Working The Oil Fields In Texas

Home Sweet Home     Wow, it has been a while since I did a blog post.  I got a little burned out so Kathleen has posted a few.  I may now get back to adding some posts.

     A lot has happened since I was posting on a regular basis.  All Good.  We purchased an RV site and RV Cover on a nice corner lot in Amigo's RV Park at Zapata, Texas.  The fishing on Falcon Lake for Bass is fantastic and that kind of drove our decision.  Not to mention, but we like and enjoy the area.  On one of my future posts I will get some pictures up of our new digs.

      You may also remember from a previous mention that we got ourselves set up and licensed as Texas Security Guards last year and have been working as Gate Guards in the Texas Oil Field Area when work is available and we desire to give up the fishing and R & R for awhile.

      We are currently on a site at a Ranch near San Diego, Texas working entry and exit to a drilling rig.  Pretty light duty compared to the very busy site we were on last winter.  Between assignments we may even be able to return to our place in Zapata (to see if the fish are biting) which is only about a 2 to 3 hour drive from the oil area.

     This is a site that is somewhat ideal.  About two miles from town, not to dusty, decent road in and out, great people coming and going, and excellent support equipment set up for us.  We could stay right here long term if needed.  Did I mention, the internet signal is strong.

     The following are some pictures I took early this morning in between rain showers.
