Farming Fantasies Fulfilled June 11, 2012

I was hoping to drive a combine at some point.  That had been the dream.  Having been inside an operating combine, that may have to wait, because there’s a fair amount to it.  But, I got to ride in one.   Until it broke.  They are awesome machines.  Amazing capabilities.  Watching it chomp through dense 55-60 bu/acre wheat was fascinating.  Thanks to Brock and Ken Johnson for the ride!

That’s what 60 bu/ac wheat looks like

 

I have some videos I’ll try to upload later. Riding in the combine was a hoot.  When the header broke, I felt bad, because I had been asking the driver about something on his video monitor and he was looking up at it. I didn’t know if I had made him run over something or what.  But, it turns out that wasn’t the case, it was just an equipment failure.  We had to leave to go pick up 760 lbs of beef to haul back here, so I didn’t get to see them get the combine fixed again. I hope they did, that wheat was ready to be cut.
