Ascent Trip Report

Another beautiful-sunny-warm day driving the back roads and County Highpointing in the corn fields of Ohio, especially when one is armed with a Bob Schwab TR .... not much note-taking necessary.
I followed Bob's directions to all of the 5 Areas, all very subtle and nothing really obvious, his TR still applies. I made sure to stomp each area in fairly dry fields, I don't have much to add except to add the following information for Area 1 & 2.

Marsha was racking the back yard as we pulled into the driveway, they bought this place 38 years ago, the house built in 1840 is always requiring work, so they are always busy. They love living in the country.
She has been told that her cousin's house "The Nelson's" on CR U is the highest point in the County and that her place is second highest (this is in line with Bob's reporting).

She allowed me to walk around, "If you don't mind walking in the mud".
I walked the corn field east 250 yards to a Property-Line Wooden Post and chose my Area 2 spot 30 yards to the southeast, GPS 41.47580,-84.24297.

We also found no one home at the Nelson's home on CR U (Area 4), I took the liberty to walk its circumference.
