ADVENTURES IN THE FIELD

Every surveyor has stories about their adventures in the field, whether it’s bees, bears or snakes. Jeffrey Turner recently shared a few of his in "What it Takes to Bee a Good Land Surveyor" in a recent POB Magazine article. Click Here if you would like to reminisce about a few of your own experiences.
