Texan,
I thought you were with GGS and quite happy with them. Have I missed something? BTW, Idaho is gorgeous this time of year

I am and we are, but it's all about $$$$$$ up to a point, especially if you brave a summer here....... There have been several companies that have contacted us and we will NOT consider them, but the ones with a stellar reputation, are worth a look at least.

Gate is taken...I think both people involved will be happy.I let mdbass know our gate would work for a single individual. They are about to finish up the tubing and pump rods on 2 wells and then it will be pipeline (sometime) and then site pipe/production people on a 2nd site. Should only be day work after mid week next week.

Should last a long time as production will keep tankers going in and out.

So IF anyone wants a gate available on MONDAY let me know via PM and I will call you.

We have had no problems working out of the Carizzo Springs office of GGS. Have more than a year with them. I know The Texan has some problems with them but...there are people I do no want to be around as a friend but THEY still seem to have friends!!!!

So...let me know.

C & K's equipment does not look too good...but maybe they have good service people. We're just used to GGS's huge gen and everything seems to be new or fairly new each move we make.

What does this mean? Have you changed gate guard companies?

No..We are still with GGS. I was commenting to Texan about his wanting to contact C & K.
We are with a great rig, not much traffic(less than a page most days)and have been with them since 11/2010. Also, they always pay us extra if there is a production job or a rework job that comes in our gate.

the only information I have on C&K is what others have said. I have never heard any bad info on them and never any equipment complaints. They pay as an employee and their pay is good. They are a smaller company and have stayed that way, which IMO, speaks volumes to their wanting to make sure they stay solvent.

It is just the point that most of the companies have problems, in one way or another, but there are still a couple out there, that appear to be remaining true to their people and will be around in another couple of years.

Cole said to give him a call, when we were ready to close this gate and he would have a gate for us. We are still considering the offer. The other company we plan on contacting is C & K Rentals in Cuero, which has a very good reputation among their employees.


All I can tell you is that Sitewatch REALLY cares about their people. Cole tends to be a bit picky about who he hires. Honestly, I like that! I have seen some folks working for other gate guard companies that I wouldn't let guard my underwear drawer.

Would I steer you wrong, Bob?

I want to stay working as a contractor as long as possible. Hubby is on Social Security and is limited to how much he can make in a year until he turns 65(or 66?).
