I find Anything

That's what i do and i take a lot of pride in what i do.

In the past few weeks i have found valves under chip seal roads, hidden under a hot tub, next to a controller for another system, a leak with voodoo sticks, a few irrigation leaks and a couple of pool leaks.

Yesterday was a valve that a couple of irrigators could not find with their 521's and a leak at the same job, all in about 1.5 hrs.

Today i had to track down my mare, 12 solid hrs. but i found her.

I know my equipment well, i have studied my craft and practice relentlessly. I find sh*t and that's what i do.

THEN WHY CAN I NEVER FIND MY FREAKING COFFEE CUP?

My keys are an everyday occurance for me. One time I was looking for something for at least 5 min come to find out it was in my hand. :/ . ... scared to think how I will be when I'm old

That was my horse, which is a lot like a dog only bigger and harder to teach to sit.
After 12 hrs yes. Paid off well enough though, darn near dark so i put her up in a ladys pen for the night. The lady sent me home with a plate of dinner to boot. WIN WIN
