We have been here on site gate guarding for 5 weeks now. Yesterday and today have been the busiest. This is our view of the rig yesterday early.
Same view today.
They started moving out the equipment yesterday and late last night dropped the derrick. What this leaves us is a dusty mess. As shown in this picture, we are practically right on the driveway which is laid with lime stone.
The drive back to the rig, about 500 feet.
Often in the last two days its looked this --- backed all the way out almost to the highway.
Quite a parade of equipment leaving.
We do not know how long we will be here. There is talk of us staying until the "workout crew" is done - whatever that means. We would like to get 4 more weeks of work if not here, then someplace else close. The manager from Gate Guard Services told us last week they have a tough time getting workers this time of year because the snow birds are heading north. Here we are! We are available!
One thing we will have to do is give our home a good cleaning. This is why. A truck leaving today right in front of our door. Can you find it?
Until next time......
