Found along with horseshoechamp making our way to Stone Mountain

Found with Funfinderone on our way north

Observed in good shape while caching.

Found many times, but wasn't sure if I could log it. Now that I realize that there actually isn't a benchmark disk I'm willing to claim the find. I wish I knew more of the history.

Thanks!

BM #3 of the day - first recovered mark. Found the mark as described by the other logs - on fenced in and overgrown property. BM #5 total.

Mark recoved as described from a visual distance. Whe tank is no longer blackbut painted white

This tank is fairly easy to locate, but is unapproachable, since it is in fenced property. The property is overgrown and up for sale.

Tank looking from east to west.

The mill has been closed for many years, but you can still see the tank. It's silver in color now, not black as it used to be.
