7 Things to do While Working in West Texas

Lets be honest, after a long day on a rig you probably want nothing else than to sit down with a cold beer and relax a little. However, for those who are more adventurous and want to explore the Lone Star State, here is a list of 7 things to do while working in west Texas!   1: Rock Climbing at Hueco Tanks State Park Located just outside of El Paso, Hueco Tanks State Park will provide you a break from the flat oil fields and an opportunity to get your adrenaline flowing. Whether you want to go hiking to see ancient pictographs, mountain biking or even rock climbing, a trip the state park is sure to be a good time.       2: View the Marfa Lights If you are interested in witnessing an unexplained mystery, Marfa, Texas is for you! Established in the mid-1800’s mysterious lights have been illuminating the horizon almost nightly since 1883. A story says it’s the ghost of a mother holding a lantern still waiting for her sons to come home. However, even with modern technology, no definitive evidence has ever been found as to what is really causing the lights to appear.       3: Big Sky Drive-In Movie Theater Feel like a blast from the past? There is no need for a DeLorean, just head over to the Big Sky Drive-In Movie Theater in Midland, Texas. They play double features on three movie screens seven days a week with the first movie starting at 7:00PM. Weather you grab food at their full service grill or bring your own snacks, you can keep back, relax and enjoy the show like the old days!       4: Wyler Aerial Tramway Want to see Texas from a whole new vantage point? The Wyler Arial Tramway is your opportunity to do it! The Swiss made gondolas take you for a 4 minute ride spanning 2,600 feet long and soaring over 240 feet deep canyons. When you disembark at the apex you will be standing 5,632 feet above sea level on Ranger Peak. The observation deck provides 360-degree views including three states and two nations.       5: Professional Sporting Events Are you missing the excitement of watching a game live in person? West Texas offers a number of professional teams ranging from the hard hitting hockey of the Odessa Jackalopes, the crack of the bat with the Oakland A’s Double A affiliate Midland Rockhounds or the West Texas Drillers of the Minor Professional League Football.       6: Big Bend National Park If you feel the need to get back into nature, Big Bend National Park is another great option! Take in one of the most remote areas of the lower 48 states via horseback as you follow your guide or escape the heat and plunge into a river rafting trip. For the ultimate freedom, rent a motorcycle and cruise the winding mountain highways or take off down the extensive back roads.       7: Caverns of Sonora You may have heard of Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, but did you know Texas has its own set of caverns too? Located in Sonora, Texas, you can take underground tours through the expansive tunnels and rooms. You can even camp on-site and make a weekend trip out of...

California Prepares for Unprecedented Wildfire Season

(Guardian) California is facing wildfires “outside of any normal bounds” as a historic drought turns drying brush and trees into a perfect tinderbox, officials have warned. The state recorded 665 wildfires from 1 January, about three times the average of 225 for this time of year, according to figures compiled by Cal Fire, the state’s department of forestry and fire protection. Each day without heavy rain deepened the risks of a catastrophic fire season and made it hard to deal with more wildfires if and when they broke out, officials warned. John Laird, the secretary for natural resources, told the Guardian: “This is going to be a fire season outside any normal bounds. Anything could happen at any time.” Although the wildfire season does not officially start until May in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, locals are adjusting to life on a year-round frontline. “This is the first time it really hit home that we have this danger,” said Annette Lambert, who lives with her husband and two young children on top of a thickly wooded slope with spectacular canyon views. More than 200 communities across the state, including those overlooking Auburn, were designated fire-risk zones in the drought. Read original story. As the wildfire season approaches, departments train to remain proficient and prepared for any scenario they may face. However, as hundreds of additional firefighters converge to support out of control areas, their housing is often the last arrangement.  Allow your firefighters to stay in one of our 8 Person Bunkhouse Trailers this wildfire season. With two bathrooms, four bunk beds, a kitchen and a sitting area, the 8 Person Bunkhouse Trailer provides firefighters a place to rest and relax after facing the exhausting heat and stress of...
