re: any of you baws left the oilfield and aint going back? - JL
I'm still happily employed in the oilfield. If I ever left I would probably try to find a job where I got to work outside or meet interesting people. Hopefully by the time my oilfield career ends I've saved enough money to buy a sailboat and just cruise the Caribbean. ...

re: How much is the King Ranch worth? - JL
I've been down there hunting and fishing on a few service companies leases. The entire ranch is the size of Rhode Island and has over 40 miles of coast line on the best trout fishing bays i've ever seen. Captain King who pulled it together literally went to Mexico and moved an entire village ont...

re: Disney for Adults - JL
Me and my gf went, we are pretty similar in age to y'all. I had a great time. Universal studios definitely has better rides and serves alcohol, more adult friendly. We did magic kingdom for a day just for nostalgia, it was fun but no alcohol served there. The laser show at the end of the night ...

re: What's the worst behavior by a fan you've seen at a sporting event? - JL
Besides the normal fighting and stuff, at an LSU/BAMA game in death valley a few years ago we had really good seats, 50 yd line like 20 rows up. I was on the aisle across from a group of bama fans who paid a fortune for the tickets I'm sure. The band just took the field for the national anthem an...

re: Charity/Aid Thread: Where you can volunteer, donate, etc. - JL
If anybody in Houston wants to send anything to Baton Rouge I'm loading up a trailer and leaving Thursday. I'll be dropping off all donated items at one of the shelters then heading with a crew to start the cleanup effort. We have plenty of water already donated but will take other items. You can...

re: Where are you going to retire? Is Louisiana on your list? - JL
I would love to have a condo in the french quarter and a sailboat in the Caribbean when I retire. I'm saving my arse off to be able to do whatever I want. I'm sure those plans will change as I get older. I just want to maybe have one place I own and just travel around all the time. ...

re: Cheap Flights to South Africa - JL
We went in May. It was the beginning of winter so the weather was very nice, wore a light jacket in the morning and jeans at night but shorts worked fine the rest of the time. I've been a lot of incredible places around the world, I would put South Africa in my top 2 or 3 ...

re: Thailand and Cambodia - JL
Siem Reap was awesome, we stayed at The Privilege Floor, it was pricey but included a full time driver and guide for the entire time we were there, this included whatever tours of the ruins you wanted to do. Go check out the floating village on the lake, it's pretty interesting to see how they live....

re: Something you argue with your wife about that's really not that big of a deal? - JL
She doesn't rinse off dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Also puts dishes covered with crap in the side of the sink without the disposal. Drives me crazy. She now does it on purpose because she knows it annoys me. ...

re: Steak 48 - Houston - JL
Went to hopdoddy, food was good but the setup is weird. You stand in line to order. Then while in line somebody finds out how many in your party and tells you a table number to sit at. Then another person comes and waits on your table after you order at the counter and you pay this person. Seeme...
