North Dakota and AgriTalk
After checking into a Motel across the Montana boarder at 1am, I was back on the road by 4am, and with the sun rising in the rear view mirror I was soon driving through some rich alluvial soils growing a wide range of irrigated crops by centre pivot irrigation booms – the reason most fields in drier areas are circular. The crops were far more forward than those of North Dakota and, after stopping a couple of times, it looks like the barley is about three weeks off harvest.
Off then via Sat Nav towards Yellowstone. I was flicking through the radio channels and found AgriTalk, a great farming program, so I called in and explained what I was doing. How nice it was to have so many people call in after offering help and look forward to meeting some of them in Kansas later on on the tour.
