24 Jun Steph: The circus moves on
Under normal circumstances, if someone were to tell you that they traveled through Kansas, Colorado, and Nebraska, you would think it took a long day (wide loads only go about 60mph on a good day). But since St. Francis, Kan is in the very northwest corner of Kansas, our route north bound weaved in and out of the 3 states which eventually led us to our next stop in Big Springs, Neb. Whenever we travel, we always end up with a long caravan of a variation of vehicles behind us because of our speed deficiency. I like to call them our fans who just want to follow the circus along.
We finished in St. Francis, Kan. in the shortest amount of time in the last 3 years. Other years, the rain has set in and we are there for close to a month. We were in and out in a week and a half!
Quote of the Day: “I’m gonna go try get somethin’ done right, wrong, or otherwise!”
Harvest tip: As much as I like to think the vehicles following us on our travels are our fans, it is highly unlikely so when you see a big enough shoulder or big enough parking lot in a town, pull over and let them go by so they can actually go the speed limit.

Heel clicking on the border! And technically in 2 places at once since this is the border between Colorado and Kansas!
All loaded up and ready to head north.
Our AAWH crew photo. Get it? All Aboard? Train? Good! If it’s not obvious, we are the type of family that will pull over on the side of the road for a photo opp. This little caboose was parked just across the Nebraska border
