Near final stage of 3 for T cache

Found it while looking for the 2nd stage of the "3 for T" multicache. I was planning on getting the cache first and then looking around the area for this benchmark, but it turns out they are right next to each other.

No trouble finding this one.

Three for T and was found by We, nice twist to a cache-Thanks Team Scrawlinn

Another one that's not likely to just walk off by itself, considering what they anchored it in, huh?

Found this one too... right close to Scawlinn's end of the road. So many benchmarks on this planet... so little Endurium crystals.

-Space Pirate Harrison out.

N 31° 43.525 W 110° 04.983

Right alongside the old RR grade. As Scrawlinn indicates, the original coords may not have been some surveyor's best day.

N 31° 43.527 W 110° 04.982

COORDS a bit off, even after changing datum. See pic for proof. Easy find bewteen point on 3 for T Multi-cache. We play paintball at the old arena S of here. WGS84 COORDS I assigned are not WAAS but should get you closer than the posted WGS 84.
