Can someone verify that these landmarks are correct?

Also, can someone make one with place marks for the 800, 900 and 1000 yard line so I can put something together for the website?

Thanks.

You shouldn't thank me for anything. I'm not sure if that's accurate, which is why I'm requesting confirmation.

Jon, I don't know how to add anything to the map, but you've got the pit area and the entrance marked correctly, although if one uses that entance you have to hump your gear down to the 1,000 yard line from just near the road, because only authorized range vehicles can use that road. The parking area nearest the 1,000 yard line is along that road that comes in from the west, starting about 2/3 of the way to the 116 entrance road. The 1,000 yard line is right in front of where that vehicle is parked that you can see if you zoom way in, at what looks like (and is) a turnaround area. The 900 line is is at the apex of that uneven looking inverted triangle of paths or roads. The 800 yard line is at the southern end of that lighter rectangle of ground. Hope that makes some sense??
