While on a 2-day trip this week to Eastern Oregon with my wife to soak in the hot springs, I’ve had time to reflect on work, priorities and life in general. My wife volunteers for NODA (No One Dies Alone) and she has to make a point to schedule self-care for herself. This short trip has relaxed us both and it reinvigorates us to get back into the daily grind.
There were a few squabbles among members at SurveyorConnect this week while we were away. It reminded me of a time when I used to let things like that bother me and I would react accordingly. I have since grown as a person and have learned to relax, thanks to my wife’s work requirements and the fact that I get to participate. 🙂
What do you do to relax and get your mind off of work? I’d love to get your thoughts here.

This work is droning
Nate shares a video of a fixed-wing drone that he particularly likes for obtaining site photos. But others seem to think Google Earth is good enough for that. What say you?
It seems some surveyors can’t even look at poison oak without getting it while others can skate right through it without any trouble. BStrand wonders about the best remedy for treatment and gets several helpful responses.
Member “robots” has spent a lot of personal time developing a toolkit for Geodimeter 400/500/4000/600, and Trimble 5500/5600 instruments. His original post was 7 months ago, but he’s still following up to answer questions today! Get more info and a link to his GitHub repo.
A long-time member has a pretty strong stance regarding people who don’t sharpen their chainsaws. Some of the follow-up replies are from folks who don’t even bother with using a chainsaw. Is a machete good enough?
