Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 50 degrees cloudy mist windy this morning burning off to partly cloudy 65 degrees.

One truck came in around noon to be unloaded and no one came, turns out the truck was scheduled in to the well site a day early. After Bonnie got up I went into Pleasanton for drinking water and shopping. In the two pictures you can notice the head is up with the counter weight down and the reverse in the second picture.

The down picture
"Rolling Thunder" that is what I call it. There is another ranch access here at the end of our road basically a two driveway choice at the end of the road, we are guarding this gate and the other ranch is unguarded and there is a cattle guard. So when the trucks come for that ranch the only reason to slow is the cattle guard "or not". The empty water and crude oil tankers that chouse not to slow make a lot of racket going over the cattle guard, and this is magnified when in bed sleeping of just getting up. Empty the tank rattles like a drum along with the running gear and the trucks engine exhaust. These trucks hauling water and crude oil out come at any time during the day or night. There are seven wells on the other ranch in addition to the six on our ranch.

I took a ride to the well close to Buster and it is just a pumping, the flame in the back is burning off poison gas.
