    Very difficult place to locate. It has good weather, so it is full go year round and the sugar sand allows for most utilities to be buried. In my experience other states have less placed in the ground, due to the soil.

    Florida doesn't pay state taxes either thats a raise right there. WhenI was down there about 5 years ago there was a law that said that any new utilities had to be buried because it was a hurricane zone. From waht I have researched the pay is not that great. I was planning a move last year but when I looked at the average pay scale for a locator I backed of my plans. There are some good companies but they were farther down than I wanted to go.
