Oh man, where do I start. 13 years on the wheat harvest accumulates a lot of stories. I was a trucker this one day way out in the middle of nowhere west of Sharon Springs Ks. When the grain cart came to my truck I stood on the top of the semi trailer at the back of the trailer and directed the cart driver. I stood way up there on top so the 16" unloading auger on the cart didn't block my hand signals to the driver. The cart put the alloted amount on the front and then I waved him to back up to the rear of the trailer. When the rear of the trailer was full I directed him to pull forward toward the front of the truck a little. He still had it in reverse and when he took off backward that big auger came right toward me. Instead of letting it knock me off the back of the truck I climbed aboard the auger and layed on top of it hugging it. The cart driver didn't get it stopped till the auger was several feet back of the truck so I layed there hugging the auger looking down watching 300 bushels per minute of wheat go on the ground behind the truck. Cart driver got confused and so we just sat there augering wheat on the ground. The only thing going through my mind was the sight of watching all that wheat cascading toward the ground. He finally got his wits about him and pulled forward at which time I casually stepped off the auger and was back standing on the truck again. I had to scoop up the wheat in 100+ degree temps cause the cart driver didn't know which end of a shovel did the work. One of the combine drivers was watching this unfold and he said he didn't know whether to laugh or scream. lOL Jim
