First day surveying!

Today we got ourselves ready, took cold weather gear, survival gear, survey gear, communications gear, and more gear than I can type, and took two snowmobiles and a survival sled out across the ice.  We surveyed 9 more of our stake locations, each occupation for between 15 and 30 minutes.  Between the wait time and the travel time between stakes, it added up to a long-ish day...
A typical stake. We pulled the survival sled up next to the stake, made sure it was plumb (not tilted, which could throw off the measurement) and placed our antenna.  Then it was time to wait 15-20 minutes.  If I were a napper, I'd have redone the GPS acronym to Great Places to Sleep. 

All in all, a very successful day!
