Unless you are a construction monkey every job is different.
I personally take something new away from every job.
So there I am last week in Tucson at U of A breaking down a block that the Marriott sits on.
First I have to tell you that the ground view at that college is fantastic. It took me back to a much simpler and more intoxicated time in my life where the only things that were important was beer and girls. Oh yeah!!!
Flashing to present day I was surveying the block and getting ready to go on the Marriott's roof.
All was going well thanks to AZ Cors and the Pima County GIS site. I had my control and was ready.
I got up on the roof just in time for AZ Cors to take a dump due to Leica maintenance so I had to go to plan B which was go back down and set up the base.
Upon doing so I proceeded to have the crappiest GPS day I have had in years. I got tied into the ground control, went back up on that roof and what should have taken 20 minutes took 2 hours.
I was in hell. There I am above everything with a wide open sky with the wackiest constellation I have ever seen. Ugh!!
Every shot seemed to take forever so I went to plan C. I made a detailed sketch, measured everything up and shot the bare minimum.
When I got off that roof and walked outside the first thing I saw was a beautiful girl and all that BS frustration instantly left. I even got a smile out of her :)
Life can be good in the field even when the technology hands you a pile of shit. It's remarkable what a pretty face will do to my mind.
