Went on an epic Geocaching road trip today from Ohio into Michigan. Snagged 17 caches, 1 NGS benchmark, 9 different cache containers, 4 new Ohio counties, 4 new Michigan counties, 2 Geocaching souvenirs and covered 365 miles. What a ride!

Find #3: Made a quick find on this NGS benchmark. Forgot how small these things are. Thanks shorbird for your helpful photos in your previous log.

Only the second NGS benchmark I've found. It was an easy find but looks like it may have been moved slightly from its original location. In good shape otherwise.

The mark is in good condition.

DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1950 2.2 MI S FROM NORTH LIMA. ABOUT 2.5 MILES SOUTH ALONG STATE HIGHWAY 7 FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH STATE HIGHWAY 165 AT NORTH LIMA, ON THE WEST SIDE OF STATE HIGHWAY 7 NEAR A T-INTERSECTION WITH A DIRT ROAD LEADING TO A FARM HOUSE TO THE WEST. IT IS 49 FEET NORTH OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE DIRT ROAD, 26 FEET WEST OF THE CENTERLINE OF STATE HIGHWAY 7, 6 FEET WEST OF A TELEPHONE POLE 4 OVER 75. A TRIANGULATION REFERENCE DISK SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE POST AND PROJECTING 4 INCHES.

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.
