An oil field gate guard's view

We are into our third year of blogging; me and the Old Girl. Sometimes I question the usefulness of blogs, mine included. In some cases blogs can be an indispensable tool.

When we started thinking about all this oilfield gate guard business I punched up some of that Google Fu and found some blogs published by oil field gate guards. The blogs helped out a great deal with understanding the job. I would suggest any one thinking about this line of work to check them out as well.

  • Andy-
    Thanks for the mention on your blog. I read the other 3 regularly and really appreciate their knowledge and journaling of daily gate guard life. I couldn’t begin to do that and make it interesting or accurate. :-) Fork isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but thanks for including it. BTW, I have to say, I love a guy who admits he watches DWTS! And kudos to your very wise,calm wife!

    Hi, thanks for the good info. Looking at these blogs I had an idea but don’t know if it’s feasible. Is there anyone providing sick day relief or able to stand in for you and other guards for a 12hr shift when you need time to handle personal business? I was thinking of getting a truck camper and putting word out through various companies that I am available for relief. Think that’s feasible?

    Thanks,
    Wade

    Hey Wade. I had the same thought for temp help.
    That would come in very handy for all the gaurds to go out to eat together
    and handle personal business. Like Dr visits
    etc. Maybe you can be an independent and provide
    relief. Let us know. Regards, Miss Kathy
