Surveyor Bio:
I started out working with my dad at age 8 tailing chain, Then as I got older and could see over the bushes I started cutting brush lines. Working with older people, I picked it up quick and at age 17 after grad. high school I found myself with a crew fulltime and have been out there ever since. Here in Louisiana every day brings something different . I worked for my dad to the day He passed in 62. I couldn't see wasting every thing he had built so my sister and I just kept going. Now at 51 the scars and bars have taken there toll But I just walk a little slower and have now stopped trying to jump the creeks instead I just wade the water and keep going while the crew keeps looking back to see if I've made it up the other side yet. All in all it's been a blast. My main question is what happened to the comrodary between surveyors, we use to be a tight group, now evryone seems scared to venture out of thier own little circle. Does any one else sense this?
