Since i work with a drilling bit company i get to see the rig move and running and such. Figured i would take some pics of the rig being hosted up. i got some pics of the location showing all of the trucks and stuff that is needed to bring a rig up but as you go down you will see pics of the rig going up.

This is a rig i was at yesterday, this is one of my father's rig that he looks over. While i was taking pics people thought i was the safety guy!!! lol

oh well they knew who i was when i unloaded a 17 1/2 in surface bit and a 12 1/4 in pdc bit!! i put them to shame too cause one guy tried to help but he could pull the bit over to the right spot i told him to walk the bit but he still couldn't move it lol. so i drug it over without breaking a sweat lol. they weigh around 200 to 250 and they are a 17.5 in wide and about 19 in tall so they are really heavy for their size.
hope ya'll enjoy the pics.

this was cause there was gas blowing and as they was removing stuff and securing everything a spark happened and set the place ablaze!! no one was injured so it was alright other then losing a multi million dollar rig!!
