Marcellus Shale & Gas Drilling In Ohio

IN OHIO PARK LANDS??????????

JOETODDSAYS210 What got me interested in this was the news article concerning Gov. Kasich proposed drilling for natural gas “Fracking” in the Ohio State Park system( I really like our parks) For the past few days I have been researching what this might mean for the state of Ohio. Initially, I was aghast this might happen. Let me say I am all for “energy independence” and responsible “economic growth”. Lack of jobs,government deficits,and the recession sure hasn’t been a picnic. If you are at all interested watch this 60 minutes program. (There is some balance to the presentation.)

The statement I liked and my opinion at this time; “Promote natural gas but hold the industry accountable to higher standards.”

Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy Corp., a leading U.S. producer of natural gas and would probably be the company to take the lead in developing this natural resource. From what I have read this would be the best company for the job

“Kasich says Marcellus Shale could be ‘godsend’ for Ohio” John Kasich on Dec. 30 said natural gas drilling in a geological formation that stretches into Ohio could boost the state’s economy by attracting businesses and helping to put skilled workers back on the job.

‘FRACKING” CAN BE PRETTY SCARY. DO YOUR OWN GOOGLE//YOUTUBE SEARCHES AND SEE WHAT I MEAN. IF OHIO APPROVES THIS AND THE DRILLING GOES AHEAD WE JUST NEED TO PRAY IT IS DONE RIGHT WITH THE PROPER OVERSIGHT. AT LEAST MR. MUSTINE THE NEW HEAD OF THE OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES IS AN ORDAINED MINISTER. LOL

It wasn't until the 1964 Civil Rights Act that all public accommodations nationwide were desegregated. 1964 was the year I graduated from high school. Today I find it hard to imagine.

framedcollage1  Linda and I along with my sister Sara when I claim her and her husband Larry have been talking about taking a major trip/tour of the West sometime in the next year or two. Well a couple weeks ago “someone” bought a camping trailer and it wasn’t Linda or I. Sara keeps telling me “YOU BETTER GET READY.” Well I spent Saturday at ”The Show” and I may have found what I’m looking for.

A SPECIAL THANKS TO PHIL AND KERMIT FROM POST’S TRAVELAND FOR TAKING THE TIME TO EXPLAIN THE MANY FEATURES OF THE SPORTSMEN CLASSIC. ( KERMIT IS THE “OLDER” DISTINGUISHED LOOKING GUY) lol

FRAMEDPHILKERMIT

 OH and this is IMPORTANT the PRICE was under $9000.00 dollars. Now I call that a great price. As I went around to see some of the other units at other dealers I found “pop ups” that are priced higher. There was one problem; I explained to Phil that I was the proud owner of five tents and I wondered if they would take them in on “trade”. Phil said,”Sorry we don’t take “tents” on trade.” Maybe when I head back up to Westerville to the dealership I’ll see what Kermit says. LOL 

JOETODDSAYS210 As always thanks for stopping by and let’s think “ENJOY THE GREAT OUTDOORS” P.S. remember next Sat. is the Winter Hike in the Hocking Hills
