    Its the only metal tower thats over the water about 30 ft from the cosway. If you go over the cosway you can see the tower. Its about half way accross.

    There is an object that needs to be picked up, you will know what it is when you get there. Its not private property.

    Once the item is found is it taken and placed at another spot and those gps coordinates posted or do you just log in that you were there and leave it ? TOM

    Gave it a shot this afternoon.

    No sucess.

    Now, I still don't have a GPS but found it on Google Earth(38 34min10.8sec 121 36min44.4sec). Those coordinates put it smack in the middle of the large piece of concrete debris that was left behind with the destruction of the old causway bridge.....dangerous riding in there with the tall grass hiding BIG pieces of concrete.

    I'm also a bike commuter into Sac from Davis. I remember an all metal tower out there....but it's gone now....wierd....but I remember it as being closer to the RR tracks with some kind of generator or something on top.

    I climbed up the concrete towers closer to the tracks but those are way off coord-wise.

    So....I dunno what your mean. Either something has drastically changed or I'm a real blind old guy or I'm reading the coords wrong.

    This also isn't the place to go if you've got allergies. I came back looking like a snowman with all the floaty weed seeds all over me...got wierd looks brushing all this stuff off at the grocery stop.

    Is it still there. If so I will be collecting and transporting it to a new locale come Monday or Tuesday.

    Personally, I think you are being too nice posting pictures and all.
