Spot a YETI—And Win It!
GeoEngineers offers expertise in lots of areas in addition to HDD design. Take a look at GeoEngineers’ diverse list of projects here on our website, and you might win a YETI Dry Bag! Keep a look out for hidden “YETI” links as you read about our projects, and click on the first link you find to be entered in a drawing for a YETI Sidekick Dry Bag. This is a special giveaway just for HDD 101 attendees, so use the password “HDD” when prompted once you’ve found a link. Here’s a helpful hint; we hear that these Yetis like to hang out with our friends in the energy and industrial markets. Hunt for them while you learn about some of GeoEngineers’ other services like carbon sequestration support, spill response applications, remote safety and data monitoring, air quality and electrical transmission lines.
