Grandpa had been the county surveyor...he and Dad were both engineers...I started out in 2nd grade going out with them on Saturdays...mostly held the poles or carried equipment...and I kept it up throughout high school...my senior year I only had 3 classes the last semester, so I left school at lunch...then I would go surveying with Dad in the afternoon...I am certain he over-paid me! I remember learning so much MATH while doing this and then watching Dad do the drawings afterward...so, when I was in math class, I would recognize things being taught because I had seen these techniques and methods used in real life before learning about them in class!
