We have a member that we could classify him as ' the modern day mailman'-through sleet-snow-rain and hail and that is Brian. Over the past week he left his comfortable home in Texas and travel to the N.E. area of the U.S. going from day light to dark many days and delivering just about any part from a whole tractor to parts for these tractor all for the love of our hobby and the friendship with many of these members. If you haven't read any of the post, you need to take the time to read all the entries. I did not see any complaining on his part on any given time or day. It reads as many of these members just knew each other through the exchange of words in the form by helping each other repair their lawn equipment and the selling of them. One thing unique to these tractor is a majority of these tractors are of an older vintage which makes the hobby interesting, and a majority of this equipment is used daily and if it should stop operating the owner will will attempt to get it back in serviceable condition and that is the point where the membership of the forum comes into play if need be.
It should be noted that the age of this group ranges from the teens to some in there 70's and some having failing health, but yet they sometimes meet when possible for tractor related items like a tractor pull contest with membership being in all 50 states and other countries, like Canada and across the big ponds.
One of the members had started that the outstanding member had travel approximately 5000 miles in 6 or so days.
