Found it at 13:00, 25 December 2002. Found it as described and in good condition. Was suprised I haven't seen this one before. I drive by here often and the cap is easily seen from the road.
WGS84 coordinates found by 5 minute occupation with 7 strong satellites and 2 WAAS satellites. Suprisingly, the elevation found by my Magellan was 1222 feet - only 5.9 feet lower than the 1227.9 foot elevation posted on the NGS data sheet.
