Worst Survey Day in Weeks

What a crappy day. I was staking out something called a compensation-line, for the tram. This tram goes through the University of Ulm and they don’t want the electricity to disturb and fine tune instruments. Therefore, they’re compensating for the extra power with this compensations line. It was so annoying, I got back to the office at like 5:00pm because the guys had left too much concrete in the trough, and I had to stake the same points out twice, every 2 meters for like 150 meters—alone. I hate staking stuff out robotically, and this was the worst. The instrument lost lock of the prism so much! The snow got in the way, everything got in the way, and the instrument was set up startling this stupid trog. Awuhhg. Gross. After this crap day a colleague called it quits for legit two weeks.
