Around you Come - {Day 03-11} by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

Day 3: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. Late harvesting on Munglinup Beach Road. This movement of the Case IH 8120 harvester caught me by surprise as the operator turned her and went back in the direction she had come from. Most harvesting I have seen in action has always been a more efficient clockwise circling of the paddock.

JCB Fastrac 3185 with Chaser Bin - {Day 07-03} by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

Day 7: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. Late harvesting happening near Jacup. Saw my first harvesting equipment for the ride with this JCB Fastrac 3185 pulling a chaser bin down the South Coast Highway. I assume moving to the next harvesting location as the local farmers work fast to wrap up the season.

Day 9: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. Fours hour after leaving Bremer Bay the storm clouds had gone and the sun was out. Still not enough drying happening to get the harvest going but. This small local farming operation was still on hold for the day when I rode past.

Forage Harvesting - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D2-12 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

A typical small farming operation. This type of farming was pretty common for most of walk where we walked through farmlands. It looks like this farmer is operating a Kuhn mower.

Day 2 of 12 - Le Monastier-sur-Gazeille to Le Bouchet-Saint-Nicolas: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.

Giving Birth - Welger RP220 - Ussel - Chemin de Stevenson - France -2018-D2-26
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Local French farmer baling hay a few kilometres out of Ussel between Ussel and Bargettes. Interesting to see the size of the farming operations here, with this paddock being tiny by Western Australian standards.

CZ 256 TL - St Flour de Mercoire <-> Sagne-Rouse - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D4-17 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

We had now left the forest of Bois de La Garde and was now walking through farm land. I was intrigued by these very small farming operations that we observed all along the Trail.
