Busters Gate Catarina, TX - Oct 26 - 28

Busters Gate Catarina, TX - Wednesday, October 26, 2016
Morning 66 Degrees, Wind E at 2 to 4 Mph, Humidity 84%, mostly cloudy.
Afternoon 90 Degrees, Wind ESE at 3 to 4 Mph, Humidity 26%, mostly sunny.
Busy day for me frak tanks, housing trailers with support equipment and pumps being brought in today. More “lookers” and my usual daily vehicles coming and going checking in the oil wells already producing on the ranch. Most of the lookers will be workers on the drill rig. They were given directions and are checking where the directions take them. With these housing trailers (temporary) and skid trailers we will be having “sleep overs” or workers on site twenty-four hours a day.

Busters Gate Catarina, TX - Thursday, October 27, 2016
Morning 63 Degrees, Wind ESE at 3 to 7 Mph, Humidity 90%, mostly sunny.
Afternoon 89 Degrees, Wind variable at 5 to 11 Mph, Humidity 33%, Scattered Clouds.
Very busy day with all sorts of vehicles coming and going, paying back those easy days earlier this month. Fifteen “big” trucks throughout the day a three of them had trailers, with seven axles. These were just the cranes three of them to assemble the drill rig when it arrives. I heard the drill rig has been “stacked” parked somewhere in Texas awaiting a site to drill. That explains some of the lookers that are coming here to see about their work. There are other workers for the water well and the frak pond construction. I have not been able to get any pictures as my hands are full with the gate, an I-Pad and memory, not remembering to get out my phone camera. I also have to ensure the vehicles do not hit the gate.

Word is out the rig is here and salespersons are now coming to try and sell their company’s service or product here at the site. My wife stayed up this morning and got our shopping done for the week. We are finding the shopping in the week better, the shelf’s are full, not wholes where things were in the stores. Both Walmart (not a supercenter) and H E B are small town stores with a limited selection.

Rig module coming in the gate

Busters Gate Catarina, TX - Friday, October 28, 2016
Morning 58 Degrees, Wind SE at 4 to 5 Mph, Humidity 89%, mostly sunny.
Afternoon 88 Degrees, Wind SE at 4 to 8 Mph, Humidity 34%, Scattered Clouds.
Very busy day with rig parts or modules being brought in by the truckload.  Some are also wide loads but all are heavy as just the trailers have four or five axles. Anyone can tell the rig had been out of service because some of the module stiil have weeds on them after being loaded on the trailers.
