    no Ifindit ......but meeting a guy that ran his own office in this area of the south was interesting to say the least ....you are the only other person that I know that is in SUE . I decided to inquire a bit because I was curious about pay and so forth.....I would have had to moved to Baton Rouge for this to go any further and THAT is out of the question for any amount of money .

    As a rule, SUE locators mark everything, active and abandoned. The entire gambit of utilities from phone to sewer lines.

    Where's the love? We don't call it SUE over on the west coast, but we locate the same crap.

    The only difference would be that i'm in house and only locate for the interests of my company. It sounds like I don't locate a lot but I do my fair share, running the gambit of utilities.... Some that can blow up a little and some that can blow up alot.
