My survey chariot and signage.
Dave Lindell asked how I survey out of a Ford Escape, and I told him that I would take a few pictures and post them… so here they are.
This a close up pic of my drivers side door signage. It’s a magnetic sign that I can pull off if I’m somewhere that I don’t want to be noticed. This is in reference to B.L. Hindmans question of advertising on your survey vehicle.
The full view of my survey chariot.
The back of the “survey shortbus”. I don’t have dividers per se, but everything has a place and it fits. I have more than enough stuff for a solo guy.
Same thing with the robot packed up and prism pole broken down.
My assortment of prism poles, my bi-pod, 8lb sledge, digging bar, a few 3′ and 4′ lath, shovel, machete and belt, 1/2″ and 3/4″ Iron Pipes of various lengths. Also intermixed is various lengths of “McMillans” (1/2″ PVC pipe used for witnesses/line/whatever).
My “little stuff” area. Loaded nails, rolls of flagging in use, punches, 4lb hammer, hand tapes, markers, plumb bob, peanut prism, rasp, channel locks, BanTam radios, etc. My tripod fits perfectly, and my Shonstedt is under that in its case.
And then there is my “other stuff” basket/area. Safety vest, rolls of flagging, TP, cones, carry bucket, lots of extra nails in the bin, 100′ fiberglass chain, sunscreen, bug repellent, etc.
It’s not perfect, but I’ve got everything that I need for about 99% of the surveying that I do. And if I need to tote some friends around, it takes me about 5 minutes to shuffle stuff around so that I can put the back seat up.
