We got settled in right away to our new area for the moment.
I have to say the 'park' is much nicer than the one in Watonga.
At least we have room to breathe,
and nice pasture land with wind turbines surround us.
Oklahoma sure makes use of the constant wind here!
George and I started a new gate the day after we arrived.
Our boss sent all 3 couples up to this area,
and we shared a gate for the short 5 days it was being fracked.
Each of us made enough money to at least pay the rent for the month,
but that was about it :-(
We sure aren't thrilled that we're not making the money
we thought we would,
but it is more than we'd make if we were workamping for site.
We've already made more than half of what we made at Amazon,
and we've only been doing this for 6 weeks!
I won't get into a discussion about the effects of fracking.
We hear both sides to the story of course,
and we are helping our life on the road by helping in the industry.
So now we sit, in the wind (grrr), and wait for the next gate.
Okarche is a small little town,
but we are going to go to one of its claims to fame..
We want to try some of their 'world famous' fried chicken :-)
We'll let you know how that turns out!
