|From 1988 until 1995 I employed several field men or women, never more than two at a time, and most frequently just one. Since mid 1995 I have operated with only myself and Robbie.
|Robbie is a robotic instrument that makes it unnecessary to have human employees. I just have to keep his batteries charged. Along with a laptop, a cell phone, a Ford Explorer and a small office in Shelby I’m equipped for most surveys. On occasion I call on the assistance of Krocka and Associates for GPS or AutoCad drafting services, as the job situation demands.
|I have been married for 30 years, have two kids (married daughter living in Toledo, son-in-law Jake who is my support staff for all things digital, and a son down at Ohio State in Columbus), and one grand-daughter.
