    Default Hello from Australia

    Hey guys, i'm a Utility Locator in Sydney, Australia working for a company called 'The Vac Group' we specialise in Non-Destructive Excavation and Utility Surveys, i'm currently undergoing training to become a qualified Surveyor in order to aid my abilities to map underground services. I found this forum and thought it would be a great way to touch base with other locators and share ideas.

    Welcome to the Vine 1990. There is a wealth of knowledge here . I understand down under you have different standards, methods and conditions. Read the good threads (Knowledgeable) and you will see what we here in the states have to put up with. All CONTRACT locate companies are the same here. Some of the guy's on here have a pretty good gig going. Some of us just do our job. Some go above and some way Below.

    WELCOME 1990

    Hello Down Under!

    Our previous manager is down there, working as a music teacher so I hear.

    Look for Raul Torres in Perth. Plays horn in local bands and composes music.

    I don't actually have much contact with Neil and Ben as they're very busy guys. But from what I understand they have been making a few trips to the states!

    Vac-U-Digga is a great company however that is our Non-Destructive Digging side of the company I work for the sister company 'Earth Spy.' As Ben and Neil are based in Brisbane and i'm in Sydney I rarely communicate with them, but they have to be admired for what they've accomplished since Vac Group started and they're both nice guys.
