Dirt Trucks

OMG - dirt trucks all day looonnggg!!! We had over 165 dirt trucks in and out today plus all the regular companies coming in and out. It was suppose to take 2-3 days to build the newest road and they did it in one day! When I got up this afternoon Jim was wiped out.  The trucks were coming in and out in bursts of 3 and 4 trucks at a time and he hardly had time to go to the bathroom.


And these are big trucks…..


So tomorrow is suppose to be really busy as they start to build the two pads where they will drill the next wells.  We were told to expect three times the traffic of today….oh boy.  It was a little easier with my calling out the license numbers while Jim wrote them down n the form.  Even with that I was tired when it finally got quiet about 7 p.m. (with daylight saving time they can work later).  Then I made a salad with shrimp for dinner and Jim went right to bed….poor guy.

Oh, well, only 11 days to go and we will probably be busy right up till the end.  Oh, well……

Remember, you are loved.

  2. the blue words on the burgundy background are hard for worn out eyes to read. I think we only have 8 weeks to go.......should be moving tomorrow for another one well job, than on to a 3 well frack.

  3. At least the $$$ is good. With luck you'll have earned enough to pay for gas to get to Colorado!!
