It's that time of year again where my coworkers hardly see me in the office and where I spend more time living out of a suitcase and walking from one farm show to the next. Okay, I can't literally walk from one show to the other, but if sure feels like it.
June started off with the prelim Hay Expo in Waukon, Iowa. That was the first test of the year to get me ready for the months ahead.
Somewhere between the Hay Show and today I lost a few days. 67 to be exact. I was just getting caught up and back to a schedule when I found myself in the car with the gang headed to the Farm Progress Show, held in Decatur this year. And what a show it was! I especially had fun photographing the 3rd Annual Tractor Pull Shootout cosponsored by Great Lakes Hybrid and Farm Progress.
Today I am writing this as I wait for my co-pilot to arrive. We are headed to Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island, Nebraska. Now, if you have never been to Husker Harvest Days - you should. It's a show like none other. I may be a bit bias on the fact since I bleed Husker Red. But the show is definitely worth going to. Just dress for the weather. It never fails to have a heat wave one day and a blizzard or sleeting rain the next. It's also the show where I get in some bonding time with my dad.
The weatherman says it will be a record high today - yikes. I have my suitcase packed and I am headed West. Come out and visit if you see me on the grounds.
