Driving a John Deere 80

, , ,

Okay, like all of you, I am in quarantine. But I am home on the farm and thought I would try to learn something new. I have been reading all types of things people are learning during this #stayathometime. I read of one woman learning target practice, another a type of dance and others even trying to learn new languages while at home. For me though it was a natural to work on my antique tractor driving techniques. Learning to drive a tractor was my try to learn while at home idea!

Learning to drive a tractor

When I saw Keith get out the old 1955 John Deere 80, I had to give it a go. While he coached me, I drove the old girl up and down our drive. I admit to as Keith called it, “riding the clutch”, but I was quite happy with my run. Hopefully in the days to come, I can drive it full throttle!

It was fun driving the John Deere 80 in our drive!

What are you learning?

We have a rare opportunity right now before life gets back to busy. Take that time to do something you always wanted to do whether cooking, learning to drive a tractor, writing, dancing or whatever!. What is your ‘I always wanted to do?’ With the internet almost everything is possible. Make it happen. I’d love to hear all about it.

    It looks like it’d do a wheelie and you’d fly off the back haha! How fun!
