This is a surveyor's version of Take Your Daughter to Work Day. In 2003, Jimmy Byrum was training his daughter Elyse (12) in the art and science of property surveying. He let her hack her way in through the bush in Carmichael, Calif., to find a precious pipe. According to Elyse, surveying is cool, but she would rather be an FBI agent.
