Do any of you fellas have camps or property in Foard County? If you have a well, are there any well drillers that you would recommend? Any advise on other building contractors would also be appreciated?

Wife's grandparents lived in Crowell. Their well water was nasty. I think they quit drilling when they hit the first aquifer, was was salt/gypsum composition.

That seems to be a problem with ground water in that region. I had that issue with my well for my first house.
A good filtration/softener system can correct some of those issues.
I'd be satisfied with after that is good enough to shower, wash clothes, dishes and run for he septic.

I would be interested in anyone's experience with water storage systems and hauling water to their camp.

City water is a little over 2 miles from our property. It's a straight shot down the county road to tap the main along Highway 6.

I haul water from Aspermont to my barn. I get water from the water tower. I put a 225 gallon in the back of my truck and haul it to my 550 gallon tank in the barn. We plumbed in a small pressure tank (bought at northern tool) and a small water heater. So far it has worked great for us. We don't live there so it's mainly used just on the weekends.

Thanks for the picture westtex. I'd imagine it works the same as dry camping in an RV just on a bigger scale.
