Hi guys, this is my second time posting here. I follow the forum daily and love reading your posts. A few years ago I asked you for your opinion whether I should study agronomy (I have no real background) or mechanical engineering instead. You mostly suggested mechanical engineering for a career as it's hard to start farming from zero and I wasn't sure about it. So I got myself a bachelor's degree in ME, however the love for big iron and working outside is still there. I help a friend on their small farm from time to time and when my uncle was still trucking I always wanted to go with him or help with the truck. As a student I worked in a truck repair shop during summer breaks (out of love for wrenching, the pay was poor).
I'm from Slovenia but right now I'm in the US working on a J-1 visa. I get one month to travel after work, beginning October 1st. So I was thinking maybe I could find someone from thecombineforum to let me visit for a week or so, just to experience a large farm, helping out with anything I can do (and learn stuff, I love operating anything on wheels
), not asking for any pay, just roof and food.
I'm currently located in Park City, working until the end of September, then my roommates and I will go on a road trip to see the national parks, then around Oct 15th I'll probably be free to visit a farm. I can fly to an airport near you, but I have to stay in the US. My flight back home is on 28th so I should be able to stay for about a week. If anyone is interested in having me, I'll be glad to help you with whatever I can.
