    Default Another Vacation

    I took another vacation to the coast. I took some pictures. I hope you enjoy them.

    The phone box is an example of what the sea spray does to the utility boxes.

    I used to work in the Monterey Bay area. It's one of the beautiful places on earth. Where were these taken? Looks like Northern CA/ Oregon.

    These were taken in Bandon, Oregon and Port Orford Oregon. This is where I want to move to... someday.

    Steve, love the pictures. Just like me, whenever I visit another city I look at marks, peds ect. I see you are the same way. Slipped the ped in there.

    I will be to St. Louis next weekend and for marks.

    Even when I'm not at work, I follow pole dips, peds, and always check out locate marks when I see them.

    The picture of the phone ped rusting away is something I see hundreds of times a day, there are even electric meter bases in worse sahpe all over the place as well...

    It's like they say, once a locator, always a locator....

    I always catch myself scanning for buried utilities and where the gas meter is when I visit friends or family's homes. Sometimes as I'm heading in I'll catch myself getting happy cause they have aerial electric or phone and then wander why.

    I get excited about aerial services as well. Means one or two less things I have to mark, and then I realize "wait a damn minute....I'm not at work here..."
