On the road—We left home—Holdrege, Nebraska—early this morning. I am hauling my combine and header. Today is May 23 and I just checked the forecast for where we're going in southwest Oklahoma and it's not too good for 10 days. It looks like it'll be the usual June 1 start and will be awfully muddy.

Our luck has been down recently. We lost a combine on May 17 due to a horrible wreck. I've never seen anything like it and don't understand it. It's always been amazing to me how drivers slow down

Remember when you were back in middle school? Class seemed to drag on forever, and you struggled to maintain your attention because all you could think about was one thing.....recess. You spent hours sitting in anticipation, counting down the minutes to play time. Recess finally came, but you struggled to enjoy it because you dreaded knowing it was going to end soon.

Hello all! It’s been awhile. My name is Christy Paplow with Paplow Harvesting & Trucking from Worthington, Minnesota.

Paplow Harvesting & Trucking entered the world of wheat 32 years ago. Gary Paplow made a name for himself after beginning with one combine. He has built his legacy over the years to now run nine Case IH combines, and some pretty impressive Peterbilts.

These days, Gary and his son, Paul, have grown into a well-run family operation combining all throughout the Midwest starting in Texas, and working through Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and as far as Montana and North Dakota
