22-Jan-2000 -- PiKapp Legacies Scout Team Log. Members Present: Paul Sanders, Marty Todd, Wesley Sanders, Taylor Todd.

Upon roll call at 9:00 am this morning the Executive Directors of the PI Kapp Legacies Scout Team (Paul and Marty) decided after an open door meeting to create a permanent marker for 34° 82° . After completing construction of the marker the scout team loaded its navigational aids -- 3 maps 1 compass and one Magellan GPS 300 and proceeded from Augusta, Georgia, to their destination in an unmarked car.

We arrived at Mt. Creek road and began montoring the GPS coordinates closely. It became apparent that our destination was located on private property belonging to a Mrs. Gladys Outz. After explaining what we were doing Mrs. Outz granted the scout team permission to enter her property and find our destination.

We found an entrance to a corn field 200 yds down the road from Mrs. Outz home, it was there that we parked and began our trek across the corn field. It was about 28 degrees and quite chilly with a cold northeastern wind gusting across the semi-frozen rain soaked field. We found our destination in a small patch of hardwoods bordering a creek that was between Mrs. Outz home and the corn field. We soon found out that our destination had been marked previously ... by a deer that had rubbed a small cedar tree with his antlers permanently marking the spot 8 feet west of the exact coordinates (pretty darn good without a GPS!)
