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!!. peet *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.
