A New Record . . .

128 vehicles in and out today (Monday). That’s about one every 10 minutes for the 24 hours.

That’s too much like work!

They’re in the process of finishing up the well and big trucks are coming and going hauling out mud and other drilling fluids all day long. If they finish up on schedule then they’ll start tearing down on Wednesday, which is when we’ll move to the new site about 45 miles away.

However we still don’t know the specifics of the move yet, like is our pad ready? Hopefully we’ll know more tomorrow. If what other gate guards have told us works out, we’ll have several days free to relax and maybe drive into San Antonio, before the rig is set up and running at the new site. Certainly hope so, anyway.

Today marks the beginning of our 2nd month gate guarding. We plan on doing this another 3 months or so, before heading up to Celina, OH for Nick Russell’s Eastern Gypsy Rally the first part of September.


Brandi and Lowell sent over some more Landon pics.

Here he is chilling out at Pink Berry. Cool glasses!

And here he is chowing down on Boudin Balls and Ranch Dressing at T-Bone Tom’s in Kemah.

That’s about it for today. IF we stay on schedule our next blog may be from our new site.

Stay tuned!


Thought for the Day:

In most cases, revenge is not a good thing. In other cases, it’s the only thing.

  1. Time off and you want to waste it driving into San Antonio??? Oh Greg, I thought I raised you better than that! Have you learned NOTHING from me?

  2. Tell us more about the well. Once it is drilled does it stay on line and provide crude oi? Do some wells just peter out and are not worth pumping. Curious minds want to know.

    Thanks, Greg. You make every day interesting.

  3. Hey, you should always wine’m ‘n dine’m first.

    Have you no class?

  4. I have a lot of class. It’s just all very low.
