Have fun! When the 756 gets up and going I hope to do some tractor riding on it. Got a hitch off a plow when I got the engine last weekend that will become a carry-all for tractor riding.

On Friday the 7th, there is a tractor drive from Clark, SD to RPRU2020.

Can give you a number to call if interested.

Here's a picture of Kal on the ride. Apparently it went right by the farm. I should have jumped on the 45 and joined them, not one orange tractor did I see.

What do you guys do? Just master up a ride and route and then go? Do police escort you? Do you need permits? I’ve never seen a tractor ride.

There wasn't any orange at all which is unusual. I didn't know we were going that way until we left Ashton park.You would have fit right in. The pie and ice cream at the end was great.

This was a local Lions Club fundraiser. Some of the members organized it,they figured out the route. No law enforcement  or permits on this one.On the larger ones they ask law enforcement to help at busy intersections or any bottlenecks. Sometimes they help sometimes they don't. We had 61 tractors today. Some of the larger ones might have 200 to 400 tractors broken into different  speed groups.

I can't get enough of tractor rides. At least once a week I go for 5 miles. Sometimes all day 90 miles on my 300 U. This year I'm using the 504 with the buddie seat. Wife or my daughter sometimes like to go. Our club does a ride most every month during the summer. Fall rides are great as the leaves are turning.

There was some beautiful Red Iron on that ride. I had just crawled out from underneath the combine when I heard a jonny popper. Went to have a look, before I got up to the road the leaders were by. There was a nice Ollie and a bigger Deere, maybe a 4320? Didn't get pics of them but quite a few after them. That 1206 and the 1466 could have pulled in, I'd store 'em.

The 1466 was definitely a very nice tractor but that 1206 standard was a brute!

Do they have this every year? I'd be interested next year if so. Looking for some new rides to go on. Thanks.

Yes they have it every year. I will try to find contact info that way you can get on their mailing list.
