San Antonio Wrap Up and Moving Day

Our stay at Ft. Sam came to an end today.  We always enjoy our time here as we get plenty of rest and an equal amount of chores done. This past week Michael finally got all the bugaboos cleaned off the front cap.  He’d wanted to get it done since we got here and he … Continue reading »

Low Fuel Prices Means Out of Work Gate Guards

Monday 11/2 Michael spent a little time this morning cleaning underneath the overhang and the front cap of the coach.  Both areas get dirty when we travel.  The under part of the overhang collects road dirt/mud from the back tires of the truck and the front cap gets the splatter of bugs. Our neighbor, Mary, … Continue reading »

Torn…

We’ve had a quiet couple of days not doing a whole lot or going anywhere.  Since We’ve been to San Antonio several times now sight-seeing hasn’t been on our agenda at all. It rained for a good while on Saturday so I took advantage of the rainy day and worked on laundry and household chores … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Oklahoma City To Glen Rose, Texas

We could have driven down I-35 but decided to take I44 south to US 281 – much more scenic.  It was about the same distance but probably took a bit longer than I-35….but maybe not as I-35 went right through Fort Worth. After a tight squeeze getting out of our site at Tinker AFB FamCamp … Continue reading »

Knock, Knock…

We got a heads up from a friend of ours that we might be getting a gate today.  We hadn’t heard anything from Gate Guard Services by noon so we decided to head into town to get some groceries and have lunch together. About 5 minutes before we were going to leave there was a … Continue reading »

Scrub A Dub Dub

It’s been pretty quiet since the workover rig left on Sunday.  We had two small crews here during the workover.  The workover crew consisted of 5 guys.  Then we also had the flow testing crew – a day crew of 6 guys and a night crew of 6 guys.  Now we just have the flow … Continue reading »

Faithful Readers, Ranch Gates & Texas Bar-B-Q

Since we’re fairly sure that we will be in this general area for a while we wanted to get Michael’s VA appeal letter sent off and hopefully get the ball rolling…finally.  He’d had the letter written and ready to go when we were in Florida but we didn’t want to send it off until we … Continue reading »

Waiting, Waiting, Waiting….

This morning we met one of our neighbors, Bob, who’s been working for GGS the past 3 winters.  He’s been here since last Saturday waiting for a gate and is supposed to get a gate tomorrow.  We chatted for quite a while and he gave us lots of tips and answered any questions we had. He also … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Corpus Christi, TX To Whitsett, TX

We started our day off by getting finger printed.  We had appointments for 9:20 and 10:20, arrived about 9:00 and were leaving the office at 9:33!  The finger printing is done electronically so it was pretty darn easy and no mess! From there we went over to the GGS office to hand Patty the receipts … Continue reading »

Gate Guarding Prep

We slept with the slides closed last night to reduce the chance of losing a slide awning and also to reduce the noise level.  Michael was up at 5:30 for some ungodly reason and I was up at my normal 7:00ish.  We only opened the off door side so that we could get into the … Continue reading »
