Sit Down & They Will Come

You’ve heard the quote, “Build it and they will come”, from the movie Field of Dreams?  My motto here in the oil field is, “Sit down and they will come.”  It never fails.  I can be up doing chores around the house and no vehicles come…but the minute (and I’m not kidding!) I sit down…ding … Continue reading »

Christmas in the Oil Patch

The Pied Piper of Yarborough?!

In talking with Randy, one of our Company men, it sounds like we should be at this location until shortly after the first of the year.  Sounds good to us! They are currently in the process of drilling 3 wells (eventually 21) here…but each well will be on it’s own pad.  They’re drilling ‘chalk’ wells … Continue reading »

Woohoo! Another gate!

We got a call from Shawn early Friday evening telling us that a position at a gate was opening up on Sunday morning and he wanted us to go check it out to make sure that we’d fit.  We took a ride over on Saturday morning to check out the location.  It’ll be a bit … Continue reading »

Got a Gate…

We got a call from Shawn at 7:20 Monday morning letting us know that he need us on a day gate immediately.  It just so happens that the gate was one that we worked January for a couple of weeks (out of our coach) and then in March Michael worked there a couple of times … Continue reading »
