Jenna: We made it!

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.

    Hi Jenna,

    Glad to see you and your family are still harvesting. I really enjoyed reading and getting updates on your harvest route last year. I farm near Lakin KS, which is close to some of your stops. The wheat hear is looking good so far. I hope you all have a successful year!

    What if "harvest life" is the "normal life". Now that would be crazy.

    Eric – Thank you! And thank you for following the blog again this year. I know exactly where Lakin is – last year when we stayed in Deerfield, I went to Lakin for groceries. Glad to hear the crop is looking good – keep us posted!

    Iowa – Ha! Twilight zone. Love it though. :]

    Mardrie – So great to hear from you!! It’s hard for me to imagine Garfield County being as green as it sounds like it is. :] Glad to hear you’ve had good rain – can’t wait to get up there and see everyone!! Say hello to Jim for us!
