Schwope Ranch Northwest of Cotulla Texas on Ranch Road 469

Yeah Yeah I know that we have been lazy about updating out page. But in Luke’s Defense he has been very busy trying to find just the right RV for his Darling Wife Inez.

Ford F350 Purchased at LoneStar Ford in Houston

First he had to find a Truck as it was decided that we were going to keep up with the other Gate guards in Texas and get rid of the Motor Home and get a 5th wheel. Mission accomplished on the truck. Got a Ford F350 Dual wheel 1 ton.

Next he spent many many hours on the web trying to find just the right 5th wheel and by

golly he did it once again with the help of that wonderful Lady Inez we settled on a 2012 KEYSTONE ALPINE FIFTH WHEEL which has every thing that we wanted and then some. Now next Monday our boss Roger has agreed for us to take a week off from the gate to go to Katy Texas to pick it up from Holiday World and return back to our gate on the following Monday.

Now to the Gate guard business they finally finished up well #1 and over this past week-end and this week they moved the rig to is new location here on the Schwope Ranch to drill another well. They now have that task completed and started the drillbits and pipes turning this afternoon at 4:30the they hopes of having the surface drilling completed to a depth of 4000 feet and by Sat or Sunday they plan on installing the casing for that part. We got 5 loads of casing pipes in this morning and 4 cement trucks along with the large cement tanks tha they use for the operation of cementing in the casing. So seems as though they planing on the first drilling  to move right along.

We will try to keep you posted ont here status mind yo we will be gone a week but we will continue to do the best we can with what we have .Check us out.

    Yeah we just Traded this last week for a Keystone Alpine It got a bit close in that Motor Home after full timing for so long in it. It was avery good experence but I think we are going to enjoy the 5th wheel more with the 4 slides.
