At Home Deep In The Heart of Texas.
We are now located near Fowlerton, Texas on our second gate as a contractor with Gate Guard Services. This oil well is almost done, so we only expect to be here a week or two. We arrived here Sunday to relieve a couple starting their trip home to Bullhead City, AZ. No vehicles came by Sunday and this is a daytime only operation, David can utilize the sleep number bed instead of the couch waiting for trucks all night. The fracing and coiled tubing is completed at this site, just trying to get the wells into production now.
This ranch is really in the middle of nowhere, TX. We are at least 5 miles to pavement, then another hour to a grocery store. Nights are quite and thousands of butterflys skim over the brush all around us. Everyone coming through the gate warns us of the buzztails that are about but so far, we have not seen the critters. We do have a roadrunner that stays around the camp and hoping for a decent picture sometime to post.
This has been a sad week for JoEllen and David. Toby, our traveling companion, has left us to join our other fur children. He has not been well for a while and it was sad to watch his slow decline. Cancer has claimed our friend, we will miss him. Goodbye Toby!
Our Great Yellowstone MisAdventures continue at our Latest Great MisAdventures webpage. David might just get caught up soon and post about the fall MisAdventure managing pumpkin and Christmas tree lots in southern Arizona and continuing on to the Lone Star State.
Our Yellowstone National Park MisAdventures can be found on our Great Yellowstone MisAdventures webpage.

Gate Guards R Us for a while. June will see us in Colorado for niece Julie's wedding celebration. Who knows what MisAdventures will await us after then.
Workampers are adventurous individuals, couples and families who have chosen a wonderful lifestyle that combines ANY kind of part-time or full-time work with RV camping. If you work as an employee, operate a business, or donate your time as a volunteer, AND you sleep in an RV (or on-site housing), you are a Workamper! Most Workampers are in their 50's and 60's, however there are many who are younger and many who are older. A little more than half of all Workampers work to supplement their retirement income, while the rest work to support a full-time, or near full-time, RV lifestyle. Most Workamper jobs are in the Outdoor Hospitality Industry (resorts, campgrounds, theme parks, state/national parks, etc.), but there are many very interesting jobs available in other areas as well. Part-time or full-time, short-term or long-term, there is something for everyone!
We found that traveling to places with a shortage of cheap, free, public lands to camp upon, Passport America can provide excellent discount camping for a very reasonable price. Check it out.
We had dreamed for years of Quitting Our Jobs, buy a Fifth Wheel Camper and live our lives on the road, full time RVing. We invite you to follow our adventures by viewing the Great Ongoing MisAdventure webpages. Our past wanderings are also available for your viewing pleasure by clicking on the Our MisAdventures links.
Lord, let us live with joy in our hearts, knowing you will grant us strength and keep us safe in our travels. Amen
