We must have looked at tad out of place. The locals were watching us from every street corner. After we took a photo of disk one of them waited til we walked off and went over to see what we were looking at. Disk is in good shape, the cement has been redone where the marker sits.

We drove right up to this one and took the picture within seconds.

Out with zamsfamily and zamsgrl getting 6 caches and a benchmark to qualify for the Lonestar Busy Day cache. This benchmark completes the requirements. There's new concrete surrounding the mark now.

Found with zamsfamily and ham2405.

Found on our BUSY saturday morning of finding 6 different caches and a benchmark for a challenge cache. Took picture.

On the way back from a very difficult cache we pulled in to grab this one. Still there, but the concrete around it is kind of a mess.

I pass this marker every day going to and from work. It's about time I logged it! Recovered in good condition.

Found it. Read the other user comments. It is 139 feet North of the Intersection on the West Side of the Street near a telephone pole.

Found with Amada, she spotted it as we were pulling off the road. A nice end to a cold miserable day out having fun.

My first benchmark. Glanced at the description in the Documented History and got hung up on "at the intersection". Took a few minutes to figure out it is north of the intersection. It would be helpful if the word "north" were inserted after "feet" so the sentence would read "139 feet NORTH of center of Arkansas. Otherwise, exactly as described. Parking not a problem. Pulled up next to it and only had to get out of car for closeup picture.

Found it last month but just noticed we hadn't logged it. Good thing I was checking logs before tossing them. Description of location was perfect and you must have a pilot and navigator to make this one easier. I hate when I'm alone, near a spot, and can't park to go get the find. Luckily the team was together today!

On my second visit to this site, I found the mark north of Arkansas lane on the west side of the street. It is two or three feet southeast of a utility pole, about halfway between the pole and the street. Look for a mass of greenish goo (possibly paint) spilled in the gutter nearby. It is very near a highway sign (Right Lane Ends) and parking is not a problem.

A close-up of the mark.

Exactly as described. 8th disc of the day.

I drove up to within 5 feet of the disc, got out of the truck, and locked the keys in... dumb luck...
