Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign…… GPS it I must

Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign……  GPS it I must

Always a catchy tune.

I stopped to visit this sign on my way home from teaching a TerraSync/GPS Pathfinder Office class in Wisconsin 3-16-17.

My Geo 7X Sub Foot and Zephry2 antenna wanted a photo opt.

  • I used my WISCOR’s Real-time account inside of TerraSync along with my Verizon Hotspot to get the Geo 7X Sub Foot/TerraSync onto the internet.  I was dialed to 4 inches horizontal within under 2 minutes.
  • Any guesses as to what part of Wisconsin this particular “Seiler Rd” sign is located?  Hint, not far from a city that has the same name of famous bib overalls.
  • Bonus question:  What highway was this intersection at?
  • I will reveal the coordinates after 5 days if there are no correct guesses.

 

 

 

THE LOCATION IS:  Intersection of Hwy 26 and Seiler Rd.

Tim and Gary you we close to the coordinates.  South of Oshkosh and North of Rosendale – Fond Du Lac County, WI.

To be fair, this intersection has had some new construction that may not appear in Google Maps/Earth.  The Road and Stop sign may have moved over time.

There are also newer curbs hiding underneath the snow piles.
