Parting Shots from Lantern 3

I’m still not able to get the slide show feature working.  We left Lantern 3 over a week ago. We’re about a half a mile from the rig here at  Lantern 17 which is more typical. It may be a while before we get such good close up shots.

I thought some of you might be interested in a few more pictures of the process of setting up the well. Lantern 3 was built two years before I was – 1954.  It’s a small rig by today’s standards and only capable of lateral drilling, which means it’s used primarily to punch holes (pilot holes or test holes) as I understand it.

If you’re interested, you should be able to click on any of these photos to enlarge them. It may be a small rig (approximately 1/3 the size of the one we’re on now) but it looks massive when you see the men on it.

It’s a tough, dangerous job. Once more, a tip of the hat to those who do it.

    • Penny – Of course you can’t see what goes on at the rig. You can’t even see inside your RV! Have you and David ever just considered running away? Seriously?

What do you think?
