More Friends and Lewis and Clark
Yesterday I got to ride with Garth and see some radish seed and all kinds of other crops. Susan fixed a great lunch and we just sat around and talked. They have done a lot to that farm.
I was impressed with the new pivot which will raise up and hit more than one field, very impressive. Garth is a innovative notiller so we looked at lots of things and talked about more.
His radish seed was huge!
His homebrew planter and sprayer and his dad's D6 with a backhoe were impressive.
Then we made it to David's family farm and the whole family was there. His dad is sharp as a tack at 90 and his uncle always has a big smile on his face.
His brother Rollan and I had a good chat before David came in with a load of alfalfa on the stacker.
The 2-135 brought back good memories.
Today we drove up 101 and caught the Lewis and Clark National Historic Park and Fort Clatsop. Hard to believe what they did in the early 1800's but they changed this country forever and for the good.
