Point of Beginning

Two-Wheel Survey Truck

April 26, 2004
An inventive way to deal with California's traffic.

In San Diego County where I've been practicing land surveying for over 12 years, traffic has gotten so bad I finally decided to do something about it.

I got this old Honda motorcycle, bought a wire feed welder at Harbor Freight, learned how to weld aluminum, got some square aluminum tubing from local scrap yard, welded up a rack, and, bingo. Now I split lanes through traffic on I-5 and I-15 no problem. It's great for simple topo jobs or tieing out found monuments, etc. Needless to say I turn heads driving down the road.
