;D Guess I get to be the first to post from out here in Nome... Found the lean to rock cache today, great fun, but quite BUGGY. Oh well, thats summer! I love it! We don't have many caches or cachers out this way, so I kick around looking for the benchmarks too, kinda cool, some haven't been logged in many years! Hope everyones having a warm, active summer. Enjoy! iio
Hey iio - what are some of the benchmarks you've logged? I have to talk to you about doing 'volunteer recoveries' for the NGS out there - cool stuff! Do you have the PID numbers for some of the ones you've found around Nome? I haven't been out west there since I started geocaching...
Ammocanitarian/Earthcachenarian, but tolerant of other Ways to GeoSmiley enhancement...
Benchmark hunting - an exercise in accuracy, or best of all a challenging histo-archaeological time-travel geo-puzzle. Both versions let you reach out and touch a datum point on the Earth's surface, measured across three dimensions as well as the planet's gravity and magnetic fields.
Hey Northwes, I'll have to check my logs at geocache.com for the benchmarks I've found. Think I did take pics of all my finds so far though. Let me know of any you are interested in- see if I can find'em. Alot of the old ones that were close to the beach are gone due to storms I believe. But I have found quite a few from the 40's, when the military was up here. Always a bummer to find one out in the country, & when I go to log it- its not on the list... thats only happened a couple times though.

NorthWes: Thanks for that background image - I lost track of mine on this new computer - gonna be handy for the powerpoint on IG!
