Old Fashioned Tractors Take to the Highway

Posted:
Bismarck, ND -

It's one of those sights that takes you back in time, especially if you have spent any time on a farm...

131 tractors were driving a little slower than the rest of the world, enjoying the 12th annual KFYR Radio Tractor Trek.

Trekkies left Buckstop Junction this morning for a peaceful ride to the McLean Bottoms boat landing then returning to Bismarck on 1804.

Many of these "iron horses" have been restored, others are naturally aged.

The tractor models range from 1939 to 1974.

Organizers say there are several new trekkies this year, but 75% of those here for the ride have done it every year.
