Arriving in Wall, SD

Yesterday we arrived in Wall, SD. Before we got here, we were in Onida, SD. The night before we left there was a huge storm, and I thought the whole RV was going to be on its side by the end of the night.  I am not going to lie I was just a little scared. We finally got through the night, and the next day dad interviewed a few people while Spencer, Brandon, and I went to the pool in Onida.  We got on the road and the air conditioning in the RV decided not to work so we were in a hot RV all day long!

Once we got near Wall, Spence, Brandon, and I all got to ride in combines while they were cutting wheat. They are harvesting a little over 900 acres of wheat! It took two hours just to go around the perimeter of the field!  Riding in the combine was a lot of fun and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We look forward to going to Wall Drug and the Badlands today, and Mount Rushmore in the next few days!

Wrapping up in Gregory

We’re wrapping up in Gregory, SD and heading north toward Onida, SD connecting with several crews who are/or will be cutting wheat Thursday or Friday. The wheat has not been ready here in Gregory, but we did spend an awesome 2 1/2 days with the Misener family.

Laken will be posting more details about our stay in Gregory on Thursday.

The Crew

Today we arrived in Grand Island, Nebraska. It’s pretty hot here, but we’re surviving, and glad to be ready to begin production on the Wheat Harvest Movie. Some of you may have wondered who are these people behind this project.

USCHIFirst of all, we couldn’t be making this film without the endorsement and full support of our Platinum level sponsor, the US Custom Harvesters!  We’re so excited that they have made this movie project possible!  We hope that with their commitment to the project that other organizations and companies will decide to commit to supporting this important work too.

 

Second, I couldn’t produce a project like this without the support and involvement from the people I love most, my family! They are committed to helping out with the first part of this documentary, and are working as part of my crew this summer.

Third, but not least are the custom harvesters themselves! I’ve had many crews contact me about being involved in telling this story, and I’ve had a number of them make financial commitments as well. Thanks so much!!
