For today, the main objective of the visit to the HQ as a team was "Going HQ 2019". Before we entered the hallowed halls of the HQ, we searched a few jars of the HQGT series, which was completed after the visit. At 10.00 clock it was time and we got insights behind the scenes. The guide was very interesting and as icing on the cake there were still TB's as a gift.
After that, we half ceased Seattle. Here also the first benchmark was found. For lunch we visited a great brewery near the HQ. All in all it was a wonderful day, in a very nice city.

Many thanks to all owners for laying and maintaining the individual cache. Mysterie, Earthcache, Tradi, Benchmark, WIG or Virtual.

THANKS FOR THIS CACHE AND SEE YOU SOON IN THE FOREST

photoBM @ Gas Work Park

Saw it while gathering the letters for a quiz cache.

Spotted this BM in Gas Works Park, along Lake Union. Its condition is good but eventual situation looks iffy, because the aggregate surface it's set into seems to have sunk from its surroundings. What a nice view, though!

During our trip we visited some federal states, many national parks, entlose and wonderful nature. And of course some of the oldest and most beautiful geocaches. This of course included the pilgrimage site of all geocachers. We are proud to have been there, especially with our great troops. We thank all members, Ownern and peers. The our journey an epic quest made.

Thanks Stage_Worm we were able to visit these rare benchmark.

Our first benchmark find. We were with our mom, DiMonkey. In looking at the list, we realized that there are several different benchmarks in the park. Will need to log them wheb we go up to look for Gasworks SCrabble. Today we just collected the information so we could sit down and figure out the coordinates.

Found this one while working out Gasworks Scrabble. This is my first benchmark find. A great way to start the new year.

Found this benchmark while looking for the Gasworks Scrabble cache. I see the previous finder took a nice picture of it.

Found this one near the end of our run. It was just under the surface of the water.

Picked up several benchmarks while hunting the Can You Say Adobe cache. This is a really cool park and a fine place for a stroll. We walked right to this one. It has a great view of Lake Union.

Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1977 by NOS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL OCEAN SERVICE 1977 (RBM) THE STATION IS LOCATED IN SEATTLE, ON THE NORTH SHORE OF LAKE UNION AND IN GAS WORKS PARK. THE STATION IS A NATIONAL OCEAN SURVEY DISK, STAMPED---SAG 1977---CEMENTED INTO A DRILL HOLE IN A SLAB OF CONCRETE, 38 FEET SOUTH OF THE SOUTH EDGE OF THE ASPHALT FOOTPATH AROUND THE PARK, 3.9 FEET NORTHEAST OF THE SOUTHWESTERNMOST CORNER OF THE CONCRETE BULKHEAD THAT PROTECTS THE SOUTH SHORE OF THE PARK, 2.0 FEET NORTHWEST OF AN OLD 3-FOOT HIGH CONCRETE FOUNDATION AND ABOUT 2 FEET HIGHER THAN THE NORMAL LEVEL OF THE LAKE. HEIGHT OF THE SIGNAL WAS 1.5 METERS.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in December 1991.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.)
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
