FM 933 - Whitney to Aquilla

Go south from Whitney on FM 933 for approx. 8 miles. This is an aerial view. If you are familiar with the area, it's very easy to find. When in doubt, check out Mapquest and it will give you the best route depending on where you are coming from. (Map courtesy of Google Earth).

Powerchutes - Look Mom - NO HANDS!

Powerchutes sailing through the evening skies just to the south of Blum, TX. Thought they might come closer, but they both veered southward and disappeared below the timber line. Looks like the perfect way to relax and forget your troubles, or view your gas well from above. I've seen a billboard in the Blum area with Craig McPherson's name on it advertising; 'Dreams Of Flying'. Is that you Craig?

J-W Operating's Craig-Davis Lease

The new road cut to the rig has the strong scent of a Christmas tree farm. Mountains of cedar trees were pushed aside to make room for this drill on HCR 1212.

J-W Operating's Craig-Davis Lease

Pallets of drilling mud additive.

Old cedar post fence just down the road from the Craig-Davis drill.

Make sure those motors are running smooth, and that drill bit doesn't stop turning.

Drill completed at Gerik Lease in Aquilla

It appears that the drilling stage at the Gerik Trust lease in Aquilla has been concluded. The rig has been disassembled, and I'm sure has found another temporary home somewhere in the Barnett Shale/Ft Worth Basin. This photo shows all that remained at the site as of Friday, Nov. 3rd.
