Subject: Thanks Garvo/Runningred for your hospitality


N IL

My boys and I had a great time visiting with you both and Adam.  Gave us plenty to discuss and compare on the rest of our trip.  Just home at 9 pm sat.  1335 miles round trip.  Worst corn was near Fullerton, NE, where they planted the previous pastures to corn or beans, and without irrigation they can just about stick the perverbial fork in them.... they are DONE.  Yes, some worse than others. Wonder if they're eligible for crop ins?  All over we saw messy bean fields with volunteer corn 2 ft tall in 6 to 12" tall soybeans.... get a little to dry for effecient harvest last year?  Corn borer or weak ear stems?  You are in the garden spot!  came home US 20 and hard to see a bad corn field in IA on that route... some beans had too much water in low spots.  It was cloudy enuf in IL that crops didn't look that stressed, but the height difference to IA corn is obvious. Yes, had a trailer flat from a rogue nail on the inner back tire 100 miles after loading.  Fixed at the Casey's prkg lot in Nehigh, NE.  Saddest news is we had to sleep thru a rain storm in Sioux City early this morning, and at home we didn't get a drop, brother was cutting wheat and the 30-40% chance of showers was looking less than likely.  Heard corn near Mount Vernon, IL was being disced under, insurance company has written it off.  Some may try beans, others some kind of forage for livestock.  Thanks again, and glad you had a little time to spare.  RP
