jeffrey s. almquist replied to James Dorsey's discussion Corner or monument?
"This would all depend on how well he did his homework. It would also depend on what he found in the field, and how accurate it was from his information. There is always that "not so fine line" if the monument gets to be too far off, then…"

Started pipeline surveying 1978

I started green, as a rodman in Grand Junction, Colo. surveying 36" natural gas pipeline in 1978. I quickly advanced to insrumentman in 6 months. My first instrument was a Paragon A & E transit. We got our distance w a chain. (at that time we didn't have anything to "roll it up" w and learned to lay it out and collect in a loop and twist it into a smaller loop!)! That was great! Hell, it was snowing a ton! The first distance meter we got in 1979 was a Hewlitt Packard distance meter w about 10 knobs across it that each one had to be "fine tuned" for it to get the distance! The rodman had to hold it still a long time for a distance!! We advanced to a theotolite that was still read w a magnifying glass (the eye) like the Paragon!!  Well, all for now.
