17 Jun Z Crew: Combine Delivered Safe and Sound to Kansas
Manley, NE (Home): Last Wednesday and Thursday Dad and I made the almost nine hour drive to Garden City, Kansas to deliver the combine to our first stop. We made it to Kansas with no issues and turned right around to head back to Nebraska. Great Bend, Kansas is all the farther we made it on Wednesday night due to heavy storms and strong winds. We continued down the road on Thursday and made it home late in the afternoon. It was a quick and easy trip. Exactly what we’d hoped for!
Over the last few days Mom has been busy packing up the trailer house. Mom and Dad hope to travel to Kansas with the rest of fleet tomorrow. Callie, Jamie, Eli and I plan to help with some finishing touches tomorrow and maybe see Mom and Dad off for the summer.
Jenna left on Saturday morning for her first farm show of the season. She’s in Kentucky for the next few weeks. And I’m sure at this point you’re wondering why Callie and I aren’t heading down with Mom and Dad tomorrow. Callie has a school trip to Nashville June 26th – July 3rd. As soon as she returns to Nebraska we’ll pack up and meet Mom and Dad wherever they are.
Although I’m itching to be on the road, I’ve never been in Nebraska this late into the season. I’m experiencing all kinds of activities I’ve always missed (and I know Callie’s enjoying the extra time with her friends). Omaha hosts the College World Series so I plan to attend a game tomorrow night and I’m also looking forward to a wedding this weekend that I had originally thought I’d have to miss. So far it’s been a strange summer. I’m ready to get back into some normalcy soon!
The storm clouds rolled in as Dad and I unloaded the equipment.
