    Let me show you ugly

    No not a picture of me

    What you find digging trees out of tree lines
    Things that are supposed to be 50 feet away

    Of course when they where buried in the ground years ago and all the people associated with the burying of said Item either have Alzheimers, are Dead, or unreachable, and the people who have the current info have it third or fourth hand.

    Yes its a gas line, from the well to the house, owner was on vacation, had to find the shutoff at the well, let me tell you gas line unions are NOT cheap!!!! 2 of them was $74.10 and made in China

    Ouch! The expense and lost time are a bummer, but it could have been even uglier.

    With a title like this I was wondering how you got my picture.

    Same as Larry said, round here it is Miss Dig or a huge fine.

    I'm willing to bet they wouldn't have known where it was, no wire buried with so a metal detector would be out. Back when that was installed if it was run on private property from your own well they where not documented well
