Headed east today with Barasaur and TinyTuttle to work on filling in our county maps and add some state maps. I myself got two new states, maybe 13 counties, and a sore backside form riding for 14 hours or 880 miles. Awesome trip, awesome company and some really great caches. Thanks for all the caches for us to find.

found out while geocaching

Took the day to make a drive to get counties. We covered 880 miles over 18 hours and gathered around 46 caches on the day. That equates to 2.5 caches per hour, and roughly 19 miles between caches. We covered from Fort Collins to Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico as well. What a full and fun day.

Nice to get a two fer, thanks

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (G = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
