Located easily...harder to miss it

Didn't realize this was a bench mark.

In town on work to visit another company. I drove past this tank for the last three days.

Located in the back yard of my office

Pasted it everyday for 30 years did'nt now it was a benchmark. This is acutally the second tank and they are planning to upgrade this one.

Decided to find some benchmarks on a warm day and stay in the vehicle as much as possible. Drove up as close as possible.
