    I used the map on my phone to see where the locations are and now I cannot clear those markers. Damn it.

    Here's one I took a little hike to see. You would have to be real good on a trails bike to get a bike there. Just off the I15 in Vegas.

    Located another one today. Was surprised to find one within an hour of home.

    In a Curtiss Jenny with a 60 kt top speed into a 50kt headwind with 3 miles of visibility I’d say they needed all the help they could get.

    I have been working of late to construct a map showing as many of the Historic Beacon and Arrow locations as I can using a variety of sources on the web.

    Thought it would good to post it here. The map will continue to evolve as I work my way through the sources I am using.
