A business trip led me again in this area. This time I was not too wild on geocaching and instead wanted to focus on benchmarks as we don't have these in Germany.

The descriptions below are accurate, although the building does not read "Daily Record" but "Church of Living Grace" (see picture). A small wooden pole marked the station.

Found by description and coodinates. KV6914 painted on the street definitely helps. Whoever backed over the curb and onto the lawn missed it!

Found as described. Turning from Jefferson Road into the Daily Record building (at 800 Jefferson Rd.), the mark will be on the right side of the driveway at the intersection.

Across the street is another mark, stamped "1400 1980," which does not appear to be in either the NGS or Geocaching databases.

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.
