    Default Most congested area photos.

    Let's see who can get the photos of the most congested areas. Here's one for now I have on my computer right now. I'll find some more congested areas and post here.


    I'll add my snow picture just because I like it. It's so nice to see paint on such fresh snow.

    Default Congested areas

    I do not have a picture but have a "pork Chop" that I locate from time to time with:

    2 H.P. gas mains
    1 IP gas main
    Traffic
    Primary power
    Telephone Duct line
    street light
    water
    drainage all under one little pork chop and I have to locate them all. ARRGGGHHH!!!!

    P.S. That is some locate you got there my friend. Did you wear your snowshoes?

    The contractor actually crossed all 5 telephone packages with a water service right about where the front tire of the van is. I stopped by when I saw the 12" vac truck out there.

    The contractor told me he was surprised to see 5 separate packages(two of them were on top of each other). He thought I just added a bunch of marks so he couldn't use a bucket.

    Not very congested, but the most congested photo I have on hand at the moment....

    Oh no not a trailer park. I only have one trailer park and I just cringe every time I get a ticket in there.

    I swear the devil himself ran the utilities in trailer parks.

    Are you sure you weren't just overthinking things a little? Like maybe a forced signal or a ghost signal here or there? That's brutal, all of these photos so far are brutal. I'd hate to be a contractor wanting to dig on any one of them.

    No forced or ghost signals there...Electric was in first, then phone then tv.

    I isloated every line there, and this was just for a darn tv drop.

    I have at least 12 trailer parks in my area, and most of them have anywhere from 10 to 50 lots. The largest one I have is over 200 lots, but locating in there is sweet, since the utilities all got together and got their crap straight before digging.

    The main thing I like about the older parks is alot of the phone and tv drops are disconnected, and we do not locate disconnected utilities....

    Hey there GBOY I couldn't help but notice there was not a cone out behind your truck in the picture. Just a thought next time you post a photo with your truck showing!

    There should be a cone there, alway is. Probably just the angle. I'm sure if I find more pictures of that locate you'd see my cone.

    Speaking of cones.... I've gotten harassed several times from higher up when my photos were audited and there were no cones around my truck.

    I don't know about you guys, but the majority of my locates are longer , and normally I'll mark the job, load up my gear (cones included), rap off a couple of photos, drive a little ways up the road, jump out take a few photos, drive up the road, take a few photos, etc.

    I'll be damned if I'm going to drag cones out everytime I stop my truck to snap a couple of pics. You know what I'm saying?

    I agree. If only out of the truck for a second to take a picture that ok. Just try not to include your truck
