Every time I read them I think to myself, fair enough but one of them just rubs me the wrong way.
It is section 14, E, 2b, and regarding descriptions and it states as follows.
"All controlling monuments, noting their physical description, and whether found,
set or replaced."
Now why in the hell would I do that?
In my opinion if a monument has another number on it I found it and if it has mine on it I either set it or found it.
At the end of the day if a monument has my number on it I own the responsibility, who really cares if I set or found it. Also if I am calling out other monuments in my description I still own the responsibility.
If I would change something about these rules that would be the one.
I am curious how many of you actually make those notations in a perfectly good description? All it does is clutter it up for the layman and also I believe it will create ambiguity for some green horn that still has a hard time properly writing one.
I would love to hear some thoughts on this one.
Peace out surveyors, make it a great week.
