Surveying GPS/GNSS, level and rod

Survey Says

Think life at the office is rough. Try confronting snakes, booby traps and villains on a daily basis. We aren't talking about an Indiana Jones movie. This is a quick glimpse into a land surveyor's regular work day. Dodging rolling rocks, decoding legal descriptions and confronting angry neighbors is just part of the trade. There are days that you will be attacked by tick bombs and other days where the view is priceless. Every day holds a new adventure that will test the limits of your comfort level. This can only mean one thing, you are having the time of your life.

Do you crave the excitement but aren't committed to changing professions? Instead of pretending to fend off a crazed wild animal (aka the office copier) you might find it more enjoyable to check out the true tales of a land surveyor while you sit comfortably in your office chair. These are true tales of what really happens out in the work field. Some content may leave you feeling nauseated or horrorstruck. You will find some of the tales rather bizarre, but rest assured the stories you are about to read are all true.

Warning: Read at your own risk.
