Wesauking Pipeline

Stephen Caruana and Greg Colucci of Kleinfelder were in the neighborhood today conducting an environmental evaluation of the proposed Wesauking gas pipeline. This is a gathering pipeline for transporting gas from different Chesapeake gas wells and the current proposed route will connect to the Wilmot pipeline on our cabin property.

Seismic Survey

Workers from Geokinetics were in the neighborhood today doing survey work prior to the drilling/cable laying for a seismic survey. Last year Geokinetics did a seismic survey of the southern part of Bradford County and terminated half way up Joyce road. This year northern Bradford County will be surveyed and include an overlap of some areas surveyed last year.

Fall Fox

I went to the cabin property in the evening to watch for deer and spotted some movement in the field behind the pond. As I checked the area with my binoculars I found a fox sneaking through the grass. The fox disappeared into the woods and I continued looking for deer. After 10-15 minutes I detected movement along the edge of the lawn, it was the fox, about 50 feet away.

The fox walked into the high grass and re-appeared in the field behind the pond and hunted in the field for the next 20 minutes.
