Do You Think I'll Melt In Brazil?

I'm heading to Brazil for a 12 day trip with the Illinois Soybean Association.

Tomorrow I take off for Brazil. I'm representing Farm Progress Companies on a trip with a delegation from the Illinois Soybean Association.

To prepare for the trip I did all the usual things -- packing, making sure I had everything on the list, etc. I also took one last ride on the snowmobile around the farmstead where I live and work outside of Fargo. I promptly buried the the snowmobile in a drift back in the shelterbelt and spent around two hours digging it out. By the time I was done, I had snow from head to toe and must have looked like a snowman.

Which brings me to the first thing I expect to learn about Brazil -- will I melt? It's going to be 93 degrees in Sao Paulo, our first stop, this weekend. It's going to get down to about -20 below in Fargo.

Stay tuned. I let you know if I warm up.
