Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Jan 10 - 11

Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Sunday, January 10, 2016
Morning 34 Degrees, Wind N 3 & gusting to 6 Mph, Humidity 85%, partly sunny.
Afternoon 50 Degrees, Wind ne 1 & gusting to 3 Mph, Humidity 59%, mostly sunny.
A little hard getting out of bed today after putting in twelve hours, commuting and making (heating up leftovers) my own dinner. But I needed to relieve my wife after her twelve hours on the gate site.
The picture was taken from inside the gate looking out. The tree on the left is blocking a view of the while pipe fence of the first gate I was posted at last week. The road to the right of the picture is the way we drive in from the FM road. The second generator is there because of power surging and lights going out.

The television’s owner showed up this afternoon to take it to another site. It was nice having it for the football games. I did get to watch the first game again today. I watched some of the second game at home in Buster before going to sleep last night and again to night. the company also supplies a small, microwave oven and refrigerator in the shack. Same routine again today the weekends are usually slower with fewer “visitors” checking on work progress. Besides today the equipment was disconnected most of the day from the well.

The crane is holding equipment in place to send a probe down the well.

Morning 32 Degrees. Afternoon 54 Degrees, Wind NE 1 & gusting to 2 Mph, Humidity 78%, partly cloudy to overcast.

The equipment was reconnected to the well this morning and back to weekday routine of gate traffic coming and going but it is a low volume gate, vehicles coming and going. It was a longer day for me without the television to help past the idle time between vehicles coming and going. I’ll have to bring more with me for the idle time awaiting vehicles. We are going to continue working this gate until Friday morning when my wife is relieved. We will have four days off and come back to this gate for another four days. For now we will continue the cycle of four on and four off. Cell telephone service is in and out the best being four G two bars and it is not steady changing to three G and one X and no service. It is like now it is there and it is gone (service). Texting is the most reliable service but that is in and out with some text not sent messages, requiring re-sending the text message.
