Why do you need to find a BM? As people have pointed out there's plenty out there, especially if you count PLCC's as well. Are we doing your surveying homework for you? ;)
No, I'm doing the homework, you're just helping me not waste time digging around the woods for hours :D I've already spent a couple hours unsuccessfully searching for ones in wide open areas. Amazing how hard it is to find places with no powerlines or radio towers.

Anyway, I'm good now, the ones in this area should be sufficient, they aren't at the far end of a trail but they are if I walk into the woods and walk out to them, the terrain and tree cover should fit the bill there too

Have you tried the NOAA site map with satellite view?

that's where i got the data for my maps...
Oh, so the map you referenced is a map you created. I didn't pick that up from the original post. Okey dokey, then.
