    We don't give up on them there's just another more interesting project to do, for more money.

    I have always heard there is another life out there that is not remotely connected with the military/industrial complex. But I thought they were just stories after 30 years of being in or working as a civilian engineer. When I retire I just want to work part time in a building that has windows--I've had no windows for 25 years.

    Smile Surveyor...

    I am a licensed surveyour in the State of Ohio. Have been in this profession for 35 years plus. Just love being outdoors. When I first started was in New Port Richey, Fla. and we had a four man crew, with the party chief carrying a pistol with snake shot, for rattlers and cotton mouths, etc. At first that used to bother me being straight from Nam but I saw he knew what he was doing.

    Have been in Ohio since '72 and sometimes would run into wild dogs in woods and would just shew them away with a stick. Now a days, there are coyote in the woods and always carry one of my pistols, especially during hunting season because I just don't know what kind of threat may run into.

    All in all, I just want to stay in the field till I can't do it anymore.

    I don't blame you....surveying was the most fun I've had working. I enjoyed every minute of it. I always said I'd go back to it if I won the lotto or something.

    Interesting thread, lots of variety here

    They lock me in a room full of children and pay me for it. I know you're jealous, but if you need help with you science or math homework, ask away.:D

    Lots of OFF and long pants. Poison ivy was my biggest problem. Bugs really weren't. I bought usually a bottle of Technu per week. If you ever have poison ivy/oak/sumac, that stuff is a godsend.
