The contractor working the pad as cut some of the workers as there are getting into the job completion phase. Employees came in and then a supervisor then a couple of the workers that are normally here all day came out done, so that pad job is finishing here at this site. A grinder or bush hog was brought in to clear another area near the frak pond. Later another truck was going out told me tomorrow a water well rig will move in, eight loads.
After all the vehicles were out today I took a ride in Tan Jan to see the new oil well pad location that was build while we have been here at the gate. The sticks in the ground are where the wells will be drilled.

Morning 75 Degrees, Wind E at 4 to 6 Mph, Humidity %, partly sunny.
Afternoon 88 Degrees, Wind NNE at 5 to 7 Mph, Humidity 49%, partly sunny with a afternoon rain shower 0.01 of an inch.
Today four loads came in for the water well drill job with four more to come. Otherwise just daily ins and out here thru the gate with the big work yet to come. We heard today the oil drill rig will come in another week on the twenty-seventh of the month.
Of course we got that after coming back from grocery shopping. As we were expecting tomorrow to be busy with the drill rig move in that is not going to happen for a week now. The stores were well stocked as we have found the stores not in the best of shape when doing our shopping on the weekend. Foot traffic in the stores was even less than a weekend shopping trip. This is the first day there were a few ins and outs for my wife here at this gate.

Our day started early as our first in this morning just after six, coolest morning we have had here after the small shower yesterday. The rest of morning was slower (fewer thru the gate). More trucks in today along with the water well drill rig and that will start operating Monday.
Latter in the Afternoon traffic picked up with some late deliveries and some “lookers” checking where the drill rig is going to be placed on the ranch. They will be coming in for the drill operation. The I-pad gave me a couple of problems in the morning when I went to save the record of an in it just went off instead of saving the record so I reentered the information from memory without pictures. Latter in the afternoon the I-pad went blank again and I had to sign in again but it took four times to get it wright.
