We arrived in the Eagle Ford Shale area March 1st. Our new work gig will be Gate Guards for the oil companies in this area. We both attended a Marathon Oil orientation on the 3rd and we have a Gate here in the Karnes County to work relief for the couple presently there on Monday for about 3 days. As we understand things are picking up in the area and should be plenty of gates to work this year.
We spent the first night at the Walmart parking lot and moved the next day to our RV park. Our RV park is very nice. It is out of town about a mile or 2 and very quiet. We have Full hookups, cable with HBO, wifi, and free laundry. Been rainy and cool the last few days.
Kenedy is a small town less than 4k people with a local Walmart and HEB grocery. This is a big change for us since we had to drive an hour for a Walmart before. HEB is a welcome change as well as we like to shop there.
More on our work coming up…
