Annual Tractor Ride
For the past few years, a local group of guys put on an Annual Tractor Ride at the end of August that travels around Shelby County.
The tractor ride’s route varies from year to year. Taking different back roads, stopping in various towns, parks, and attractions along the drive.
This years ride came by our neck of the woods, so I decided to take a few pictures of the festivities.
That’s my Uncle Billy leading the pack.
Hey…. Are you supposed to be talking on the cell phone and driving at the same time?
Like maybe you should watch where you are going?
The Annual Tractor Ride brings out all of the local characters.
(Don’t you be shaking your finger at me!)
The ride also makes sure to include all shapes and sizes.
Of tractors I mean!
There was John Deere.
Tractors that have been well worked.
And well loved.
The ride was full of neighbors
That’s not a tractor!
It’s Chelsea and Dad in the “repair” truck.
None of these tractors are without their quirks and sometimes they need some extra love along the way.
So it’s best to bring along all the tools and gear that may be needed.
It was the perfect way to spend a late summer afternoon along an old gravel road.
Every tractor and driver has a story to tell. Would
love to sit and listen to each one. Nice pictures.

That they do Gene! Each one is special.
