  1. I drove in the top of the hill and saw a prepared drill site and a second prepared site where the pipe and equipment is being stored. Looks like this might be a central location for the pipeline construction in the Hochheim area. There is also a a recent pipeline that runs on the East side of US 183 for a about 3 miles towards Gonzales. A similar pipeline runs on the West side of US 183 down the hill. Lots and lots of Eagle Ford activity in the area.
