New Photos and Oil is discovered at well West of the FLDS

I have updated website: http://web.sccn2.net/flds/

to include aerial views of new oil as it is first coming into mud pit and views from a variety of angles of the compound.

If you would like more detailed photos, just email me and I will send them to you. All are royalty free and public domain.

Great pictures, pilot. I have only seen the compound from the road....even there it is pretty amazing. One of these days Janey and I are going to get you to take us up.

I added about ten more photos - Pay particular attention to the photo “Original Workforce Trailers”. Click to enlarge the photo then look in the bushes in the upper right hand corner of photo. It is not uncommon to see the women and children hiding in the bushes.

These are LARGE photos. Only enlarge if you have high speed connectivity.

enjoy...

Pilot;

I want you to know that I have a great deal of respect for you. The way that you dont mud-sling when you talk about the FLDS shows how classy you are. I have never seen you dis them in any way. Your reporting is plain, simple, FACTUAL, and un-opinionated. This is the kind of information that we can trust! Thanks, and keep up the good work!

Pilot,

You really have taken some great pics, as I said before. I was wondering, have any outside contractors been called in or are they capable of doing all of the work themselves?

ThePilot said...

To Roadrunner:

I do not know the answer to your question, but I can bet no one not FLDS would be there. I base my assumptions on several things:

•First and foremost – the site is sacred. No gentile would be allowed in the compound
•I doubt that anyone could be as professional and gifted a craftsman as the people in the Eldorado compound
•The compound has more than enough expertise in a variety of fields from carpentry to medicine at the compound.

If they did need out side help it may be for Bountiful or CC/Hildale not from the gentile realm.

To New Kid on the Blog: Thank you for your kind words

ThePilot said...

I digitally re-mastered some of the photos and expanded the rest to full screen for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy...

Hey, Pilot heard you met the caretaker of the YFZ Ranch Merrill Jessop. What is your opinion of him.

How do you know I met Merrill? I did meet him, but how do you know?

I liked the man. Please forgive above deletions. I misspelled too many words and resubmitted then deleted wrong one. Now I am trying again!

I like Merril Jessop. I do not think that he has hurt anyone. I am glad you liked him.

I'm trying to create my own thread on my own, so I can edit my thread as needed. I emailed you about this over a week ago, but no response. So I posted my request on several threads. Still no response. Did you die, are you okay?

Now I know that you emailed me back, and this is what you said:

Now, I clicked on the red blog logo in the upper left corner of the blog page, and got the next page, but there was no green plus sign. So I need admin authority to edit my own thread, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. How about it?

You obviously don't know Merril. Sure, he comes off like a gentleman but under that affable exterior is a full-blown PRICK!

He's no different than any other shark in the tank.

Take my word for it, I know very, very well.

onthestreet said...

You must have missed the doctrine, or the spirit of it, and pricked him off, so you got pricked, yes?

I know Merril a little more than you think. He is a great person.

I'm talking to the other anony who called Merril a "Full blown prick."

Reply to Onthestreet:
This mass posting and copying of long threads from other blogs is exactly the reason you lost your priviliges here as a regular contributor. You are welcome to continue posting comments but please keep them under control. I know that you think you make sense, and on rare occassions you do, but only rarely. I've had numerous requests from other bloggers to yet again prohibit annonymous posts because of the way you, and one or two others, tend to dominate discussions. I value your input and have resisted that idea and I am willing to start you a new thread if you like, but I won't repost old comments, especially from other boards or blogs. That is just silly. Also, I would remind you that you started your own blog and that you may run it any way you wish.

onthestreet said...

Well, that's real intelligent. All this mass posting as you call it is the very thing that I HAVEN'T BEEN DOING, for how many MONTHS! But when someone makes a simple request, and you just ignore it day after day after day, what the HELL do you expect. It FINALLY got your attention, did it not. GOOOOOOD. Smell the roses. Gees, admin, on RARE occasions, you make sense, but not even rarely.

Long threads???? You haven't said a word to MIB's posts that are about TEN TIMES the size of my posts. And when you dedicate a thread to one person like you, while witholding his right to make his own thread, while everyone else can make a thread, your PREJUDICE and injustice is glaring and plain sickening.

Let me make a thread, so I can edit it LIKE EVERYONE ELSE CAN DO.
Fair enough? If you "VALUE MY INPUT" then let me input. You don't want to prove yourself a plain liar, do you? And why "start a new thread. HELL, you just started me one. Hey, your intelligence is showing again. Like you just said: "THAT IS JUST SILLY." I can't delete posts there, like everyone else can on their own threads. Get it? Now think hard, it's not brain surgery here.

I appreciate your cooperation.

Keep your hat on street: keep sweet. count your self lucky you have your own web page. What is up with the swearing. That is not making us look good. Do you represent our prophet or are you bogus. He said keep sweet no matter what. I like a lot of what you say, but we must keep our eye on the goal. I say, "Keep your hat on" get you a texas hat if it will make you feel better, because texans do tend to have manner's. And manner's sure can not hurt any of us any.

Anonymous said...

And by the way, it is not the Texan's posting the filth and lies about us. It is the same small group that can stir any one up to hate. ALL PEOPLE HAVE TROUBLE. YET THEY TARGET US. GET YOU A TEXAN HAT STREET. WE WILL WALK THE LANE TOGETHER AND SMELL THE ROSES. MAYBE WE CAN HEAL A HEART OR TWO.

onthestreet said...

Hell is a place, and I describe the place from whence they hail. What's up with accusation? That does not represent OUR prophet, or are you BOGUS? I am sweet within, but are you? Even when God sweeps nations under his feet, in his vengeance and hot displeasure, he does it sweetly.

Now smile, and don't be a sourpuss.
Ahhh, WAIT!!! You just said "Texans do tend to have manners. That is not what the FLDS would say about a corrupt world. Yup, he's bogus.

ATAR_i said...

I think it's easy to say things you shouldn't - a lot of us have. I should learn to delete my posts after I write a long rambling one (yeah - I admit I ramble).

Where is your blog Street?

erichard said...

I was very impressed by the photos. But it did make me wonder about "privacy rights" in relation to aerial photographs. (or satellite imagery or digital cameras everywhere including on cell phones.) Is it good or bad? I bet it keeps YFZ people on their toes. (good?)

You know what David? The admin shows a lot of personal class in the way that he handles things, especially naughty little Davids that swear and throw temper fits! I think you should show a little grattitude and appriciation for Admi putting up with you. It's a good thing that I dont have Admin powers, or none of your posts would ever make it onto this blog!

be nice, k, David =)

The eyes can not trespass in legal terms, the law never specified of enhanced technology. A Cop stops a car and see's an open container and its allowed in the arrest. I don't think the expectation of privacy on the ground would go to far, plus satelite imagery does these photo's all the time. The clarity was really good, you could nearly read the license plate on that White vehicle.

Please double click on the title at the top of the thread. You will see a small trash can by your name. Go ahead and click on it and it will delete the post.

Do you mean before you open the tread, or after? Either way, the titles are not clickable (you have to click on the "# comments" link to open the thread, and then there is still no trash can. Clarify.

No, you don't delve into Trash, you just scatter it far and abroad to the winds. It would really help if you would just gather up all the trash that spews forth from your twisted mind and put it INTO the trash, instead of dumping it!

I have updated the website again with some photos shot Sunday at 8:30. Nothing going on but I was going north and decided to shoot while flying over. Nice shots of the front of temple.

Hey, Pilot!

Is it just me, or are there mostly white vehicles, with a few tans and golds mixed in? You said to notice the black ones, but it looks like there are predominently white to me...??

ThePilot said...

Actually the big vehicles for personnel movement have always tended to be black with dark tinted windows; usually vans or 4 doors with camper shells.

STREET's Reply. Nooo, compassion is good, obviously so. So you misread it, or read into it.

As far as Warren taking such good care of so many families, relieving them of the abuses of their husbands by their wives' own choosing, you're right. Compassion is good.

I'm impressed. Sometimes you actually get something right, and yes there is compassion in you. So be compassionate in your little reply. Or should I duck?

Sorry I missed you pilot. The other pilot did a very good job though. We will have to see you next time. Have a happy re-union.

Well total depth is 7,104 in the Ellenburger structure. There is no oil in the pits, that was an additive. Compleation pipe was on location prior to logging giving a hint that the well is good. Wells to the west produce in the Wolfcamp formation.

onthestreet said...

"Well" that is also significant: 7,000 is seven days in the creation of the depths, as well as the heights. Some produce an hundred, some fifty, and some thirty. Then, what is your standing with the Lord? If all you produce is a few barrels of oil, or a few trillion barrels, "if you gain the whole world and lose your soul, what does it profit you?"

GBNF said...

Street,
What did you do to Kathleen?

HardHeaded said...

Street, why don't you produce some evidence that 1000 years is one day in heaven. I don't think you'll find it anywhere in the bible. I think it says something about it in the book of Jasher but we all know about that book. It's the same one that tells of man throwing boulders the size of houses.

Oh, and if you think the earth is only 6000 years old, you're truly nuts.

Just to educate everyone. The earth did in fact take about 15 billion earth years to form. What most people don't realize is that the record of the book of Genesis began before the earth was made, thus, earth time was out of the picture.

Enter cosmic time, the time all scientists and astronomers use as a "zulu" time of the universe.

Using this time we find for scientific fact that 15.5 billion years on earth just happen to be 6 24 hour days in cosmic time. Isn't that amazing. Maybe what you should be studying is science, God's obviously a master at it.

HardHeaded said...

I really don't blame you, street, for believing this way. I know that if you even begin to question what Warren says or does in your' mind, you quickly snuff it out as he has taught you to do. He has said it, thus it is gospel truth.

He also said his Father would live 300+ years into the millennium.

Pull your' head out and admit he was wrong.

It seems the more false he gets, the more you believe. It is very true that you love a lie.

Sorry for getting off the subject.

onthestreet said...

Nay, very much on the subject. Cosmic time and earth time correspond in powers of ten. Our time on the earth and our resurrection is what we're talking about.

You're a bit off as to the age of the elements of the earth. You put it at 15-billion years in the forming, being ignorant of the fact that the elements are eternal, far more than 15-billion years old. Both gross and spirit elements are eternal, bub. Thus, Mr. Jeffs can lay down his life and take it up again, live here another 320 years, and then go do something else, in precise fulfillment of the prophecy.

Your problem fokes is this: This being a society of consumption, seeking instant gratification, you falter when you don't get it. You consume all things upon your lusts. Thus consumption is your fate. When prophecy and evolution and creation don't happen the way you dictate it should, you stub your toe against the planets and go flyin for a loop, and then into a tailspin, and who knows the depths of your fall.

Yes, the more he says and does, the more I believe. That is the level of my confidence and belief. God spoke, and the world was. So the more a man in their position say and do, the more true they become. If you call that loving a lie, the joke is on you.

Of course, once you all get your head out of a very messy place, you will see it too. But as long as it remains submerged in channels of waste and the degrading of life, you're up to your eyeballs in it.

Maybe what you SHOULDN'T be studying is science. For it's as scewed and perverted as the politics and religion of the masses. Thus, as the Lord promised: "In the last days, the dragon SHALL DECEIVE THE WHOLE WORLD." This being God's word, consider yourselves deceived.

Why do I even try.......
