    Just for all the Viners who have to put up with all the cold and snow. Here in Florida it will be a balmy 84 degrees tomorrow. Our lows are running about 64 degrees. Don't mean to rub it in but I only want to see that snow and that cold air when on vacation.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all the Viners out there. Hope everyone has a safe weekend. For the folks on-call, I hope you have a quiet day and nite.

    I got family in Florida, East and West coast, that keeps asking me to relocate there. Do you get to carry sidearms to fend of the gators? If I can lcoate with a .44 on my hip I am on my way.

    Thank you all and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Owned for 4 years now with Father who owns Environmental / Excavation company. New England Subsurface Imaging, LLC. Excuse the website. In the process of having one professionally done. Don't get much in the way of business thru the site anyway. Used to use GPR while in USMC for SOC.. weapons and hidden bunkers, underground evac tunnels, mic's in sandwalls and concrete walls. Worked for another Private Util company for 5 years before starting mine. Going real well in a bad economy I must say. All Radiodetection and all GSSI. Will be looking to hire an experienced locator soon WITH EXPERIENCE doing concrete imaging..<-- MUST.

    And yes the cold is coming real quick. Can't stand it myself. Just winterized my sportbikes...sigh..

    wow man, thats awesome you're doing well in a bad economy. i must say for myself that even though oklahoma has come thru the recession better off than alot of other states, i still kow alot of people without jobs. even though the big locate companies like usic have alot wrong with them i must say i'm thankful for a job that does so well even in recession. i'm sure most of us are thankful for that this year.

    it sounds like you would probably have some pretty interesting stories about your time in the USMC, anything in particular stand out in your mind, anytime overseas?
