Jewels Journal – Arriving in Drayton, North Dakota for the Sugar Beet Harvest

TJ is going to work the Sugar Beet Harvest this year in Drayton, North Dakota. We arrived yesterday afternoon and checked into the campground. There are less than 1000 people that live in this town. We couldn’t find a library and the boys have no coverage on their Sprint phones.


It is a pretty park with hook ups for electricity and water. They said the Honey bucket would come around to dump our sewer. There is no club house but the play ground and fields are great.


This is what the people before us left in the fire pit. It looks like they were trying to melt their beer bottles. Caps were tossed all around the campsite.
We went to the orientation and TJ had to fill out a lot of paperwork and watch a movie. I overheard some other people talking about another location so I asked TJ to ask the woman in charge if we could perhaps move to that location. She said, “Why would you want to move?” He said he thought it would be better for his wife and kids to be in a bigger town with a library. She said, “Oh yes, you’re right.”
We went back to the RV, packed it up and headed to Grafton, North Dakota.
On the way there, TJ received a call from the company and was told that he would start tomorrow. So far, they have him working the day shift but things change quickly around here. We drove by the location for his training tomorrow and I snapped a quick photo.
We made a stop at the Hugo’s (grocery store) and stocked up on a ton of fruits and vegetables.
We made a quick stop at the post office and found out our mailing address for the next month. Here it is in case you want to send us some love in the mail.

I will be up bright and early tomorrow (6:30am) to take TJ to his first day of training. I will report back as often as I can. Comment below if you have any specific questions about this income opportunity with the Sugar Beets or any other questions regarding living on the road!
Much love to you and yours.
