Two towns, same photos

Ooooh rrrrrrrrrrrr. Happy days if you like your farmers as we are all bang in the middle of the Texas Plains, a huge belt of agricultural land that feeds the Big Mac loving Yanks. Try searching on Google images for the towns of Albany and Anson. They are about 75 miles apart but images show plenty of tractors, combines, ploughs and more. Exciting stuff if you're a fan of agricultural hardware. Not so for anyone else.


For the second consecutive day, Team Mini Inn have won the daily race. A close run thing though. 115 miles in the day for Mini Inn v 107 for Pocket to Socket. It was the postmen who did it with 18 and 16 mile efforts from Glynn and Si respectively. First class, gentlemen.


Pocket to Socket continue to hold a commanding lead, with 1359 miles completed giving them an overnight stop in Albany, about 140 miles shy of Dallas. The team have sent this photo in, can't quite make out which team member it is but they are clearly very proud of the size of their horn.



Back down the road, Mini Inn are in Anson, arriving just in time for the farmer's auction. They had their eyes on a top of the range tractor, sizeable enough to fit 20 odd runners in to help them close the gap. Tractors went for top dollar though so they ended up with this. Not sure what help that will be but it's commonplace in the online photo's of Anson. They sure love their farming machinery.



So it's the last working day of the work for many of us. Dallas is one day away and Florida is one day closer.
