Stopped by tonight with Eleanor so she could show me the closest one to her house. Cool!

Stopped by for my first benchmark. It's like starting caching all over again .

Benchmark recovered as described in good condition. Photo 1 shows the actual benchmark. Photo 2 shows the reference mark 2 disk across the street.

The disk photoed below is not the correct disk, as it is an NGS disk and is a reference mark (RM 2). Also, the 1984 stamping shows it's a reset disk for the original RM 2 disk, now probably missing. Find the main disk to claim the FIND.

Found easily on a walk around the neighborhood.

Website coordinates were correct. Benchmark is in excellent shape and easy to spot in a quiet residential area. This is our first benchmark.
