    Default Old veteran back in the trenches.

    Just wanted to pop in and say hello again. I am a locating veteran of 17 years just back from a five year hiatus into the cable tv world. Just started with USIC after being gone for a while. Pay is good and I hope to stick around awhile.

    In those five years you forgot enough about doing locating that you signed up again. And they say the paint fumes don't damage our brains.

    You aint the only one . Most here know i work for USPS and have watched it destroy itself . But in the last few days I have been offered a job back in the locating field and am taking it . Some may think i am nuts , my sweet wife does , but it is something i know well and hope to turn it into a business of my own doing private locating . Good luck to you .

    I can remember doing a scene out of Gone With the Wind. Shaking my paintstick at the sky shouting 'I'll never paint dirt again!". Yet, here I am. Brain damage.
