    Default I would punch this man in the face.

    I'm sorry if this is one of you but...

    Dude needs to check his facts. That Ranger is 2wd, and definitely does not have off-road suspension. If he had flags in there, it would be squatting low enough that he'd scrape most driveways. And I don't care how organized the back of his truck looks there, once he drives around for 5 minutes, it'll be a heaping mess.

    Come on Fall, give the guy a break. It's probably his first REAL job and he is taking pride in the fact he doesn't know any better. I'm sure he's looking forward to moving out of his parents basement (or attic) and into a shitty studio apartment. He's probably looking forward to getting laid for the first time..................................things are looking up for this guy.

    Then he will get fired, lose his apartment, company truck and be forced to move back in with his parents.........................then he will understand the truth.

    The Ford Ranger is offered with a 4WD option. I would have to look closer to see if the one in the video is so equipped but not worth the effort.

    Some contract locate firms buy a few 4WD's for snow or when needed for specific sites, the one's that I am aware of no longer practice this type of inventory of 4WD vehicles. I did work at one firm that had a small 4WD in each office. I was put into it for running emergencies during heavy snows when the office was shut down.

    This whole video is a spoof towards USIC.


    I think it's funny to watch because it is full of sarcasm. The problem will come when this locator's midget-minded management-types get a load of this guy's post. (These types have their ways of finding out who does what) And, just like FiberBoy's fate years ago, there will be "Hell to Pay.........."

    So.... Just from what I see, I have to call BS on it being a 4wd. As for it being a "Spoof"... it better be. No real locator would put this on you tube. None of the equipment or the truck has any signs of wear. Even when I got new rigs, my equipment showed signs of how much I used it. I love the metal detector. Does USIC actually give those out as standard Equipment?

    I should toss a video out here about what a horrible locator needs;

    1) beat up 92 ford ranger with utility bed
    2) everything is covered in dust
    3) Too busy to organize anything
    4) Empties all over the place
    5) 6 cases of paint
    6) drops of paint and wear on the reciever as well as the paint gun.
    7) Cones from the local county road department
    8)..... To be continued

    I looked at the video and it seems too plain. There is a bunch of stuff missing. The transmitter is missing. There is no equipment for entering manholes. Assuming they are doing phone where ever he is. He is stocked up on a lot of yellow paint and some orange. Yellow and orange flags as well. So, maybe he isn't doing phone. And I gotta agree with him... those are some damn fine cones.

    It does seem a little like a spoof, but he may be thinking what I was thinking when I first started locating. I thought I had the best job that ever was. I felt that way for several years. I don't know if I would have made a video, but he seems all jacked up.

    Not that I know much about it, but is this something someone on the "12-step" program would be required to do? I'm just saying ....
    I might not be as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was !
