(visited by Tom Arneson)

15-May-2012 -- I was on a hunt for 2 high value Geovexilla when I saw I was near this DC, so I detoured to try for it.

My approach was on a gravel road called 655th Street, which runs on the east-west quarter line of Section 9. I turned about and parked my car at a field entrance. The field was planted with corn, but the crop was very young. The plants were only 8 to 10 cm tall, so it was no problem to walk into the field without damaging the crop. My car was parked about 135 m from the DC. I walked between the rows, until I was within 80 m. Since I had a long trip to reach my other targets, and was under time constraints, I took the photos and headed on. I notice that some previous visitors seem to have scored from the road.
