Eagle Ford Drive By

Coming and going on the Baytown trip, I cut straight across (or thereabouts) from Cotulla to Victoria.  I bisected the Eagle Ford Shale field west to east and it was an interesting ride.  Seems like there was an oil field gate guard  every 5 miles or so.  I saw everything from 6 figure  $$ plus coaches to ex-FEMA trailers.  I saw one with a trampoline leaned up against the western side for???  Maybe to shield the sun or maybe I just don’t wanna know.  Lots of folks with canopies and one with a deer stand sitting on the ground right next the road.  I guess that would work as a guard house huh?

Well, here are a bunch of pics I started taking at Kenedy and continued as I drove west toward Cotulla. Some of ’em are a bit blurry, overexposed and out of frame.  I was driving 75mph on a rough ass road and I wasn’t wearing my hat.  Used to know a guy who stuck a quarter in his ear; said it helped his balance.  Maybe I should have put my hat on and stuck fifty cent in my ear.  Oh well, I didn’t get all of ’em.   It is what it is :).

 

Might be interesting to know via the comments  if you see your rig in any of these shots

      I’ll be darned John! I shoulda stopped by for a visit!

      BTW, a reminder for everyone about PICTURE SIZE. If you want to see the pic bigger. Click once and it takes you to another page. Click the pic again and it makes it bigger. It is a wordpress thing I do not EVEN understand.
