29 May Jenna: We made it!
Hamlin, Texas – Callie and I were serious road warriors today! We left the house this morning a little before 8 a.m. and arrived here just before 9 p.m. tonight. So the 767-mile trip took us almost exactly 13 hours.
The trip was uneventful, which is a good thing. (We had nowhere near the excitement it sounds like Sage’s crew had on their trip south.) Callie and I just jammed to a lot of good songs on the radio, had a day full of lovely conversation, and enjoyed the drive.
It’s pretty crazy to think that this morning I woke up at home in Nebraska, still in my “normal life” – and tonight, I’m in the trailer house in Texas, living the “harvest life.” Is it possible to have culture shock?
On another note, my parents were able to start cutting today! So I should have some sort of crop report tomorrow.
What else is in store for tomorrow? Buying a toothbrush tops the list for me, as I realized I forgot mine at home. Ewww.
