So this week I was out surveying a rural property and looked up to see this yard sign.

Tractor Lat/Long sign
Tractor with Latitude, Longitude & Elevation

So what would you expect a Surveyor to do? 

You got it, put the GPS unit next to it and check the results!

My results:

45° 13’ 17.23569” N

122° 28’ 15.14109” W

871.69 ft NAVD 88

So by my calculations this sign should be moved

N 16° 55’ 18″ W a distance of 1982.09 ft

It was set by a previous land owner so no clue on how established or how long ago for methods used

Just another fun day out in the field surveying!  Got to love it & I do!
