last Sat we went on a 45 mile tractor ride. 2 of my grandsons Kyle & Kenny went with me . I borrowed 2 tractors from friends and away we went. We erove about 15 miles and had a rest stop and 1 of the tractores would not start, so we trailered it back, and my grandsons went on the rest of the way. I was able to spend time with them even though my tractor was nor running.I went on back as they started the last leg of the trip and took one of my GT's out to the front gate to meet them and here they came with number 2 of the 3 tractors in tow. The first one to go down the starter stuck and after we trailered it back someone told me to put it in high geaar and pull it bakwards snd that worked,so it is ok now. the other tractor broke the alt. belt, that is replaced now. We had a good time in spite of the problems.Some pictures of the trip

Nice rides!   :thumbs:

 

Tractor "cruises" are getting to be a big thing with the shows in the Mid-west.  I did a few when I had the "Two-Cylinders", trouble was, at that time they were usually around 70 mile/day in 90-100 degree weather!  I think many of them have cut the distance recently.  ~~  Lowell

That's really cool.  Good looking tractors and a very capable set of drivers there.  Thanks.

As it was 19 degrees below above zero this morning, I have to say that seeing you in just a shirt made me jealous.  Really jealous.

 

Would a tractor ride be as fun looking like an eskimo?

You get one of those plug-in heated snowmobile suits and you have LOTS of fun!
