In the summer of 2009 or 2010, I attended my first “tractor pull“. I had no idea what a tractor pull was at the time, all I knew was that my toddler LOVED tractors and if there were going to be tractors at this pull, we’ll that’s where we were going to be.
The very first we attended was HOT. It was full summer, the fields had been harvested once and the ground was dry and dusty. But OH.MY.GOODNESS was my kid happy! John Deere, Case International, Claas, all the well-known tractors were represented, and some!
There have been to a few tractor pulls in the La Cote are since we first arrived: a few in the rain (not so great) a few in the wind, a few in the sun. The next one is coming up this weekend, 10-11 May 2014 in La Rippe. The forecast suggests it’ll be warm and sunny, so we may just head up into the hills this weekend. Who can forego tractors?
