  1. I’ve enjoyed hearing about their mini vacations! We never did anything like that in all my harvesting years!!!

  2. They all had good stories, but had to be when Megans family finally made it to Colby and the wait game set in and what they do in their down time with all their machinery in that down time, if that is what you want to call it as they are still working every day. She had some great pictures of what everyone does in that “down time”.

  3. It’s hard to find the old stories in order to pick out a favorite but there was one post that just had me laughing. It was a post where there had been a lot of problems but instead of letting it get someone down they became funny.

    I do enjoy the “Harvest tips” that have been out there the past several postings. I find myself nodding my head in agreement as I recall my days on a cutting crew.

    I would have loved to journal our adventures when I was on crew. There is just so much that happens. Indian problems (yup, really), bad brakes on steep hills, fires, flat tires, accidents, going swimming with nothing but jeans we cut off for the occasion and cowboy boots to wear. It was an exciting time. I live some of those times again as I read everyone’s posts. I miss the harvest.

  4. Megan of Roland Harvesting and her post of 7-19-13 EMBRACING CHANGE. It is a great little story about no-till farming and the Stripper header concept as they were cutting near Hoxie,Ks. The story was outstanding and I feel she did a good job.That Roland is one fine family crew.

  5. My favorite story during the 2013 harvest included a picture of the crew’s grain truck waiting in line at the Shattuck OK elevator. Fifty years ago I sat in that line. I was so inspired by seeing that picture and reading other stories about the crews’ time in Shattuck that I flew from my home in North Carolina and, for a week, followed the crews in Kansas and Nebraska. The high point of the week was being invited to ride along in a combine which was a whole lot larger than the one I drove 50 years ago.
