This is not a full report since previous missives by Messrs Schwartz, Lobdell,
and Wedekind are good. Getting this county remapped might be a service to the group.
four points west of Hartly: Started with the obligatory pull-up into the driveway
of #206 Crystal. Opened the door. Touched the ground. Left. The other area
south of DE 44 was behind a green house and was an IBI (ignore by inspection).
For the two areas north of DE 44, drive back just past the intersection of DE 44
and Crystal and go north onto North Street. At the end, park and walk into the
field going northeast. The larger area was subtle, although there was some rise
and I can see why Fred like it. The small area to the northeast was declared an IBI.
two points east of Hartly: Went up the driveway to #635, parked and bushwhacked
to behind the house. The area closer to DE 44 looked just as high. Continued
closer to the farm as mentioned and declared the smaller, western point to be an IBI.
one area south0southwest of Seeneytown: Parked at the obvious embankment on
Judith Road. The embankment scoped out as high as the point to the east,
although I could see prominence. IBI.
14 areas near Twin Eagle Farms: The point near "F" in Farms scoped out as
higher than the other four in the area. It was also fairly obvious (for this area).
For the areas to the north off of Holletts Corner Road, I felt the two
areas north of the road were inconsequential as viewed from the road and could
be ignored. Like everyone else, I also drove into the driveway of #4076 to get
permission but nobody was home. Eventually went down the driveway to #4198,
which I presume is the Webb farm. Gravel road seemed to go pretty close to the
highest thing in the area. Scoping and binoculars led me to discount the areas
farther to the east and southeast.
For those who need it, if you continue east on Holletts Corner Road you will
eventually (5 miles?) get to Blackbird State Forest. Free camping.
