Dilly, Texas - Buster’s Gate 50 Degrees and cloudy, rain to 72 degrees and partly sunny.
Our new gate site is smaller as we are parked within sight of the well drill rig all the time and county road is on the other side of Buster. A lot of activity with the pad crew having a mid day meeting with lunch catered, we also got plates in to go boxes, shrimp and steak, with fixings a great meal. We also had busters water and sew tanks move in with us today fuel for the generator tomorrow.
Bonnie stayed up this morning and went shopping in Pearsall, TX about a twenty-nine mile trip one way. We needed groceries as it had been eight days since our last trip into town (Pleasanton). This was Bonnie’s first trip by herself into town for shopping.

Dilly, Texas - Buster’s Gate 57 degrees and cloudy, sprinkle showers to 68 degrees and cloudy. About noon there was an actual raining shower of tenth of an inch. This put down the dust on the county road when the water tank trucks roll past our parking location next to the county road.
This drill rig being smaller than the last one I am expecting less daily traffic thru the “gate”, actually there is no gate and no fencing. It is just a field on this side of the county road.
Drilling was going thru the night there was no objectionable noise for sleeping from the night drilling operations. Yesterday Bonnie’s sleep was disturbed by the operations around Buster getting the water and sewer tanks set and operational.
