fourteen areas near Twin Eagle Farms
The junction between DE 42 and the unmarked road that Mike mentions is now
labeled Long Ridge Road. The point closest to house #92 is now located in the
NW corner or a dirt-bike/motocross track. Follow the tree-line/fence between
#92 and #176 to the far corner of the track.
The areas east of Twin Eagle Farms are somewhat hard to distinguish and there
may be more areas to the southeast of the road that are just are equally elevated.
I moseyed around in the muddy field for a few minutes.
As Mike and Fred state, the 9 areas near the Webb residence are spread between
wooded and open areas and are hard to distinguish. I visited all of the GPS
points associated with the spots and agree with Mike that the area near the PVC
corner is probably the highest.
I think the northerly points are definitely lower.
one area near Seenytown
As stated by Fred and Mike.
six areas near Hartley
Lady at #206 wasn't home. I did an extended turnabout up her driveway and tied
my shoe outside the car.
uneventful visit to the areas west of Hartley
For the areas north of DE 44 there is a gravel road (looks like a driveways from
the street, but it heads farther back and I didn't discover the terminus; it's
almost a direct extension of Rehak Drrive) just to the east of yellow house #177.
I parked along this lane and had a short stroll to the HPs. At the cul-de-sac
turnabout point there is a house with an extremely voracious dog that I wanted
to avoid, hence the gravel lane.
