    Hi, I'm willing to go back to oilfields. Experienced tanker driver, hauling water, batteries, disposals, mud, you know what.
    I want a career, not a job. I like electronic logs, and to pre-trip and be happy about my truck.
    Suggestions? Thanks to y'all.

    Yes, I too am looking for another gig in the oilfields. With water hauling experience. But who has good housing in South Tx, that would accomodate along with good/decent pay???

    No more Midland/Odessa for you? they sent me a pm telling me about Carrizo Springs, TX, and a company who gives housing named Equipment Transport. I don't know if they are good, need to dig inside the forum.

    The funny thing is we still have a hard time keeping drivers.
    there's more money to be made down here doing water, or oil.
    but you won't have any kind of life or time off to speak of.

    The drivers down here are so spoiled that they'll jump ship
    at the blink of an eye.our work is consistent. We service the wells
    for anadarko. No sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring.

    Ive had a total off 1 day off because the water levels where low
    in 4 months. Easiest money I ever made driving a truck.
    After 15 years OTR my only regret was I didn't jump on this sooner

    If your not afraid of the dark and can lift a 15lb hose 3 times a night
    and stand at the back of your truck for 30 minutes at a shot in the
    middle of no where all by yourself then it's easy money.
    The hardest part of the job is taking the beating on the dirt roads.

    LMFAO that's what I miss from my job!! the loneliness, being in the middle of nowhere, checking a battery, loading from a water pit, checking frack tanks, and those #### hoses and fittings
