 27 and the others. The last benchmark I looked for I switched between Nad 27 and WGS-84 on my gps and I think the difference was about 20 ft. Now the marker was about 200 ft from zero so another 20 ft doesn't really matter. I've cleared just about all caches with 50 miles of me so unless someone else is hiding I can keep the skills sharp hunting markers. Especially when I get a jones for a quick hunt and I don't have a lot of time to dirve around. george Remember: Half the people you meet are below average. Quote Link to comment
