 Hello from Dupree, South Dakota,

Well Iíve finally got hold of a computer!!!!  Moved from Kiowa Kansas  at the end of June to Anton Colorado where we were for a fortnight harvesting one of the largest farms there, twenty thousand acres !! The weatherís been really hot it reached 110 f in Colorado so I was really grateful for the air conditioning in the cab of my lorry. Whilst in Colorado I travelled about, some of the lads and I went for the day to Colorado Springs and drove up one of the highest mountains in Colorado ĎPikeís Peakí which is 14031 ft high!! The view was fantastic looking down on the city of Colorado Springs, believe you me it was good enough to get you drunk  ( without the beer!! ) . I said goodbye to Colorado and drove my lorry 6oo miles up to Dupree South Dakota quite a journey, started off about 6 am and arrived just after eight at night. Iím now driving about 6oo miles each day carrying corn from Dupree to Gettysburg itís about 100 miles each way, three trips a day so Iím on the road for about 20 hours a day!!!, but as you can see Iíve got the day off today and am making the most of the opportunity  to send an email!!!!

Cheers for now Guto.
