The geocache (GC37B7) may have been virtual, but the mark it utilizes is very much real.

Cool!

You can't help but recover this one if you are doing that other thing . . .

Off to find some more control, Johann Panholtz

First benchmark find.

Easy find. Didn't really need the GPSr to find this one.
But using a benchmark like this is a great way to
check the accuracy of your GPSr. Especially this
one. No trees or buildings nearby. Nothing to block
the view to the sky. The GPSr had locked on 9
satellites. Lat reading was off -0.001 minute. Lon
reading was right on. I'd say that was close
enough for a non-WAAS enabled receiver.

i found this one quit some time ago, but apparently failed to make a log entry.
Well it is still there and hasn't moved or changed at all in the past few months.

Found while doing the geocache called Price Cutter. This is my first Benchmark. Fun find!!

I found this benchmark while doing a cache in this area, price cutter

I got a good close-up of this one.

After reviewing the logs, I agree with disclosing another cache, so I deleted my picture....

Found this one when looking for price cutter. Not a difficult find at all. Never logged this, after forgetting about it. Seemed too busy trying to find other caches that day. Only remembered to log this after I found the sheet for it laying on my desk at home.

Found when we did the price cutter cache!

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in September 1997.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.)
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
