I did a bunch of research and found some surveys in the area thanks to the guys at GDAC and using the official plat I calc'd everything and went right to town.
I arrived at the site and promptly found a couple of monuments and got started. The rear corners landed in an alley so I had to bail the block wall and do some recon.
I found all of the monuments and some adjoiners and everything checked real nice. I also located the walls and they even checked really well and everyone was happy.
Now I have spoken quite often about things that a person sees in the field and frankly I have come to a point where nothing surprises me and this particular experience lacked surprise but absolutely increased my amazement and I mean a WTF!! Holy S*&T!! kind of amazement. People can definitely be very wrong at many levels.
Below are some pic's I snapped while on site accompanied by a brief narrative of each thing.
1) How cool is this? When is the last time you saw a Sears Chain Link Fence?
I love this old stuff and really enjoy seeing it. It's a throw back to a simpler time. Kind of makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Yes that's right I said it. I think every bum within a mile radius of this alley must dump here. All along my clients wall looks like this.
I was so thankful that the property corner landed about 5' East of that bent rebar. I dug around it with arms fully extended with a long nose shovel. Fortunantly no one pooped on it.
I will tell you this boys and girls, this amazed me and made me laugh. Where else can a person enter an alley, grab some porn and take a dump within 200 feet?
I wonder if they use the honor system on returns to the library cart??
