Busy all day long but I did have time to do some projects. I put our another section of walkway making it four by six foot square with a two by two foot section. When we were in San Antonio in September they installed the new outside grip and having the shoe brush in that area we have a good grip to hold while cleaning our shoes.
My wife was up early and went shopping in Cuero at HEB. We are close to nothing unless you drive thirty miles or more.

Sand trucks, all day never able to plan when they are coming in the gate. Going out times also vary with how close together the sand trucks arrive at the frack site.
Other vehicles are shift change and delivery of chemicals and diesel fuel.

There is other work building a piping network on the well pad that is a day operation so they are in early and out at dark.
Some of the local are now coming around

Sand trucks day and night. Last Sunday and Monday the sand trucks started coming leaving their sand box at the well site building a supply at the well site. Now it is keeping that supply available. There is a conveyer system trailer that the boxes are placed on that can hold four sand boxes at a time for the operation and they use a heavy duty forklift to change out the boxes.

Frack is finishing up and the rigging down has started overnight. The sand trucks started taking out two empty boxes on the trailers. This sand operation uses boxes and gravity to unload on a conveyer belt. Additional empty boxes (four at a time, empty) were removed by a flat bed trailers.
