    Default Gotta love this...

    Does anyone know how many times I heard this weekend "I've been locating 14 years and never had an at-fault damage."? I'm gonna have to call BS on this statement!

    anyone who tells you they been locating for 14 years is probably old or a liar.
    most of these locating companies exploded on the scene after 1996. no one knew what the hell a locator was back then

    Well this old fart started locating in 1989 with Beyers Locating. Liked working for them and I will never claim to have gone damage free certainly have had my share of them. I feel any one going 14 yrs without a damage isn't locating. I like locating I think the boss's want to make it hard to do. They think they need to bully the locators and treat them like dirt. I know it's a numbers game to them but you treat people with respect you will get a positive response. I have seen my share of boss's come and go and I'm still locating and and enjoying it.

    Well, I've had my share of damages -approximalely 1 in 16,000 ove a 9 year career - about 1 every 15 months -and 0 HP's. However, the rumor is with SMP/USIC/CLS that isn't going to be good enough any longer. Stay tuned for more info to come as I receive it.
    I might not be as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was !
