cool stuff. my dad was a land surveyor before i was born and ive always liked talking to him about it. he has the same leica tripod in the garage, just much older, and a lot of other 80s and 90s equipment


please stop abusing that drill and buy an angle grinder those bearings are made for axial loads not radial ones if you don't stop i'll be forced to call the authorities


Nice! Do you have and pics of old equipment?
Call the authorities, I don't give a FUCK.


Old pics from me surveying. Will transfer some of the pics itt later.


too bad that auroch didn't gore you…
might have saved some drill bearings.

File: 1692911555524.jpg (6.12 MB, 4160x3120, 4:3, 20230823_084052.jpg)

Ye, most companies have marine lead acid batteries, because they charge the base all day.
>how much do you get paid
$46k per year now, I'll be getting a raise at the end of my 60 day probation back to what I was making at the other company I worked for to $50k. That's entrance level pay scale, which I'm sure varies state to state most party chiefs make $62k - $73k per year. that doesn't include 401k, or benefits health, vision, dental, short/long term, etc You can also obtain an rpls registered professional land surveyor or an fpls federal professional land surveyor loicense, then you start making bux. I imagine the pay scale is different by region, North/South or union/nonunion, all that shit.
>how hard is it to get into
Same as anything I'd imagine, it helps to know someone. Rally depends on how much building is being done in yer area budy. Put it like this, I have no hs degree ged and 2 year tech school aviation maintenence, mostly construction back ground, I've done all kinds of stuff tho, hospitality, music gigs, security, etc and had no prior knowledge of how to survey. I grasped it faster than anyone at my old company had seen anyone grasp it, these guys were 20+ year career surveyors. as in very rairly had a job other than surveying So I rose up the ranks pretty quick. If you're not an idiot you could be running a crew in 5 years, depending. I was running crews after 8 months.
Old, abandon farm equipment in a tree line next to a field I came across the other day.


youre getting paid a little less than me but i rally want to go do more outdoors stuff instead of standing at a bench welding shit all day. though yah like you said region does play a part, i make like ~$52k/year right now without counting overtime and im just barely middle class where i live but i can go one state over and live like a fuckin king at the same salary but i dont wanna move
>it helps to know someone
what if idk any surveyors? guess i could ask my brother he does siding work on new construction so hes gotta have some contacts
>Rally depends on how much building is being done in yer area budy
thankfully there has been nonstop building in my area (or close enough at least) for like 2 decades and it doesnt seem to show any signs of stopping even with this shit ass economy. one town out here i lived in for awhile went from a mostly forested place people just passed through to get to the city to big ass suburb/shopping district and theyre still making condos and expanding neighborhoods
>all that other shit
i dont typically have a hard time grasping most things especially math because i enjoy it so im not worried too much about that. what does having a crew entail tho? do you have to micromanage some fuckers or do you just delegate some shit and they run off to do what they do? i'd gladly attempt to lead a team but if i gotta breathe down someones neck i'll wind up starting a fight through sheer autism because like any sperg im obsessed with my standards


>what if idk any surveyors
Walking into the office with a resume in hand is a big thing. They are still mostly old school, meet irl, hand shake kinda people. Ask to talk to the field coordinator.
>non stop building
That's good, try not to get stuck on a construction crew, unless you want to be on new build sites all fucking day listening to bullshit foreman trying to weasle more work out of you. I like topographical surveys because you're inna woods all day. Lots of cool stuff out there.
>what does having a crew entail tho? do you have to micromanage some fuckers or do you just delegate some shit and they run off to do what they do?
You're responsible for what the crew does if you're a party chief. i.e. you tell your iman instrument operator to do xyz task and he fucks up its your fault. In theory you'll be with the crew all day, so they will be following your lead. In a perfect world your iman and rodman will have an idea of what to do, so you won't have to follow them around all day. Some companies only have 2 man crews, some 3 depends on the instruments and equipment they have


>Walking into the office with a resume in hand is a big thing. They are still mostly old school, meet irl, hand shake kinda people. Ask to talk to the field coordinator.
looked around and the closest surveyor office is like an hour away fug. i'll keep this in mind tho ive never been turned down for a job after being interviewed by people like that
>try not to get stuck on a construction crew, unless you want to be on new build sites all fucking day listening to bullshit foreman trying to weasle more work out of you
i dont mind that so much because im not afraid to tell someone to eat shit (politely ofc) when i think theyre trying to steal my time
>I like topographical surveys because you're inna woods all day. Lots of cool stuff out there
this is what i rally wanna do idc if i had to take a slight pay cut at first
>2 or 3 man crews
i can manage that its when i gotta keep track of like 8+ bozos that problems arise. is there always a crew or are there topographical surveyors that work alone? im guessing thered be safety reasons for having at least 2 people in that situation


> is there always a crew or are there topographical surveyors that work alone? im guessing thered be safety reasons for having at least 2 people in that situation
If you're doing topos, there should be at least 2 people. Yes it's for safety reasons. The terrain can be treacherous, cliffs, bluffs, thick woods and of course wild life. Idk what region you live in, where I am there are bobcats, mountain lions, coyotes, wild boar, rattle snakes, some gators several types of venomous sneks tbh. So imagine where dudder lives, there's fucking panthers, bears, pythons, alligators, all manner of bullshit. In the northwest, grizzlies, etc. I mean even deer or elk can fugg you up p gud if they wanted. Some places are OK with you carrying a piece protecting yourself beyond a machete. All in all an encounter with wild life usually ends well for everyone. As for the rest of whT you said, sounds like you're the guy for the job. If you find yourself around a construction site not full of mexicans ask someone. Usually some body can point you towards the surveyors, or can tell you the company name at least. Good luck bud.


>not full of mexicans
is this where the worker exploitation happens or…?


It's where everything happens


im slightly too far north for gators but yah we got all that other shit too i was thinking about shit like rattlesnake bites when i mentioned safety. im a little ways away from mountains but theres still plenty of hidden ravines and shit everywhere in the woods
>not full of mexicans
a needle in a haystack situation here unfortunately but like i said my bro might know someone even if he uses spics himself
its certainly where out of square framing and poorly slapped together roofing happens

Get a pair of these guards for snek. Don't skimp out, get a good pair. They are well worth the money, plus have the added benefit of keeping brush, chiggers, and hitch hiker burrs off your lower legs. Only draw back I've encountered is, they get your legs p fuggin sweaty because they can get real hot in the summer.


idgaf about sweat no more welding in a 100+ degree shop has made me immune to physical discomforts but not the incredible monotonous boredom
god i want to leave this FUCKING JOB i shoulda gotten into tig welding when i had the chance that shit is way less gay than what im doing now. pays more too but now im done with all welding fuck it im talking to my brother asap to see if he knows any surveyors looking for help
i think i'll get a set of those just for weed h'wackin my lawn those little cunts get me even if I'm wearing jeans


just come to the west coast and work with me at the shipyard
we dont pay our welders great but theres a lot of variety- and we train our welders in house
we've got some pretty talented guys. 20 pass fillet weld sorta stuff that come out looking great
does get pretty dirty tho. also all the burned marine paint has got to be cancer inducing, i reckon

Stopped reading there.
<pic related


lolno dude they pay welders fuckin phenomenally on my coast so even if i wanted to stick with this shit id just move a couple hours towards the ocean.
though like i said i dont wanna move, i got my current house right before interest rates skyrocketed and im not planning on buying/renting another one when my mortgage is like a quarter of the average rent price right now. im like the only one i know thats still able to save money without having to slash a whole bunch of luxuries because of this
plus i do NOT typically get along with people from the west coast, maybe youre cool idk but holy fuck so many west coast people ive encountered had a smug faggot aura about them that made me grit my teeth like nothing else


>smug faggot aura
ya i agree.
we'd probly get along fine. everyone here has a pretty similiar sense of humor
i worked with a fresh out of school guy from Bend, Oregon and i wanted to strangle that faggot because he just exuded smug elitist overconfidence
then he got cucked by his gf after she started fucking like 5 other guys at her startup that were carbon copies of him and he quit lel


>convincing you to move to the west coast the post
theres enough fags over there for you to get your rocks off with already. dont try to swindle people into moving there to participate in your faggotry you double nigger


well im sure theres people id get along with in sweden too but im not about to ignore the fact its full of faggots and niggers
>got cucked by multiple other smug bitchbois
lel indeed hopefully that was a rough enough wake up call that it humbled him a bit and hes less of a faggot now sometimes those types do learn


tell me what to do again and i'll rape you bitch
>hopefully that was a rough enough wake up call that it humbled him a bit
doubt it tbh


>I'll rape you
Proof you're an aids ridden turbo faggot from the west coast. When will the big one come and sink you faggots into the ocean?


your body, MY choice.


well then itll just keep happening until he wises up
idk what happens to people like that that prevents them from learning from experience. like >we're all more or less brainwashed in the same way from kindergarten all the way to graduation (college or high school) in this country so its not like they undergo some unique form of mental abuse in school. must be higher concentrations of something in the air/water in certain areas that produces that sort of behavior like frogs turning gay type shit


Unironically, gen A and Z are completely mindbroken
very few of them will be breaking the conditioning. Like bezmenov said, there's a fundamental difference on how they see reality


theyre gonna hit the drugs really hard. america is spiritually dead even in (especially in) small communities, kids are bored and theres nothing bigger to latch on to. meth/fent are real cheap nowadays and keeps getting cheaper. govt doesnt to anything to fix the problem just hands junkies welfare and opens up a couple methadone clinics. in a way im glad i dont have kids cuz shit is fucked and keeps getting worse.

This is something you might find yourself doing if you do construction. It's called __monitoring__. Basically you check a bunch of mag nails you've set to make sure their elevation and horizontal distances are with in tolerances they shouldn't move more that a few thousandths, our tolerance is a total of two hundreths, if the points deviate too far it means the ground is sinking and the hole will cave in. You check manholes and water valves too. Anything that's a permanent fixture surrounding the site.


can i check female holes tho

dream fuckn job spro


is austin as much of a fag shithole as everyone says it is


Yes and no. It's certainly not weird anymore. Everything these ironic mustache having faggots came here to see and experience has either long since died, or has been systematically eradicated by those same nigger faggots who wanted to experience it in the first place. Then they fag the place up with the same shitty politics and niggardry despite being crackers that caused them to flee what ever shit hole they left from to begin with. They've made the cost of rent so fucking high I can't realistically afford a house, and I make 50k/year base hourly. not including ot there hasn't been a swim-able amount of water in the green belt in almost 3 years. I mean who would have thought? The city is built on a fucking aquifer, and when I concrete foundation the whole place up for trustafarians so they can spend daddy's money on over priced housing 1400/month is the lowest you can find for a 650 sq ft apt here in a sketched out neighborhood full of bums, junkies, and wanna be ghetto mother fuckers the rain which is minimal at best has no where to go ex eot into the storm drains, rather than refill the aquifer. Now that double nigger musk wants to put his stupid fucking magnet train or what-ever-the-fuck it is underground. Hummm let's see, bore into a limestone stone aquifer under a city which is known for flash floods when it rains, ? Profit, what could possibly go wrong amirite? I guess I'm not really making it look all that good huh? There's still some really good people here, though few far and in-between. og austinites the only austinites who like what this city has turned into were too retarded,or rich to give a fuck to begin with, so naturally they can't be bothered now, except when someone calls them on their unwarranted self importance. which does not happen __nearly__ as much as it needs to I've only lived here for 10 years inb4 cali and the city is unrecognizable to me sometimes. There are a very few original venues left, that still host local musicians. However any bird brain with a guitar and an over priced apartment on riverside who's lived here for 1 year thinks they are a fucking local the joke when I moved here was: "10 years, 1 of which was spent in prison and these fucks think they are a texan!" I'll just stop there for now.

Tl;dr austin is an over priced hellhole with a parking lot of a freeway which causes aneurysm inducing traffic across the city because they never learned how to infrastructure until it was too late. There are still some cool things, you really have to want to find them though.


why did you go to prison


I didn't, I could have typed that better.
It was a joke among austinites up until about 2017 that, "anyone who's done a year in the pen and lived in Texas for 10 years thinks they are one of us now".
Currently and vapid cunt, or soy-brained faggot who lives here for a year and has been to 6th street and broken spoke thinks they are "such an austinite, like its so totally cool here" even though they fail to grasp they are the ones ruining everything they wanted to be a part of here.
