On Thursday August 22nd the wolf pack and bear pack of troop 638 went to my grandparents farm (Greg and Nancy Arnzen) to learn about our past. Their farm is over 100 years old. Grandpa showed us a grinder that he uses to chop hay and barley for the cows food. He showed us his combine that he uses to harvest barley and wheat. We climbed on the combine and got to sit in the cab and we climbed up a ladder on one side and climbed down the ladder on the other side. Some day I will get to help my Grandpa during harvest and help with baling hay. We got to see the hay elevator that he uses put hay on top of the barn.We had so much fun. My Grandma gave us brownies and rootbeer. By Zach Arnzen.  In the top photo from left are Zach Arnzen, Cole Martin, Travis Alfrey, Matt Coppernoll and Caleb Butler.
