Afternoon 8 Degrees, Wind  at  to  Mph, Humidity %, .

Eleven more loads (tank trailers) of drilling “mud” they are not here long, about twenty minutes to unload, in and out along with other traffic of pickups. Ten truck loads of drilling pipe, large diameter. Some of the rig transport tractors went out “bobtail” to get a trailer from another site returned and put another trailer on that taking away two trailers, a five axle trailer hauling a four axle trailer. The tower did not have a trailer but was using a dolly and that was transported out on a flat bed trailer. So I think the rig is here. Two trailer truck loads of diesel fuel was delivered to power the generator and hydraulic system.
