That's a job for the Governor. Or the Judge.
Most of the time I wait it out. I stored these just to illustrate the 180 sec fix can be wrong in these hard to get places. I usually let the first shot go untouched until it completes then I follow up with a second shot that I usally stop manually and store when I feel like it.That's basically what we do. Take two-three shots for min 200 seconds, and if they don't validate, try a distance-distance intersection. Takes time, but still worth it.
Very nice!1737 NC / SC boundary surveyors ran a line due west along what they believed to be the 35th parallel. When they hit the old Charleston- Salisbury road they realized they were 12 miles too far south of their target. In 1772 they took a turn north and went around lands granted to the Catawba Indian Nation and then south to the Carawba river.
This stone was set in an 1813 retracement of the 1772 line and marked NC SC AD 1813.
I was too close by not to give the LS a chance to take part in a little history!!View attachment 8536View attachment 8537View attachment 8538View attachment 8539View attachment 8540View attachment 8541
