Earl F. Henderson, PLS
, ended his career as a "young salt"/professional sailor when he started his survey career with a brief term of employment at Greenehorne & O'Mara in Annapolis, MD. He then gratefully spent the next nine years in the colloquial system of surveying in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains at Hurt & Proffitt, Inc. in Lynchburg, VA while building a timberframe home on his wife's family farm. In 1999 he and his wife decided to move to Boulder, CO and the PLSS. After five years of employment at Drexel, Barrell & Co. he started his own business, Zenith Land Surveying,Inc. (ZLS) in 2004. He worked happily as a “solo surveyor” until recently when he began to expand the business. He has been a staff writer for Professional Surveyor Magazine since 2004 writing fictional stories under the byline “The Humor in Surveying” and “Gigglebytes”, although most of those contributions were prior to 2010. He was active in and on the Board of the CCPS until 2011 when Gov. John Hickenlooper saw fit to appoint him to the State Board of Licensure for Architects, Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors (AES Board) where he currently serves as the Board Chair. He has a regular column in Sideshots
where he discusses the intricacies of the Colorado State Statutes and Board Rules pertaining to land surveying. Some land surveyors even agree with his ideas. Earl and the ZLS staff specialize in the art of retracement land surveying.
