Long Description:
Benchmark Data Sheet description is accurate, less the reference to the fence post and the garden fence. Also, I would say it's about a foot higher than the highway. Should one wish to visit it, it can be easily seen from the east driveway of the 2 story farmhouse (which belongs to me) on my property line about 20 ft to the immediate east. It can probably be seen just driving by, if you know what you're looking for.
