Re: [RC] surveyor's marking tape - RDCARRIE

The cheapest place I've seen the tape is in catalogs that sell forestry 
supplies.  Two good ones are Forestry Suppliers and Ben Meadows (both also have 
websites).  You generally get a bit of a price break if you buy 12 or more 
rolls 
of a given color.  It's called "flagging" in the catalogs.  I work for the 
Forest Service and use all colors.  The hot pink shows up great (probably the 
best).  Orange is also good.  Yellow is deceptively hard to see if there are 
lots 
of hardwood leaves (even green ones) where you're hanging it (should work 
pretty well with evergreen trees, though).  Dark blue is also hard to see.  Red 
is pretty good.  And like you said, combining a color with a piece of white 
makes it even better.
