Even in the oil patch, big brother is watching. This unit was placed on a pad we were drilling. It was able to see most of the pads operation's as well as the surrounding country side where the pipeline was being buried.

I don't really know... No one could tell me exactly who put it there. I've never seen one on a pad in my 9 years out there...
But it was alive. I would see the unit on top of the mast move off an on over a few days.

Who installed it Jim? Company?
The MEI Cyber Guard company probably did. You can rent one or longterm lease one. Pretty high-tech 360 degree NV and thermal view for security, project management, safety monitoring, etc. They have a US based monitoring team that watches them for whatever the customer asks them to, right down to individual productivity if they want.

Thank you guys!!

This year's family show was about the same distance you guys were last year but my Mom's deck sits up hill so the view would be like watching from the second floor instead of at ground level. An exciting view for sure being almost half way to eye level of the burst's!

The bottom picture has me on the left, standing like a hero watching my design of 56 roman candles (10 shot each = 560 flaming balls), chain wired together starting to go off. The colored balls going through the white smoke was... "moving" . lol
( I did my first one for Mingo last year with 36)

***And My Favorite
Second from the bottom was the big finale just starting to get going. Although the picture is blackened around, the image is huge to me.It was on Mom's deck where many years of family gatherings have taken place. The right side shows reflections off her glass sliding door. The left, a pine tree. (Most all planted by our Grandfather many years ago.) Centered just a little to the bottom left, a child looks on, hands on the deck railing in what I can only hope is a moment of complete "awe" that he will have for the rest of his life.
