It all depends on your lease.
Personally, I like to require that a well is spud by the lease expiration date. This date is public record and easily found on SONRIS. Makes for a good clear cut deadline.
I saw one lease that was held by an operator that drilled a water well, then basically drove a dozer around for a week until the rig could move in.
