You did what?
So last week, I had to set one last point to complete a boundary survey on which I was working. The control point from which I was going to set the monument was 9.82 feet away, so I whipped out my Lufkin 100 foot Chrome Clad Super Highway chain and laid it out to set the point. My assistant looked kind of funny at me and said, “I’ve never used a chain before.” I just laughed and told him, “Don’t worry. Just hold the chain flat down on the Control Point with the 9 foot mark on dead center of the cap.” As I was getting good line, I noticed that the chain was just touching the leg of the tripod, and I said, “Wow! A beer leg!” Now I really received a funny look. I said, “Never mind”, and I bought him a beer after lunch. When was the last time y’all experienced a beer leg?
