The prospect of finding a survey marker (especially one that Berntsen International made) is always exciting to me! And it was especially so this August when I went benchmark hunting in Walt Disney World. Amidst record-breaking heat (97 degrees) I was able to find 25 markers with my GPS unit. I had downloaded the waypoints for these markers from Patty Winter's Disney Benchmarks website using a program named GSAK.
So, next time you are headed for Walt Disney World or Disneyland, take your GPS unit and go prospecting for these "hidden treasures." You might even get to explain what you are finding to some inquisitive strangers.
