I wore my xlt-20 gear for several hours last night inside the house, trying to get used to it.

I listened to every flowing pipe I could find

very interesting how it changes the way i usually expect to hear things.

One of the few times I'm glad no one asked for pics.

I don't care how you look, the other day I used my leak detector to pin down direction to a lost valve.

I used the fisher in conjunction with every armada product I own to locate those four missing valves in Weed. Epic adventure in locating Rhett.

I tend to use any tools and methods (no matter how silly they look or sound) to find my targets. I've found every target I've ever searched for. I'm pretty lucky at finding things Rhett and between developing solid game plans, owning enough quality equipment and years of experience I feel confidant when I walk onto a site. That means a lot.

One thing I have to say is, BE PROFESSIONAL, it speaks loudly.

Btw. For the last 30 years I've been searching for a specific target which I found while doing a leak job the third of last month. Been inseparable ever since.
