photoMychell found Starke municipal tank

Discovered as I was passing through Starke following a caching run in Gainesville. I have come to discover that small town water towers have a tendency to also be benchmarks. I snapped a shot under this assumption and was proven correct . YAY!

There she is.

There it is!

We found GCYMV4 nearby and noticed this mark as we drove by it.

Found it on our trip north to NC. This tank fits the description posted in 1959 but I do not believe it to be the original 1937 tank. The posted coords are at least a half mile off. Skyboy01
