Out doing a rare-plant survey to help evaluate the environmental impact of new wind turbines, they stopped to say hi and offer me some refreshments, including "cold water" and "hot grapes".

Day 133




When I told Jed what I was doing and why I’d stopped at his house, he went straight to the backyard and fired up the grill, and I spent the rest of a really nice night (no mosquitoes!) with this very friendly family.

Word of my trip had spread to the folks at the local grain elevator, and they invited me in for a visit as I passed through Endicott. It’s harvest time out here, so farmers were hauling in truckload after truckload of wheat. Special thanks to Val (and her boss, Alex) for lunch and groceries!
