Beautiful trip to my homeland...very emotional, very happy AND sad.....
I have always loved and been amazed by the Prairies and the Prairie people....and I respect them even more now......homesteading in the early 1800s and living in tents in -50 degF weather is $%^#ing insane.......Nike wouldn't have had a T-shirt with 'no fear' then....it would have read 'severe, gristly and unyielding ba$tards....beware'.....
I got to run some neat equipment......John Deere makes some serious $hit man....."The quality you deserve is not expensive---it's priceless"

I went to Paxton, Nebraska last summer. We took a county road (that was a single lane cowpath) about 30 miles into the prairie/sandhills.... cattle guards every 5 miles....
And there in the middle of nowhere is a cemetery from the early 1800's.... someone with a big heart keeps the weeds down.... saw one family in there lost a child every winter for 3 years...
Sad, but like you say it makes you respect what used to be....

I also rode in a 'sprayer with over 150' of boom out that has 5 sonic sensors in each side that articulates at 20 mph over the land so that it maintains about 8" above the 'weeds' no matter the dips and hills....wow....
Very Impressive....and humbling...

Here's my Great Grandfather's headstone....that one that lived the first two winters in a tent! I also found out he was a pigheaded, stubborn, loudmouthed, opinionated Scotsman......I got it honestly.....!!!
Doreen is the 'ole girl' in the picture and is 84 or 85 I think....she's got pictures and stuff going back a hundred years. Her house was built in 1905 and she still lives in it......and yes it now has 'flush toilets'."The quality you deserve is not expensive---it's priceless"
