Tomorrow morning, weíre off to town to run a few chores. In the afternoon, weíll be baling and picking up a few hundred bales of hay from LuAnnís hayfield. I always enjoyed making hay, but when it comes to throwing bales, Iím not quite the man I used to be. Since the accident early last year, I havenít been able to get my left arm higher then my head, so I have to do all my bale pitching with my right arm- oh well.
To date, the trucking company responsible for the accident a year and a half ago hasnít offered a reasonable settlement, so in a week and a half or two, I have to fly down to Mississippi for a medical evaluation. With any amount of luck, the case will get through court in the next year.
When I get back, I plan on driving the team to the San Luis Valley, west of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains. To avoid Wolf Creek Pass, Iíll drop down into New Mexico and cross the mountains at Chama or Tierra Amirilo. After the San Luis Valley, I plan on heading back across the plains to Indiana, probably via Nebraska and Iowa.
