Not Very Smart

Most of the oil rigs we work on are located on small 2 lane Farm to Market roads. Some are in better shape than others, but all have a lot of truck traffic and they drive fast. The gate we are on now is at the bottom of a hill in both directions. I saw this yesterday, this truck driver passes his destination and decides to turn around in the middle of the road.

I was ready for the crash

He had to pull up and back several times. I was sure we were in for a big accident.

Lucky for him and everyone else he got turned around with only a pickup coming over the hill, he saw him and was able to slow down while he blocked the road turning around. Exciting times in the gate guarding business.
