What does the state sign say?
A little bit too blurry here...
The video was removed by the uploader. To bad because I'm sure I would have enjoyed it.
My only mentor in NYS was a former DEC surveyor. Traversed for 10 years with a Wild T1AE, 300 foot tape, plumb bob, 2.5 lb. Collins cruiser axe, flagging, and a film canister of tacks. If we set rebar they were driven in with the side of the axe. Never accepted a closure of less than 1/5000. Many were more than 1/10,000. It was common to cut a sapling, sharpen it, and drive it in the ground for a traverse point. It would be tacked and was sighted directly and the slope distance measured from the instrument. I'm sure those surveys are being retraced today and would like to think they are being accepted by today's expert measurers. Time matters.
I no longer use those tools and methods because for my work there are better ones available.
PS: Boundary surveys in steep terrain solo sucks.
I used a Leica robot for a couple years till i started wishing it would get smart and turn on me. Construction staking can wear on a guy and you are never appreciated.
Made a couple more videos this week👍
I made 5 vlogs this week, I think today's might be half way decent👍
