Shopping, Leftovers and An Unwelcome Visitor

Friday 11/28  Traffic has been quite manageable with just  57 vehicles in and out on  Thursday and  55 on Friday.  We also have traffic coming and going to the central facility but are not required to log them in and out but we do go to the door and wave them on as acknowledgement. We … Continue reading »

Can of Spam

Wednesday 11/26 We found when we got here that the previous gate guards hadn’t been logging the rig crew in or out so it looked like we didn’t have hardly anyone down on the pad.  The crew slowly started coming out to go into town for various reasons so we have been ‘re-teaching’ them to … Continue reading »

New Gate, New Friends

We were up about 6:00 am.  I took time to relax in my recliner and ‘surf’.  I had most everything in the house ready to go and Michael had just a few things outside to do so that we were ready to pull out when Austin got the the yard shortly after 8:00 am. The 13 mile … Continue reading »

New Gate on the Horizon

We were preparing to go into town to run a few errands and Austin stopped by to tell us he had a gate for us.  When he first told us it would be today, as soon as we were ready to go but that changed in the span of about 10 minutes.  We’ll be leaving … Continue reading »

Chinese & Refrigerator Repair

Thursday 11/20 Well gosh darn it!  I’d planned to sleep in this morning but my internal ‘gate guard’ clock went off at 5:18 am.  I put it on ‘snooze’ but it didn’t do any good and I finally got up shortly after 6:00 am.  Thankfully, I slept good and didn’t hear any phantom ‘Ding, Dings’ … Continue reading »

That’s A Wrap!

Tuesday 11/18 Today we had a new company man come in as the old one went on days off.  He thought that if everything went according to plan he’d be releasing us tomorrow.  He was only here an hour or so to check on the flowback crew and then left again. You might remember that … Continue reading »

Slip, Sliddin’ Away…

Sunday 11/18 We enjoyed a very quiet day with just 23 vehicles entering the gate and 24 going out.  That was fine with us as we worked on cleaning up the DVR.  We’d had quite a few shows accumulating and taking up space so it was high time to get some of them watched. The … Continue reading »

Daisy’s Back!

Thursday 11/13 We had a nice, quiet night.  The bell didn’t ring until 4:30 am and I slept until 6:30 am!  Or at least stayed in bed until then.  I woke up about 4:15 am and had a hard to going back to sleep but enjoyed lying in the nice warm bed anyway. Michael 1 … Continue reading »
