Hobby - nice movie, I guess everything West of the Ohio River and East of the Rocky Mountains does not exist, we are just fly over country and buffalo commons.
In my mind, the swamps of Louisiana, the Rocky Mountains Westward and the everything East of the Ohio River is not America. Of course, i come from a provincial rural backwater in Ioway and always believed the Great Plains and the Midwestt was the REAL America. This little movie proves "I don't know Jack!. Adios Amigo.

sorry John: But you know me, I already know I only count for the taxes they hang on me. On a side note I could identify with about half of those places as I've been there.
But home is here in Ioway.

Nice video Hobby. Didn't see all those bountiful crops the country provides. I knew it, all those uneducated city folk are correct. Bread, corn, and milk don't come from the farm, you get them from the grocery store.

I have to agree with the where's the beautiful swoop down on a corn and bean field maybe one shot out west in Nebraska with all the center pivots giving life to the land. Maybe one at harvest with a nice red combine in a bountiful harvest?
This afternoons project. Out with the old in with the new (to me) It's been rinsed off and put in the back of the shed already. My hobby is out of control.
