    Smile REALLY could use some help!

    I have been given a chance to move to Hawaii but I have no job lined up yet. I would like to keep locating but I can't seem to find any companies that handle public utilities, just private locate firms come up on the google searches and I really don't want to do the bloodhound thing to much of a headache. If anyone knows of any companies or someplace I can look on line to find what companies are there I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance

    Try this website... Utility Notification Center - Locate Phone Numbers

    It is the one call center website for Hawaii. If they can't help you, nobody can.

    Just watch 'Ice Road Truckers' - that should teach you everything you need to know!

    I was stationed in Hawaii for 8 years. I have looked and have failed as well at discovering anything but private firms there. Hawaii has extremely strict dig laws. They have been trying to build a Highway around the main island of Oahu for decades, but the work is continuously stopped due to archaeologically significant discoveries. Plus, if you are of Caucasian decent, acquiring a job in the private sector in nearly impossible.
    I can think of nothing better than spending my days marking utilities in Paradise. Hawaii is really nice!!!

    They have rigs with automatic transmissions. Now even the girls can drive rigs.

    When I got out of the military there where phasing in the 900 series I think it was. they were phasing out the deuce in a half(around since WWII) and the 5 -ton. They were going to an automatic. Even replacing the old jeep with an automatic hummer. More and more people coming in never have driven a stick. The only ones seemed to be farm boys and girls. Use to be the lower priced trucks and cars had manuals and it was another $1200 for the automatic. With technology and such with hydra-static transmission there is no need for a clutch.

    Unless your battery dies and you need to push start your car.
