It's taken a little time but we pushed hard and now we are ready for the 2016 harvest.
We loaded up the last of our equipment in Colby on 12th may and headed for Texas on Friday 13th. Of all the days to be travelling if your superstitious, we even had a 13 vehicle convoy.
The journey took a little longer than expected, 13 hours driving to complete 460 miles. 5 oversize loads, 3 campers and a diner, 3 hopper bottoms and the van pulling the jeep.
We had a strong side wind that really held things up, making the trucks work harder and creating interesting driving conditions for the guys pulling campers, or 55ft sails in their eyes!
Its the first time I've pulled the detach before with a combine on and it travelled very well, very little roll into corners which allowed me to keep a decent speed and little hassle loading and unloading.
We stopped off in a little town called Arnett for lunch again, at a smart little diner where your always made to feel welcome by the local.
And then finally at 7:30 we pulled into Lehman farms just south of Vernon, TX.
