The rain had stopped by nine-thirty and no more was in the weather map forecast so I went into Carrizo Springs shopping for our coming week at a gate. Bonnie was up during the morning dark hours and went back to bed before the rain so she was here sleeping. There was some mostly sunny sky and it has gone mostly cloudy and back to partly sunny. Lazy day doing around Buster and resting. Happy Birthday to our grandson Zane.
Busters Gate Carrizo Springs, TX - Monday, May 18, 2015
Morning 77 Degrees, Wind ENE 6 & gusting to Mph, Humidity 100%, Overcast.
Afternoon 88 Degrees high for today, Wind E 4 & gusting to 18 Mph, Humidity 64%, mostly sunny. (Rain forecasted)
After Bonnie had her shower we packed up Buster and headed into Carrizo Springs to meet the company gate coordinator at the fuel Stripes station. I gave Buster a drink of diesel fuel $ 2.699 a gallon then parked in back to wait for the coordinator and the other RV rig to arrive. The two coordinators arrived pulling generators and we waited another twenty minutes for the other RV rig then we convoyed here to the gate. The other rig is located about another mile into the ranch. We arrived at the gate about twelve-thirty and started setting up our work area and Buster’s location.
This gate is a different setup for us, we are on the right side of the road for the first time it increases the difficulty for us to record the vehicles coming in, but there is more opportunity to communicate with the driver when the vehicle is going out as we are on the drivers side. The first day is always interesting as some of these vehicles coming out were here early this morning and were not signed in just wishing them well on their ride home.
