    Be careful about what you hear from those Texas Sups. I don't think they will stop blowing smoke just because they are out of state! We do 2 different tel cos and several different gas cos, but for the most part we probably average only 2-3 way locates.
    I might not be as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was !

I met an SM&P sup from Texas today in my area, and it was nice to visit with someone who does multiple companies for each util (i.e. 4 electric cos, 2 phone cos etc). I explained to him that in Northern IL it is the big 4, that's it. A couple cities with big enough populations have their own electric co-ops obviously, and then there's where Ameren / GTE scrounge up some of the business down in like, Livingston county...

    It made me realize that up here in our areas it really won't be too bad - despite what you might think, shovelhead. It could be like our Canadian friend mentioned - many many facils to mark in an area. And while the tri-state area of WI-IL-IN is supposedly tough-ass to locate because the phone lines are so congested, I think if you get enough motivated people out there then things will eventually come around.

    ... And then I woke up.
    I have located 2 to 9 different utilities for over 15 years. 4 is no big deal. You will see. I will also becoming up on the 7th to help train. And to locate.
