6. Truck Full of Markers from Delaware County Pennsylvania
I saw this truck and made a u-turn to take these photos and talk with the men maintaining the markers. They told me several of these markers will be down for a few months. They had not heard of HMdb, so I gave them one of our "business cards", and showed them our phone application. They were enthusiastic about their job and seemed to be pleased that others cared about missing markers.
