An all day rain totaling just under an inch measured. We took a ride to Victoria, Texas (southeast of here) to check out the area. We have not explored Texas east of interstate thirty-seven as all of our gates have been on the west side or west of interstate thirty-five. It is a city of over sixty thousand population the biggest in the area we are unless you go to San Antonio.

Busy day for us running around getting ready for work we were out and on the road early today. First up was thirty miles to Kenedy for fire retardant clothing, shirts and pants last week we picked up safety shoes. Called our coordinator for the H2S gas training class that would start at ten o’clock, it did not work out. We drove thirty-three miles further southwest to Three Rivers for two things, we got our pants hemmed for free (sister store) and a H2s class at two o’clock.
In between these we put a better effort into getting a rental car and have some lunch. We called around the local cities everything but San Antonio, so we were on line to Expedia clicked on rental cars and made a reservation at the airport for later today for a compact car for a month. It was the lowest price we could find anywhere.
This will allow us to work two gates. When we are out at different work sites we each are required to have transportation if there is a safety issue at the work site. After the class we headed to San Antonio airport (eighty-two miles mostly interstate highway) to pickup the rental car stopped for some last minute things at the store. Our coordinator contacted me for a gate in the morning, be there at the gate at five-thirty. After the shopping and to stay out of rush hour traffic we stopped for dinner before going home.
We had no rust hour traffic but there was a detour at the exit we wanted to take for construction. Then at the detour exit there was a stalled car in the left turn lane but it is dark now and we are familiar with the area, fun. Eighty-three miles later we are home a thirteen hour day. Work tomorrow sleep fast four am comes early.
