    I really don't think it is accurate, I know a couple guy's got vac truck job's outa school for $15 hr. Hubby say's with experience $20+ an hr. He says crude haulers get paid by the barrel + miles.

    With your own RV in Big Spring your could find a park starting at $250 a month and going up. Midland and Odessa are alot more.

    I've got a friend who is now completely disabled with about the same problems - he just turned 36. I would take the easiest route you could to lengthen your mobility time.

    Yesterday I could have grabbed the paper (with name & phone number) out of the laundromat. I'll get the number's next time I go to town though, if you want. And do remember I said "starting at", which probably mean's just the lot rent. Like Denny's menu start's at $2... if you want a drink or any extra's add $$$, electric and water/sewer you probably pay yourself.

    $550 will get you a site at Big Spring RV park ( monthly rate), with all bill's paid,free wi-fi, 100 channels of cable ( not sure if that's free), laundry facilities on site, video surveilance, streetlights and semi parking. Google search will give some a little cheaper, but they probably don't have as many amenities, I couldn't find the rates on the RV park attached to the golf course. Plus all the "park's" aren't listed either, I know I've passed some that I couldn't find on google. Heck I couldn't find the one we are living at on-line or the other two here in Garden City.

    Like I said I'll get the name and number when I go to town, the flyer said $250 a month, it didn't say anything was included in that. I generally go to Midland on Friday's and Big Spring on Saturday's.... unless my husband or one of the guy's want something sooner...then I hit town. I could make money with a glove store....lol

    I'm paying $400 with all bills paid but $250 might get me to move unless it's just a parking space

    it's a no-brainer man. come on over to the Permian. veterans are well-respected here and you'll be hired in your first hour of job-hunting. there are zero advantages to otr over the oil field, especially living in el paso. oilfield offers much better money and much better home time. many people from el paso work out here. your wife is either confused or only wants to see you 1 day a month ;)

    What is this KD's y'all speak of?

    Good brisket could be a deal-maker! It takes some good food to keep this 6'5" 230 frame going strong!
