We had a few more in today along with the expected every day vehicles. The new ones brought in culverts and a digging machine. These culverts are the start of the oil well drill operation.    
Bit used to bore the hole for the culvert
After everyone was out for the day and there was enough daylight for pictures I went down to the pad for these pictures. The machine and the bit used to dig the hole for the culvert. The six culverts are in the ground.

One culvert in the ground
It’s Monday and the first vehicle in was here early ringing the in alarm as he drove up to the gate as I was going to sit down to breakfast.
Row of culverts in the ground
We got out voter request for mail in ballet today, I thought it was going to be the ballet. So that created a stir to get that back in the mail hoping we can get the actual ballet back in time for the election. We are using a temporary address in Cotulla and the mail was ferried to us today. I got that back to the post office in Asherton and went into Carrizo Springs for a prescription and a few things from the grocery store. I brought back Mexican for our dinner.

Machine & bit
While I was gone one housing trailer convoy came in so the biggest activity of the day my wife handled while I was away from the gate, life happens. For me the gate day was slow as I was expecting more action for a Monday.
