Flooded soybeans

I got 5.9 inches of rain over the past 36 hours. Over an inch yesterday and almost 5 inches in a short time early this morning. With all the mountains round here it can get deep in a hurry. There are benefits and disadvantages to bottom ground...

A fourth of my soybeans probably drowned today.

The pic below is a soybean field with almost a foot of water standing in it this morning.

Some of y'all out west need to come get you some!

Thx-Ace

Feel your pain. 4” over night last night. Puts us about 10” for July. And we are still in drought status.

I know you have said before where you are, but I forget! I was in London Arkansas Wednesday night, and reloaded in Clarksville. My old GPS thought some of Arkansas’s goat trails/ state highways are fit for a 50 foot trailer. I made it through, but I now own a different GPS that hopefully is better at deciphering truck routes. 
I have been on lots of 7% grades in Colorado and Wyoming, but 8 miles of 11% is STUPID!!

 I am going back to pulling for my brother, until I get a shorter trailer.

I'm about 20 miles from Clarksville,down by the river. There are some pig trails up in the mountains.

Who/where did you pick up your load? @Lazy WP

Thx-Ace 

I unloaded my DDGs at JBS pork in London, and reloaded chicken meal at Tyson/River Valley animal foods in Clarksville. Some beautiful country, but not so fun hanging a front wheel over one side of the road and the trailer is over the other side.

Those are on good roads. They are just off I40.

Deliver some to Oark AR or Bass AR sometime!

Thx-Ace 

I tried and somewhat succeeded in going south out of Harrison. Goat trails!!

Take i49 and I40 in western arkansas for good roads.

A friend hauls piggies up hwy 7 from Russellville, through Harrison into North Missouri all week. You get used to it.

Hwy 7 is a primary hwy and relatively straight. Many of secondary highways are much worse. There is a switchback on hwy 103 going from Clarksville to Oark that is so steep the concrete trucks spill out the back on their way up!

Thx-Ace
