    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?

    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
