Found this benchmark today after finding a cache during my lunch break. It wasn't visible initially , there was a lot of matted grass covering it. The stake made it much easier to locate and clean up.

Just a quick find thanks to GeaugaGarmin's hint.

Found while searching for caches in Lake County thanks to the hint on the "Daughter's Pride" cache. This is our first loggable benchmark. Will add photo when I download from the camera.

Found at end of a caching run with GeaugaGarmin.

Nearby the Daughter's Pride virtual cache. Wish all benchmarks were this easy to find!

Found with Callmeox and Taranis. Ox has the photos (and corrupt copy of Firefox). My first benchmark.

Found this with Team Taranis and Deuceman. My first benchmark as well.

First benchmark for us. Quick find today with Deuce and Ox. Ox sent me the pictures to post due to a bad firefox.

Note: found this benchmark while out today on a virtual caching route. Thanks Gueaga Garmin for mentioning it on her cache page, otherwise we wouldn’t have known it was out here!
Happy Hunting!

Easy find as can be seen by picture......easy to see how these can be overlooked by almost anyone.

My first official benchmark find! (The first I found is on my property and not listed. The second is in Hamden OH and not listed.) Very easy to find.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in April 1998.
  • 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.
