  • Midland/Odessa Texas

    I guess I am the only one here who is in the SW US. Although Texas is not considred really Southwest, I consider the Midland Odessa area to be true SW desert. Anyone else in this area? Anyone interested in scoping out some BOL's in this area some weekend? I am leaning towards SE New Mexico. Sound off everyone around here!

    Feeling lonely here folks. I know, with the independent mindset and frontier mentality that there have to be more folks in this area with the "pray for the best, but prepare for the worst" theory on life. Sound Off!!!

        Hey Rusty! You may be the only one out there! I traveled thru the Odessa/Midland airport twice this past year on the way to a natural gas field south of Fort Stockton. In case you haven't looked lately..THERE IS NOTHING OUT THERE! :eek: Coming from S.C. with trees, rivers, lakes, and houses, I was amazed at the remoteness of this area.

        Could it be that everyone around you already knows how to survive and just aren't interested in a forum that teaches you to be prepared? I would think that any of ya'll out there could write the book! ;)

        I went to the Purina Feed store in F.S. just to talk with a local about the area. He explained "sections" and "blocks". I just have a hard time believing that ranches can be hundreds of square miles and a cow needs 8-10 acres to survive. You live in a BIG place!

        I will probably be back out there within a month or two. Actually looking forward to it. I want to get up on ones of those mesas and "look around". Have a good one.
        JUST CURIOUS? PRUNES ARE DEHYDRATED PLUMS. SO WHERE DOES PRUNE JUICE COME FROM?

          You get out this way, make sure to let me know ahead of time. I will take you to the only restaurant in town that has not made me sick at one time or another. Just give me ample warning, and because of what I do, I may have to dash off before during or after lunch/dinner. The joys of the oilfield you know.

            I'll be sure to give you a heads up! Fort Stockton is lacking in places to eat too. No matter who you ask about the best place in town to eat, the answer is "SubWay...it's clean". We did find a flea market sort of place that has a vendor set up in the hallway that serves killer Texas BBQ. I love it!

            I looked up Arlen. Are you the boss of the place?:cool:

              Kind of. Been running Dales Dead Bugs here for a few years with my wife Nancy and son Joseph.

              Actually people get me mixed up with the Mayor. His name is Rusty Shackleford. <-- Note, his name is spelled different. We are NOT related. In fact I would not vote him as dog catcher. Dogs with mange and worms deserve better then RS even touching them.

                I'm all confused now. Sitting here reading this while watching King of the Hill. I'm hearing the same names I am reading.
