  • Axe, Charleston...hmm.  I do remember laying ground gps control for new aerial photography (20,000 feet flights) for the entire state of SC a few years ago.  I was responsible for the Southern 1/2 of the state and my partner was responsible for the Northern 1/2.  I planned the entire mission with the exception of the request from my partner that he get the North part because he wanted to visit his daughter in Virginia. We drew the line between our missions from Charleston, Northwest to somewhere East of  Greenville.  That meant that he got Myrtle Beach and I got Hilton Head for recreational hiatus, which was cool for me, but what wasn't so cool was the July weather.  100 degrees? yup.  Humidity? 120% - I was dripping every time I left the truck to make a 20-minute static reading.  Overall, a very enlightening experience - oh speaking of light, I almost forgot that while driving at a mere 65mph a freak wind blew the bubbles right off the top of the truck, yeah, hanging and bouncing off the paint job on the  side door.  Oh well,  I survived and instead of being dropped by helicopter soon thereafter on an island just off the coast of Louisiana, which I was totally looking forward to doing,  I watched the news as the hurricane that we were worried would spoil the mission really did spoil it.  I never saw that island.  It may no longer exist, thanks to Katrina.  Another mission survived and another day in the life of a Land Surveyor.  There is no such thing as a typical day in this profession.

    Peace,

  • I like the ingenuity behind the niche market! I have cut many lines through the Florida jungle. I have also been outbid because of the land clearing estimate, but that was 10 years ago. Now there isn't any work and I am glad to be retired, although the circumstances kind of suck. Good luck!
