You Might be a Land Surveyor If…

You might be a Land Surveyor if you spend your vacations spotting surveying monuments and sending pictures back to the office. Locating the corners everywhere just gets in the blood, I suspect, and you can’t turn that off even when taking a little well-deserved R & R.

While family and friends are enjoying the sights above street level (cathedrals, sunsets, eagles, and such), the surveyor is prone to abrupt stops in the middle of the pavement (like Pokemon Go players, way ahead of their time)!  After traveling with a surveyor, you’ll find yourself seeing caps, monuments, even an 80d galvanized nail pinning down a tiny piece of orange flagging, everywhere you go!

If your co-workers are coming back from vacations with scenic postcards, instead of pictures like these, they are definitely not surveyors!
