>>oops, Riverside County Surveying

 

You got it Keith, RIV CO SUR, for "Riverside County Surveyor". RIV CO SUR is on all of our monuments and control points around our county, and on our projects as well.

Do you make the brass disk?

Herb

No Herb, that sucker came from a survey supply outfit that specializes in marking monument disks for surveying. Pretty cool eh!:)

For setting monumentation, we will however stamp our own with a steel stamping kit, but for a show piece like this, we like to have it perfect and done professionally.

i got zip when i retired.  i got a phone call, "today is your last day, send in the laptop with your last expense report"

 

and that was it.  they chose the timing.  not even a coffee mug or ream of paper.  nothing.

 

somewhere in my files i have a photo of the survey marker at South Pole in Jan 1994.  brass item with similar engraving.

After 28 years with the company, I got 10 days paid vacation at the company condo on the Big Island at Kona ,and round trip ticket for wife and I and son, and a check for $3K.

It made up for all that free overtime I put in over the years. Like the Old Scotsman I worked for for years said, "They retired me with dignity", I was Happy.

 

Didn't get a marker tho. After that it was "Herb,who?"
