After the family move, Valburg continued school at White River High School and graduated in the class of 1947.After the family settled into their new place Valburg’s father decided it was time to expand his herd.It wasn’t until he was able to leave the passenger seat and pilot the plane himself that the motion sickness halted.As the lessons progressed Valburg’s father purchased a first model Super Cub and it was one of the first three of its kind to come into Jones County.Valburg told that, “I was always a pansy and had to sit in the front seat of the car otherwise I would get car sick.So I wasn’t sure how flying would go.” He began taking lessons in Draper and sure enough the motion sickness hit him every time.There was no roadway to Ring Thunder available at that time so the children put their horses to good use.Valburg shared memories of riding his horse four miles across the Badlands to school everyday, rain or shine.
Valburg attended the Kneville school, a small country school two miles from the family ranch for two grades and the following six years he attended Ring Thunder country school.
After being fully impressed with the convenience of flying, Bill told his son that if he would learn how to fly, he would buy a plane!
And it didn’t take long at all for that idea to take off.
A large livestock sale was scheduled to be held in Nebraska and the easiest way to get there was to fly.
Family friend and local pilot Harold Louder agreed to fly Valburg’s father down to the sale where he purchased 100 head of black angus, the very first of their kind to enter Jones County.The family ranch consisted of 40 acres of crop ground that was cultivated with a team of work horses.
