Hey!!! You're still with us after all! NASA had no reports of any alien abductions of custom harvesters and I did not think you ended up in the "Bermuda Triangle" of the Great Plains--LOL! Just kidding!
Anyway, yes, I am glad to see that all is well and that you are en route to west central Kansas. I'll bet you end up pretty close to where I also once lived, myself.
Hey, I really do want to visit with you some more about this idea you have for rebuilding the combines as soon as harvest is over.
I do have contact info for Allen Harvesting. Unfortuantely I backed out of a prior commitment with them when I originally changed my mind, but at the last minute was drawn back to harvest and found a crew that would take me. Lance is good person from what I knew of him.
I agree, Alex. I've heard NOTHING negative about him, but honestly did seriously wonder just what may have happened when he more or less just dropped out of sight. My real concern of course, is simply just the financial stability of one's business. Custom harvesting just doesn't have the wide margin it once had.
Thacker has CX, not CR and I believe Thacker has 5 not 6. Unless he added one this year, I'll have to ask Harvest Support. Collins from SD has 3 or 4 CR's now. Floyd's out of Canada has at least one CR, saw them go through Ogallala NE a day or two ago. A couple singles running around also.
Borrowed my forman's wireless laptop, still cutting poor wheat, harvest is moving fast, be home by mid July at this rate.
