This isn't a commercial for anything, just an info post.
I'm not connected in any way with the radio station or any tractor club that sponsors this. The details are on WMTradio,com, they have been sponsoring these for ten years or so. They show the routes for the ride. I don't think you can join in unless you were pre regestered. I've never attended a driver's meeting, but I think they are pretty srict about alcohol, show off driving, staying in line, no passing, etc. they want to keep the sheriff happy too. I was on a tractorcade or two several years ago when fifteen or twenty tractors was a big deal, but can't participate anymore because of health reasons.
This ride is based in Decorah, Iowa and goes for three days starting this Monday the 14'th of June with nearly 600, yes 600 tractors registered to participate. There may have been bigger ones somewhere else, but I never heard of one with that many tractors. the ride goes right past our house on Monday so I plan to be in the front yard to enjoy the show. Several friends of mine are planning to be in the ride so maybe I can cheer them on their way past. Frank.

KT;
At one time one of the boys helped me post some pictures, but I just never caught on, guess I was born a few years too early for all this computer stuff. I did take as many pictures as I could and don't even know how to get them from the little chip thing into the computer yet.
I ended up helping our local town group by pulling a little parade wagon of mine around the grounds with the Gator giving rides to anyone who needed or wanted a ride while they stopped in groups of fifty or more for lunch. Someone donated the use of a lot of golf carts too that helped move people around.
The radio station people had things really well organized where groups of fifty or so came evey 30-45 minutes to make better use of the lunch and restrooms that our town group had set up for them in a real orderly manner.
I really don't have an actual count, but the registration numbers on the tractors went beyond 700. There were some cancellations too, but even with that there would have easily been over 600. Quite a sight, there was everything from very well done home made to factory mades of every age that would have put a showroom tractor to shame.
Our little town has a population of about 700 which would have easily tripled today with all the people who came out to see the tractors.
Frank

Frank, I got cell phone with internet on it this year. Best thing that ever happened to be for emailing pictures. I snap and email it directly from the phone. No downloading, no chip to unplug and insert...made for me...simple. Like a manual transmission.

KT;
The weather for yesterday's first day of the three day ride was "Iffy", on and off drizzle. A fellow who rode a bit with me in the Gator had a cell phone with live weather radar, your's has internet, wow what next.
The last couple cell phones I've had lasted a couple years so I'm guessing the one I have now is about to go kaput on the two year pattern, so maybe the latest for me next time.
And yes, I still like manual shift's to in a pickup but my clutch leg is kinda kaput.
Rain, rain, rain, pouring here again, time for some sunshine.
Frank.

Franky it sounds like it's time to get a "hydro" (ouch) automatic trans pickup!

EW'
I'm still a pretty basic pickup truck buyer, standard cab, work truck type, and would have loved to continued with the manual transmission but finally I gave in on the last one and do have a "Mushbox" tranny now.
After some of the other peoples leftover junk pickups I drove in the past just new and basic are all I want or need.
Now a "Hydro" on a tractor, you know better than that, I'll push the clutch with my teeth, (all seven of them), before I'll give in on that one.

EW, the difference between Frank and people like you and me is we may get older but he is a classic.
