This summer, as a way to spend some of my time and earn a little extra cash, I spent a couple of weeks working in Ransom, Kansas. I helped the Horchem Family (Gary and Luann Horchem, Jerod and Megan Horchem, and Ron and Dorothy Horchem) on their farm. I worked harvest, did some painting, and did other miscellaneous farm-hand tasks. It was a lot of fun. I enjoyed the crap out of it. It was a nice change of pace from what I normally do. Without getting into all the details of me driving a tractor while pulling a grain cart, changing tires, digging up and repairing water lines, setting up cattle panels, moving machinery and killing a rattlesnake, I am simply going to share a few of the photos I took while I was out there. I hope you enjoy them!
