Must Read!

Benchmarks may be on private property or in dangerous locations. Obey local laws. By using the services on Geocaching.com you agree to this disclaimer.

Yeah, what LSUFan said. Nobody logging this one as a find actually found it.

Just for everyone's information, this benchmark is NOT the one near GC10R84 Fourteen Mile Creek cache. It has been erroneously logged by several geocachers. The benchmark near the cache has a designation of 18V-T 1969. It was placed out by the MS Highway Department in 1969.

As you geocache, you may run across benchmarks. What you need to always keep in mind, is not all benchmarks will be in the NGS database, which is the one gc.com has listed on their website. Many agencies place out benchmarks, including the MS Highway Department. The NGS database will have some other agencies benchmarks included in their database, if they meet the NGS requirements for inclusion..........however there are going to be as many that do not meet these requirements, than those that do. So you have a good chance of finding a benchmark that is not going to be loggable on gc.com. The one (pic posted) near GC10R84 is not loggable on gc.com

You will need to always read the datasheet, and make sure that the designation inscribed on the benchmark matches what the datasheet says it should.

Hopefully this will help out everyone in the future, and make sure that you are logging the correct benchmark. Benchmarking can be a very enjoyable addition to geocaching.

Although I did not find the 14 mile creek cache I did spy this marker.

Found it while at Fourteen Mile Creek

found with hooligan a few months ago

Found looking for a micro in the area

DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1956 1.8 MI SW FROM RAYMOND. LOCATED ABOUT 1.8 MILES SOUTHWEST ALONG THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD FROM THE STATION IN RAYMOND, AT THE CROSSING AT STATE HIGHWAY 18, ABOUT 168 FEET SOUTH OF THE SOUTH END OF BRIDGE LN 16.6, 36 FEET EAST OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE TRACK, AND 33 FEET SOUTH OF THE CENTER OF THE HIGHWAY. A STANDARD DISK, STAMPED E 57 1935, AND SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE POST.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.) The vertical order pertains to the superseded datum.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
