    Default Cone tossing

    So, I hate putting my cones out so much that I came up with an interesting way to do it that involves technique, so it's less of something I dread to do.

    Take the cone outta the back ya truck, and sling it over the entire truck with your right hand, your left should be pointing with all your fingers towards the front of the truck.(Make sure nobody is in front of your truck before you do this lol) I can get the cone to land perfectly about 5 times outta 10 but I'm getting better. It's even more fun putting it up the same way, because it's easier to land a cone in the back of a truck slinging it from the front than it is to land a cone perfectly sitting the right way from the back of the truck, on the ground.

    shrug. just putting cones out the normal way bores me

    You must of been locating for quite along time. It's funny the things that we find amusing. Being chased by dogs, stung by bees, or sinking in mud isn't fun anymore, cone tossing is the new thing to keep us on our toes.

    I usually try to get 'ringers' on my cone-holder post (front bumper mount) from about 15ft or so. Somehow I suspect a customer would report us for shenanigans if we were throwing cones up and over the truck.. lol

    You must have the decent base-weighted cones if you can land em flat tossed over the truck !

    Hmm.. this gives me an idea.. how about set some 'fun time' (does that exist anymore) at the company site for a competition cone-throw (distance, accuracy ?) ??

    yahoo apparently I have created a new competition for the locate rodeo!

    but every time I toss em I do worry a little bit about the camera. Man I already got my office laughing I set my shit off last monday when a bee got up in the truck with me. I normally don't mind bees, but put a bee in a small space with me and get us up to 50 mph, I have to take care of the situation...screw the stupid camera I had to GET OUT...lol

    All I can say is even with them take a deep breath and hope to God you can get done before you have to breathe again as for some they are acually clean and nice but if the site is mostly "meheco" infested look out
