11 Jun Z Crew: First Trip of the Season Headed South
Manley, NE (Home): Yes, you read the title correctly! Wednesday morning Dad and I will be taking the first trip south. Dad will pull the combine with the semi and I’ll be hauling down the header behind the pickup to Garden City, Kansas.
Mom is going to stay home and pack the trailer house. Mom and Dad hope to be in the field cutting within the next few weeks. We aren’t entirely sure on the condition of the wheat we will be cutting. Garden City has had severe weather over the last week so send prayers we arrive safely! I’ll report on our trip as soon as we return.
Next to driving the huge pickup pulling the header, this is one of the most nerve-wracking parts of getting ready to move. Loading the combine onto the trailer is a difficult task but with Dad’s years of experience and my eye for details we got it on straight the first try!
