This morning I left the house alone at 6:30 and headed over to Maple Island Road. It was just getting light enough for me to search for the Sleeper Azimuth since the FFS burned the woods pretty well there. Unfortunately, I was not able to find it. I then headed to the Oswego Swamp which was my primary goal for the day. The road I usually park at now has the plastic signs telling me to not drive down it so I had to walk a little further to get to the edge of the swamp.
This is an interesting road along the edge of the cedars that I walked for a little while.
Once I arrived at the cedars I realized a nightmare was ahead of me. I decided right then and there to bail out and return in the summer when it is dry. It was flooded and the dead cedars had all fallen down. So I headed to the Wading Pines area and searched at a few places. The below photo shows a stone monument that a more recent property owner placed there. This is a corner to Lot 23 of the Oswego tract.
While going through the deeds for the property above, I noticed that in the early to mid 90s the property had some tax issues.
I looked for the below monument a few years ago and as I passed by the area today I checked on it again. It was right there in front of me and told me to look 10 feet away for a stone. Nothing there. So with a few pokes in the ground I hit metal and dug this old pipe up.
