    @gdyupgal

    tired, just got back, will be here today working on filling all the applications I got + I have several numbers for you to call direct to - dispatcher / oerations - at one of the companies

    Nabors in the Kenedy yard did "the years with CDL valid driving on the CDL for hire" but when I went back to the conference the table that Nabors had there said Midland / Odessa would work me as I have it ..... SHALE TANK TRUCK, a superior industries company is at 28.909291,-97.935639 for which I can give you a link or something if you need it ~ the company right next door I have a list of telephone numbers that go direct to the dispatcher or operations and that kind of thing, I will be here today and work on all of this after I nap again, I would have brought my camera and made some youtube videos but I was busy as it is,.... nearly half the exhibitors at the job-fair were either worth my time or may go direct-to-hire .... especially the two exhibitors that were main sponsors, Carleen Dark proved to be a very "with-it" person and I am on her "inbox" right now so if they have other events I would think I would be notified ..... wowo6057 has an email address for me, I can write all this stuff up as what you people know as a "web-page" and have him give it to you and jpatp

    I have a contractor who said he would put me to work in a few days, that will be sleeping in a bare camper-shell with no money for a few days 'till I get a 2-3 checks up, I am flat busted for ($) but torac will very likely get me half a tank of gas to get there ..... at which point I am "up" as I can do all of contracting and anything they have,.....the person for whom I would be working said they would not mind me being flat-zero when I show up as that is rather routine in construction & with what I have a "zero-point" which would be stable from which we can build (further as it works when and if it works)

    I am not a people person & wow6057 said he would front the people stuff for me, have not talked much to JpatP but (person) also sounds interested and legit ....

    further stuff to report but need to rest for safety reasons,....try chalk mountian @ eight three zero five six nine two two zero zero as they have a massive yard and are running trucks ... have dozens of other leads, about half of which are either strong or worth working

    Chalk Mountain Services of Texas, LLC has a massive yard near Pleasanton, TX 78064 and so also Frac Tech Services, who runs the heavy-hours ~ this area & operations is potentially to put alaska north slope in second-tier ......

    I have two numbers for Chalk Mountian if you want them,...anti-spam pulled the number for them I had in the original post, this is an edit: you may call Chalk Mountian's yard direct at a number I have and the sign on the highway says eight three zero five six nine two two zero zero

    ... have dozens of other leads, about half of which are either strong or worth working

    Went there yesterday and slept in a Chevron convenience store backyard @ Paige Texas in the backyard as they are working to be a truckstop & doing a very decent job of it,....I slept hard and had to "shower for an hour" to get presentable and spent the morning doing preliminaries and getting conscious ~ as the day got underway about 12:00 ~ 1:00 I drove to the Austin Chalk yard and actually conducted interviewer ~ that resulted in a chance to watch a persons face -{ who had authority to some extent }- as they read the letter I have been sending via paper-mail

    The letter does 100-% exactly what I intended it to do so the fact that I am not getting any call-backs directs further examination of my style & effort, no less than one major is now a definite candidate employer & is #1 on my "prepare for" list,....then there are 2 wireline companies I will be doing further work as preps to pester for getting a job -> tell wow-wow I have a place that may take him and I and tell giddy-whup that Giddings has a Precision Equine event at the Lee County Sheriff's Posse Covered Arena in Giddings,....I am making video right at the moment and have the machine loaded so .....

    Put about dozen or so letters directly in-hand and at least got some information from "power-points" like the yard-boss at one of the two majors who are actually hauling frack-water ..... they are "vacuum trucks" and there is no such thing as the stainless-dream that I had hoped to get a job driving,....just does not exist except in the smoke of recruiter-fog

    then I had a local agency call while I was there so I have driven 60-70 miles back to base for interview in the morning [ standard load a truck on a dock job ] which will (if it works) provide funds for needed items like Red-Wing boots { $185+ } and propane coffee makers ..... funds to fix the camper-shell & maybe even hope to fabricate a support trailer to haul shower-water or sleep in ....

    In any event I interviewed almost a dozen people who actually know what they are talking about ......

    well yes, first thing is to advise any & everyone that I patched the video together from raw-clips just to get something up and there is a bad glitch on sound until the sound track gets replaced, takes about an hour to buffer -{ often less but just depends ~ since this is 9:45 Pacific there will still be some loading on the servers but by morning should be replaced }- until then mute the sound before playing the video,.... I have a lot of work to do on it - Key has a yard in Giddings = do the online application to start and just be sure to do the details: that means --> take as long as it takes to get it right

    Once you are "in the door" sitting at interview, if you have a bad bust on your presentation that can block further efforts but I found one major as well as drove by the yard, the other one uses a labor-contractor and though good is not a candidate for our position,....the yard on the East side of town is at time = 119 seconds, 1:59 showing on the nav-bar -{ called a widget in computer code }-

    due to some of the ahem, issues, that are currently working on the site I will pm you directly by "email" .... I have the video playing now in another tab and it appears the sound track may have been replaced but to be careful keep video muted or way down till the red&gray truck passes ..... we have a direct lead to the possible attainment of our mutual co-op

    at 3:36 showing on the widget that is Austin Chalk,....I have an app in there but that is not where I want to send you ~ I have additional work on how to present our abilities and accomplishment - for now this is not a "first-day doing this" operation nor is it a century-old crusty, seems to be very accomplished front-line operator who still holds the good-attitude view of things

    Where us Rialto Ca in relation to LAX 7-L ?....

    1.383 miles, I wrote you a web-page but it wont send due to operational issues related to issues that I find neither relevant nor related,.....

    Hello Nicholas, I'll be interested in what you find out regarding the wireline jobs. I'm interested in getting in frac or wireline. I've been delayed, but now have my CDL and will get my hazmat asap. I'll be delayed again though because I've been called out to work Hurricane Isaac Disaster. Please keep us posted on your experience in the oil fields. I think I remember we are the same age, so I'm still curious if that's going to be a stumbling block in the oil field. I'm hoping to start my road trip after this Disaster work is completed. GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!!

    I think also we are on the same page, HAZMAT ^will^ be a holding-pattern + I am working on it as of an hour ago, I have a paper letter I will send to TX / DPS in Austin RFI (request for information) as to whether one has to go through the whole licensing procedure ~ it appears HAZMAT - though rather involved - is subsequent to obtaining license + I suggest we post in the regulatory area to obtain skilled efforts,....I pulled the "online" for Cased Hole Solutions & all 3 grades state HAZMAT as requisite ~ I think J-W Wireline similar and frac-tank ( vacuum truck ) is probably around enough HAZMAT that it will probably be also ...

    at least that is what I saw in Kenedy / Karnes ......

    there is enough work in Giddings ~ which is about "ten times" the size of Karnes City / Kenedy and thus has about ten-times the retail and on top of that it has City Meat Market / Gerald Birkelbach

    seriously ~ an ideal "small-town" - though some from the adjacent County think anything over 13 people is a big city and will reject through straw-stuffed teeth those people as being part of the steel-birds in the sky that are so bad -> do not ever go into Bastrop without a hick-hat on <-

    I am going to interview - by agency - tonight for dock loader at PFG so that would allow me to raise funds for things like small propane coffee makers ~ HEB House Brand is best

    I got some editing done on the video, it has useful information I would put the link here but I do not want it showing up on crawlers ~ watch?v=fIf8dQs1yOc - for those of you who do not know how to drive you tube with code pm me or one of the others who has the link already

    B.H.W. re our email earlier today ~ I met a person who did advanced technical field operations, he quit it and went to scratchin in the dirt like I do ~ that is all gone now so I would rather be in a cab moving around than inside on the factory floor all the time

    all -> looks good for getting a call from P.F.G. by way of agency to go to work

    B.G. - what kind of books are they?...

    everyone -> we will be doing Google Analytics and trying to build this into something that matters
