    Default Might as well introduce myself before i stalk every one on the forum

    I locate for a small company in northwest, wisconsin. Its a great company to work for and im going into my second season locating. My boss trained me in, he hates training but i believe he is one of the best to learn from. I locate phone, fiber, catv and power. Mostly spent time doing project for the first three months now im running tickets and have my own area which is mostly power.
    Just got married last June to none other then the bosses daughter.lol I wouldnt normally like to work for family but this setup works and i dont have anyone over my shoulder so its almost like i work for myself.
    anyway thought i would say hi.... so hi!!!

    Greetings Tom! Welcome to the Cable Vine! I have been to Wisconsin only four times in my life. To me, there is no other place in America where the drinking establishments per capita is so high! It didn't matter what town or city I visited in Wisconsin, there are more places to buy a drink than buy gas for my car! My kind of state! Through my NASCAR experiences, I have gotten to know (and love as family) many drinkers, I mean citizens, of the small community of Clear Lake, Wisconsin. A SUPER bunch of people!

    Apparently you don't mind exposure to the world of locating if you are truly using your real name. I know the feeling. My handle and modus operandi has made me known to those who control my livelihood at USIC. That's a decision I made many years ago when I became a member of our fantastic locator's forum and I'm okay with that.

    Still, I need to be very careful what I post. I make a concerted effort to refrain posting anything that may be appear as a direct attack to my superiors and peers. That said, I have posted things I wish I could take back but can't. If you are Tom Edward, just be careful what you say and who you attack here. There are rat bastards that linger in the background of the Cable Vine that never reveal themselves but constantly monitor what is posted and send their findings up the food chain.


    More than once I have been asked by my superiors to explain myself about my posts and private messages to members on the'Vine............................... just sayin'.

    That said, I welcome your membership to the Cable Vine, have fun here, learn from fellow locators and members! Please post often!

    clear lake is just a half hour up the road and yes many drinking establishments. In my hometown Chetek we have many places to get a drink. Liberty fest on the 4th of july can be fun if any likes the lake and beach parties. As for Jayc's question we got married a month after i started and ide been seeing her since she graduated hs 2 years prior. She was the top of her class, great morals, a bombshell, and into me for some reason so i couldnt pass her up!
