Greetings, friend!

Oh my, we’re already in the second half of March. Can you believe it?

However, this is good news — it’s almost time to start the Surveyor Connect 2023 Calendar Photo Contest! Last year was our first attempt at an official calendar that consisted of member-submitted photos and it turned out great.

One thing I learned about last year’s contest is that I needed to start it earlier in the year. Starting the contest in March, as spring approaches, gives you a head’s up so you can get ready for the upcoming sunny season and grab some great photos.

So start snapping those photos and get ready to submit them to our 2023 Calendar Photo Contest! One grand prize winner and 11 honorable mentions will get some SurveyorThreads swag and be featured in our 2023 Surveyor Connect Calendar which goes on sale in late October or early November.

The contest opens at 12:01am on Monday, March 21, 2022 and ends at midnight on Friday, October 14, 2022. You can submit as many photos as you want, as often as you want.

You no copy, right?

Can you copyright survey maps?

Grantor-Grantee index

How do you find older documents in a grantor-grantee type of recording system? Sometimes the Assessor’s office will be of help but in this case they weren’t.

Tornado alley

Just had a first today. First time retracing a property after a tornado leveled the neighborhood.

Picture this

I want to get crews a field camera, and not have to deal with pics from phones.

Shoulda coulda woulda

Coming up in today’s episode of Shoulda Had It Surveyed…

Stoned on the side of the road 📷

Driving along Mason Dixon Rd. about 0.8 mi west of I-81, I realized that I should be near a Mason Dixon stone. Looking around and sure enough there it is. It doesn’t get enough love.

👋 Before you go

Do you have a knack for teaching or mentoring others in this wonderful profession? I’m currently working on an online learning system specifically for surveyors — and I could use a few good instructors. 🙂

The best part? You will be able to create your own online classes and get paid every time sometimes signs up. You set your own pricing (you could even have free courses if you just want to give back).

It’s still a work-in-progress, but I’m getting all my ducks in a row now. If you are interested in becoming an instructor, drop me a line at [email protected].

Thank you!

P.S. If you enjoy The Cut Sheet or Surveyor Connect, your support is very much appreciated!

Happy traversing,
