Talking South Island Tractor Trek 2010

Hi all.

I've started this 'ride report' so I can post photos and give progress updates for a trip we're about to do.*

As the thread title suggests it's a tractor trip which will be doing a 'not so quick' lap of the South Island. It's a fund raising charity ride to raise money for Child Cancer.

The official website is here. http://www.tractortrek.net/

The trek officially starts in Bluff on Feb 22nd. We're really excited about doing this and can't wait to get cracking. Kiwirob (aka 'Dad') will be driving a David Brown 990 kindly loaned to us by Maurice and Trish Short. (Shown below.)



If you happen to see a convoy of tractors on the road around the South Island between Feb 22nd and March 16 give us a wave and don't be afraid to stop for a chat.

And of course... you will need to stop... to take your gloves off... so you can unzip your pocket... pull out your wallet... and hand over any monies you happen to have on or about your person

It's going to be a fun trip for a great cause, and we can't wait to get started!!.

*Although it's still a 'ride' as it's not on a bike i've been told it can't go in the ride reports section, but should be ok in here.

Fantastic.

When I saw the thread title I thought it was about some old BMW boxers.

Thumb Getting closer...

A little over 3 weeks to go. We can't stop talking about it.

I've been busy pfaffing with the 'support vehicle'. We've built an internal shelf, which will hold a fridge/freezer (so our refreshments don't get cold ), fitted a UHF CB radio, and about to bolt on a honking great big roof rack...

I'm hoping to get some sign-writing done and will post photo's when finished.

Eek Lotsa foties...

Hi everyone...

I didn't realise I had taken so many photo's, but during the tractor trek, I took more than 3,500!

I've just loaded the missing photo's to my smugmug photoalbum, which can be seen here: http://kiwipeet.smugmug.com/TractorTrek

The photo's are organised by day, and each day can have several pages of photo's, so look out for the page numbers in the top & bottom right hand corners.

Cheers

Pete
