i had a good riding buddy [god rest his soul] who every time we would get together to ride it would rain. he would call me and ask "do you want to do a rain dance?" so much so that my cousin who had a farm in uptsate new york called me and asked if the two of us could get together for a ride to his place because it was so dry. we went. and yep it rained.
I drove a grain truck for some friends when I was riding in Innisfail, Alberta back in August.7/13/2022
I was up real early, I waited for the sun. I left about 20 minutes before sun rise. Stopped in Garden City for fuel and then to Liberal for a McDonald's stop and breakfast. Continued to Perryton for another fuel/break stop. I was trying to surprise a friend of mine in Pampa. His wife could not come up with a good idea to get him off the farm to town so I could surprise him at a restaurant. I ended up riding out to the farm. He was only slightly surprised. I first met this gentlemen back in late July of 2008 when my 1985 Jeep CJ-7 broke down about 3 miles from his farm. Making a very long story short I came back to his farm in October and drove semi truck and grain cart during the corn harvest. I showed up just before lunch and we drove to Pampa for Mexican food. After lunch I rode along in the pickup and we checked on cattle the rest of the afternoon. Checking that they had water, salt and minerals. Oh, and it was hot, very hot.
