Puckerbrush Preps

OK, confession time. Less than a decade ago my pantry was thin and my teeny RV freezer was chock full of Lean Cuisines, Hungry Man dinners,  State Fair Corn Dogs and Heat’n’Eat Hot Wings.  I didn’t own a water bottle because I drank a 12 pack of unleaded Pepsi every day.  A microwave was indispensable because – frozen dinner.  I distinctly remember buying Hungry Man’s  because it screamed out on the package they contained 2.5 lbs of food.  Mebbe not good and healthy food but Jesus H.

Surfin' the (air)Waves

My spring abundance

I had  a crew come in late yesterday to clean up the containment left over from the recent flowback.  Containment equipment is put in place to keep inadvertent spills from contaminating the ground.  Think a kiddie wading pool around a well head or storage tank and you got the idea.  They came rollin’ out about dark and said they would be back in the AM.  Seems every dam or ground cloth they picked up was hiding a rattlesnake and it got too dark to see.  Doesn’t surprise me much since we had a warm, wet winter and

Gate Guarding in South Texas - The Finer Points

My lonely neighborhood

Next month will mark the start of my seventh year as an oil field gate guard in the Texas oilfields.  From The Barnett Shale north of DFW to the Wolfcamp of West Texas to the puckerbrush of the Eagle Ford;  I guess I been there and done that.  Some people got the grit to be here and some don’t.  I have known more than one RVer who fell off down here and expected to be riding a biscuit train with gravy wheels. If you won’t come out of your RV because there is a buzztail under the
