There was no sign of a survey marker anywhere near the posted coordinates when we arrived at this quiet neighbourhood park just before noon today. After scuffing our feet around a bit, checking the sidewalks and half-heartedly digging at a nearby hole in the ground, we decided to take a lunch break and enjoy a picnic in the park.
After lunch, Mr. GeoK pulled out all the stops - armed with trowel and magnetic compass, he systematically checked a 3 meter radius around the spot where our GPSr zero'd out. Sure enough, the compass did the trick and after digging down a couple inches through the grass and dirt, we find a nice old brass cap! E-mail already sent. This was a good hunt.
