Observations

Postby Mr. Smith » Wed Dec 12, 2018 8:11 am

Well I have some bad news for some poor surveyor down south. Coming home from one of my quarterly trips to the zoo (southern California), I saw the unmistakable yellow of the full size Schonstedt Locater probably a GA-52Cx.
The location was near Orange County, I think, where Interstate 5 is all shifting lanes and chaos. Traffic was 50 mph to 0 mph over and over.
Anyway to my left was the tool, the box portion was pulverized with only the rear bulkhead in tack with the two dials still in place, the tube end was badly flattened. I could not stop to help, the herd was in a galloping mode at least for the next 2000 yards.

Again someone down south has one less Schonstedt Locater .

Sorry.

Could be a Black Oak, that's what I thought.
My guess was the tag was brass.
Found no record about the tag but aluminum tags
(historically) are not used here.

Could have been a BLM person with alum tags, see also
the k tag in place.

I see similar tags all the time on the UCD campus. They like to inventory everything, including trees.
