    Ft Stockton has showers galore. I think I remember a Stripes in Midland has a few showers. There are showers in Pecos. Not sure about Monahans but maybe a Stripes has showers there.

    I wish you the best of luck but I think fracing is going to fall off a lot this year. I highly recommend you go to the other side of oil field services and haul crude or water.

    I've been working in Midland for three years and there is no good solution for good cell service. My AT&T phone has left me high and dry many times while someone else's Verizon has worked just feet away from me. It's very frustrating but I hear some of the more expensive boosters can help.

    Between 33 and 349 and 67 / I20 the service is real sketchy whatever provider you'll use.

    I use west central which roams to AT/T and its doing ok most of the time
     
    tc906 Thanks this.

    The cell booster I bought was around $165.00. Just a small price to pay when you are stuck in the middle of no mans land.

    I would be interested in what you're using...and how well it works. Did you find it on the internet?

    Yes its a Wilson Signal Booster. I bought it from Radio Shack. But they do sell them at
    Best Buy. Just make sure it is for a 4G phone. The 3G and 4G boxes look just
    about the same.

    It works pretty good. There are still some areas that I cant make a call but at least I can still send a text if I need.

    Thanks, Ive always heard good about Wilson. I thought they cost a little more than that. Prices may have come down a bit. Ill check it out.

    Actually they do have some really expensive wilson boosters. But
    I couldnt afford $300+. But I do like the one I did get.
     
    Arky Thanks this.
