What a Girl Really Wants

A folding metric ruler, of course.  Thanks to my mom for the early birthday present!

I’m curious to see how this one holds up next to the wooden engineer’s rulers with the metal joints.

  1. I’ve only used the other kind you mention. They’re definitely helpful when drawing plan maps.
    I haven’t really updated my dig kit in a while, since it’s all survey these days. I’m trying to find a good, durable pair of gloves that fits and don’t cost 30 bucks. I guess I might also need to shell out for a new compass (since the one I found in the work truck probably has another owner).
    It’s all about clothes. I finally ponied up some cash for a good quality, lightweight rain jacket since I hate my poncho. I’ll be buying a half dozen or so long sleeve wicking shirts and some steel toe cowboy-style work boots soon too, for Oklahoma.

  2. I just tried to order a metric folding rule and they’re backordered from just about every place I looked at. I can’t imagine that there are a lot of other fields that use metric folding rules in the US. Must be the beginning of the field season.
