Coiled tubing left last night, picture from a web site, as I was not up when they went out. They were here six and a half days that’s the longest we have had the coiled tubing trucks on a site.

Coiled Tubing Truck
Lots of sand trucks in and out today, busy and fracking now that coiled tubing is done clearing the hole.

Last night and this morning and cows for the first time since we are on this ranch. They came this morning from Busters right side and went on down past the left side out of sight. These are longhorn and a couple of brama. They are interesting to watch meandering down and past Buster.

Buster work continues cleaning the diamond shield of the front of Buster. This is no job for wimps like me, it is a big job and we are only trying to do one area. The two lighter colors across the front. Cutting the glue and wiping it off is the lingering process. The plastic is coming off pretty easy with the hair dryer and a putty knife. Blowing the hot air onto the putty knife and towards the diamond shield and light pressure on the knife the glue is releasing the plastic diamond shield. Now the glue remaining on the surface I am using Goof Off a plastic putty knife and rags

I was able to work without a lot of interruptions because there were no sand trucks coming and going from the work pad. They were changing out equipment most of the day.

Piping crew and welders returned to work the site today. Fracking continues with sand trucks all day and night. The temperature was unbearable for sleeping today. Our portable air conditioner broke a few weeks ago, it is winter time who needs air conditioning now, we do. Ninety eight degrees for the high today. I was out side under our canopy working the diamond shield removal and running the gate. The breeze and the shade from the canopy it was not too bad. Busters dark color is like a magnet to the sun pulling the heet in and the air conditioner does not keep up. The rear air conditioner must be low on refrigerant as it runs but the air coming out is not very cold. That is on our list to be repaired in San Antonio As we cannot do that here at the gate.
