I got a call from Leslie on Friday, July 30th, saying that I was referred to her by Joe Denton, local Minelab detector distributer. She needed to find a couple of property markers to settle a dispute with her Home Owners Association and wanted to know if I could help. I asked a couple of questions, got her address and agreed to meet her at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
I got to her house and we met in the driveway. We walked around the house to the backyard and she showed me the area in dispute. Leslie had everything ready; she had her plat survey, set up an umbrella to protect me from the sun, and some ice cold water. Surprisingly, there were no obstacles, like power lines, cable lines, metal fences or sprinkler lines in the area. And better yet, the end of one of the corner markers was sticking out of the ground. With that, it was just a matter of measuring off the distances between the markers from the plat. I used my Gold Bug 2 metal detector to find the rebar pole, dug a hole and pinpointed the actual poles. Leslie drove steel rods in the ground, sticking up about 6-8 inches, next to the markers. The two markers in question were found and marked, leaving Leslie a happy lady.
Leslie – Glad I could help.
