We are scheduled to take over a gate tomorrow morning. There is always a bit of apprehension involved with assuming a gate for the first time. You are not exactly sure what you are getting into. It could be an adventure or a nightmare. We have experienced both.
Easy access. Good, short road to the gate. Not 5 or more miles of rock, ruts, gravel, and dirt, that destroys vehicles and frays ones nerves.
Level, dry site.
A drilling rig.
No requirement to keep gate closed at all times.
Decent cell phone reception.
Super Wal-Mart within 30 miles.
Good Co man.
Clear, concise, and sensible gate instructions.
There are probably a few other considerations but I believe if these 8 are part of the equation, it will be a good gate.
Well, hold on. I forgot a few. Such as:
No big spiders
And, oh yes……………an outside temp range of 70 to 74 degrees.
So we wait and prepare for the morning. We wonder what adventure awaits us? Keeping our fingers crossed.
Think I will just chill and watch the US Open. Hope my man Phil can win it.

Here’s hoping your gate is all you wish for, though I think asking for 70-74 degrees in South Texas is pushing it a bit. LOL.
I love everything Texas except July and August.
Hey, Bob thanks for the blog about the batteries. It reminded us to check the water in ours and of course they needed water. Thanks again!!!!!
Don’t be like me. It could be expensive.
Another good one, nothing hilarious, good instructional and biographical info. GOOD LUCK TOMORROW !!!!!!!
LOL… Oh yes, we have experienced much of this too. After three months & 8 miles down a rutted, rock-laden caliche road, we had to buy new tires on our toad. So much for money in our pockets! Here’s hoping you get a drilling rig (not fracking) on a highway with a level site and NO SNAKES!!! And no more electrical problems 🙂
Keeping our fingers crossed.
