There was an earlier thread about other local firms that make you cringe when you come across their plans, that was today experience.

Pick up the recon package, saw logo of the plan on top and got the cold tingle down my spine, exasperated by the date, knowing the crew that would have been in the field, one of which was a brief colleague, years back (of which I have plenty of stories for another time)

Get to the site and 1st corner recovered:

Compass & tape down the north line, which the wire & blazes seem to meander a bit more than is respresented on their plat, at 1400' hit the east/west stone to find this beauty:

Its been all day & still cant wrap my head around setting a hole in a 50# stone when its resting on top of a 1/2 ton BFR. We'll see how she checks....
Thankfully turned a corner here and am now following different & more reliable foot steps, for the rest of the boundary

Otherwise known as a "sex" stone.

Uh, we don't use the word exacerbate in polite company. What you do with your ex is your business but the rest of us don't need to hear about it.:););)

Our Troop leader in Boy Scouts always had a talk with all us kids before each campout about exacerbating. We all just giggled at the kids that started blushing. 😉

Portable drill holes are real handy to have when you get into a tough survey. You should keep a few in the survey chariot.

BFR? I've not heard that acronym before. Big F***ing Rock, perhaps?

EDUCATION, n. That which discloses to the wise and disguises from the foolish their lack of understanding.

EXPERIENCE, n. The wisdom that enables us to recognize as an undesirable old acquaintance the folly that we have already embraced.

That's why it's also known as a sex stone.

First heard those terms used together by a 60 year-old-plus lady (about 35 years ago) who owned and operated a convenience store and had a BFR in the area between the highway right-of-way and the driveway area. It was big enough to host a small orgy. I had asked her why it was where it was and she told me, "That's my sex stone." I, of course, innocently said, "What????" So she clarified that it was a sex stone because it was a big f***ing rock.

We call them "Indian Love Rocks" down here.

Was always told that's what to do when you are really lost in the woods; because someone is bound to walk by and catch you :scream:

So with modern measurement tools, or a small error in calculations, get your rocks off?

Somebody had to do it..........................................

Precede vs. proceed
To precede is to go before, to be in front of, or to preface.[I] [I]Proceed[/I][/I], by far the more common of the two words, means to go forward, to continue, or to carry on. The words aren’t homophones, but their similarity in sound (and sometimes in meaning) makes them easy to confuse with each other in some contexts.

And when Cavemen tied a rock on the end of a stick to find a mate, was that called a matchmaker?
