    Started in '97. Dropped out for 2 years from '03 to '05

    So 15 actual locating years.

    Started with a pager and a fax machine and 2ft by 4ft paper prints. Paper maps. Those were the days.
    Now I'd be lost without my cellphone, laptop, and TomTom.

    10 years locating all utilities

    an additional 5 years locating electric cable faults - primary, secondary and transmission line.

    Plus 10 years dispatching crews for a power company.

    About 4 years being locate supervisor.



    That's 15 years finding the things underground plus 10 years sending crews to fix things underground and overhead. About 24 years utility industry experiance.

    Not sure if that 10 years of dispatch work counts. We'll have to check with the judge. Wait... who's the judge?
