My first benchmark!!! It was pretty cooliosis, and easy to find. I had fun since I went with my dad (Klizich), the place where the benchmark is found has a special meaning to me, I went "Where Eagles Dare".

My first benchmark! I was going out caching, had a few coordinates of benchmarks and decided to try this one as I had a good idea where it was. Easy to find, fortunately the snow in this area was gone. This one is dedicated to Vernon's hometown band - the MISFITS!

Well marked and easily found. One of the few marks I've found in Sussex Co. that has a name rather than a code for a designation.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in May 1999.
  • The orthometric height was determined by GPS observations and a high-resolution geoid model.
  • The X, Y, and Z were computed from the position and the ellipsoidal ht.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The ellipsoidal height was determined by GPS observations and is referenced to NAD 83.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
