As an FFA, 4-H, or Grange member, chances are you have spent countless hours in the ag truck, traveling many miles. Those ag truck trips are some of the most memorable and fun. You talk, sleep, and eat in that ag truck at times, making the ag truck one of your favorite places. Here are some of the things that happens in the ag truck:
- Coming to Jesus meetings. You haven’t been doing what you are supposed to be doing, or you aren’t doing enough. These types of meetings are usually where your ag teacher will put you back on the right track.
- Traveling down the road and giving reasons. You have to put as much practice in as you can before competing for state in judging.
- Story telling. Everyone has a story to tell, and when one person shares their story it seems to create a domino effect, and everyone begins sharing their stories.
- It’s been a long trip, and ag trucks make it possible for you to sleep sitting up. Seriously, ag kids can sleep anywhere.
- Tickling someone’s nose as they sleep, ag trips wouldn’t be complete without one little prank.
- Who doesn’t bring snacks for a road trip? The people who bring the snacks are usually pretty popular when they pull out some candy.
- Doing homework. You are missing four days of school to go to convention, chances are you are going to have to do homework driving down the road. It’s not normally fun to do that, but at least you have your chapter members there if you need help on something.
- Taking countless pictures. Sometimes you like to make a memory that will last and you can share with others. Those ag truck selfies are perfect profile pictures.
- Having a sing along. Sometimes you have to just blast the music up and sing along with your favorite song.
- Asking your ag teacher if you are there yet. This is definitely one of those questions you should only ask once or not at all. “Are we there yet? No. How about no? No. When will be there then?”
- Reading raisedinabarn.org, because that’s the blog full of fun stories over FFA, 4-H, and Grange.
I hope everyone makes as many memories as they can traveling down the road in the ag truck.
