Land Surveyor Community Forum

Hello everyone.....

It has been a while since my last visit to the site. As you well know we lost a dear friend last year, Mr. Skip Farrow. I have spent all this time avoiding logging into the site for personal and honestly selfish reasons. For those members whom where not lucky enough or never had the honor of meeting Skip, you really missed out. During the darkest and saddest point in my life he and I would talk for hours. Everything from what we ate for breakfast to our personal lives, our children and yes even you Justin. The stories he would tell me about the different escapades in his life. We would share personal experiences, relationship advice and we always ended our conversations discussing the impact of finding our faith in the Lord.

Many nights Justin, Skip and I would be involved in three-way call discussing this very website. The brain child of Justin with the help of his father working together father and son. Many others participated as well, but if not for these two gentlemen, we would not be connecting and sharing information with fellow surveying professionals around the world.

Justin and Skip wanted to share information, bring people together but, I was doing the opposite. After his death I could not bring myself to visiting the site. While flying here to Hurricane, Utah to attend Trimble 3D Paving Methods Boot Camp, I started thinking about my old friend and realized I was disrespecting his memory. So I felt it was time to get back in touch and participate.

Working with Sitech South Mississippi and partnered with Trimble I have a bunch of information coming soon.
