Time for a road trip!
February is a great time to kind of bug out and at least for a little while, get away from the winter doldrums up here in the great white north (southeast Minnesota). Nope, I'm not really taking a vacation next week, more like a working trip to catch some machinery auctions in different parts of the country.
Like southern New Mexico.
English, Spanish and German.
My contact Raoul with the Department of Ag in New Mexico tells me there is a significant Mennonite community south of the border in Mexico that frequents this huge annual week-long auction. I'm very curious to take in this sale and see what types of farm implements are currently in demand in southern New Mexico, very close to the Mexican border.
I'm excited to get a feel for this area of southern New Mexico, as much feel as I can get in a day or two. Raoul mentioned taking me to see the country's largest pecan tree farm. Don't see too many pecan trees here in southeast Minnesota.
I'll post video updates and highlights from the New Mexico auction next Wednesday (February 10th) evening, along with some additional fun video of the area, maybe a shot of that pecan tree farm just for fun.
