The Way We Were Wednesday - Colorado Here We Come
I have mentioned before that I was active in 4-H in the 1970's. In addition to the County Fair, the other highlight of that was an exchange program. One summer we hosted a group 4-H members from Colorado, and the next summer a bus load of us went to Colorado for 10 days. Tis a long bus ride from eastern Michigan to just outside of Colorado Springs. The group from Colorado rode the train cross country, a sensible way to travel, we chartered a bus, the one and only long distance bus trip of my life.
My host family had a 2,000 acre farm. They had a dairy operation, milking about 200 cows, and about 1,000 acres of wheat. I spent a day driving a massive four-wheel drive tractor preparing ground for planting.
It was fun, and expanded my horizons.
Did you do any long distance group trips growing up?
