Just set up control and transferred an elevation for an EC to a couple of lots in a subdivision.  While I was collecting some static to post process, I went around and found what I could to locate tomorrow.  On one side, I found the type of light duty fence post I used at one period in time as a witness stake and found the corner at the base, but I did not have a copy of the survey I did with me.

I've looked through the GIS I keep for jobs I've done and it is not placed in there.  I've file searched using the subdivision name, lot numbers, past owners, and even possible realtors that I might have for some odd reason used as the file name.  Usually I use the naming convention [sub name}_{lot#}.  So it should be simple to find, but I'm coming up with nothing.

When I found the light duty fence post, I almost felt like I remembered surveying some of those lots.  Now I'm not so sure.  Either I did and it is not indexed properly or I didn't but convinced myself that I did.

I hate not having kept it properly indexed if that is the case, but more so; I hate a weird memory that may or may not be correct!

I hate when that happens.  Too many years and too many jobs.  I'm working a project currently that is one block east of a job I did over 30 years ago.  Absolutely nothing connected with that job rings a bell in my memory banks.  Nothing.  I was there.  I did it. I have all of the information in my job file showing what I did.  Still, nothing.

Normally, I can remember all sorts of minor details surrounding a job.  Not that one.
