You can climb up inside and look out for miles around. On the prairie this isn’t really necessary because if you’re not behind a bush or a building, you can look out for miles around anyway. According to Steve the grain elevator is just a place for rats to live.
I told him it was a landmark. There aren’t as many grain elevators in Saskatchewan as there used to be. The grain elevator is a great way to find his farm. He laughed. According to him prairie people don’t need such obvious landmarks. I think they count roads or look at stone piles.
So he’ll sell me the grain elevator for one dollar, provided I fix it up for about 36 thousand dollars (for insurance purposes).
I’ll have to speak to my accountant.
