Making Tracks

Like this big Fendt tractor, I will be making tracks for the back forty for the next few weeks. I will be travelling and will have no access to computers, e-mail or the internet. I should have a lot to report on my return however, so stay tuned.
Fendt is now in common ownership with that once noble Canadian tractor the Massey Ferguson (formerly Massey Harris Ferguson, Massey Harris and before that just Massey) Both parent Agco and Fendt have their own websites. See:
For an excellent refresher course in the Massey brand see:
The ins and outs of this world power house involves some famous (and infamous) names and several of the world's largest and best known brands. Fascinating reading!

Volvo camper gets a wet start

This German based Volvo camper is off to a wet start on a North American vacation. However the AWD model 340 with Action Mobil body appears to be ready for anything. It has a sturdy brush bar up front and lots of supplementary lighting. (I count eight extras!)
Mercedes and MAN seem to be the most popular chassis for these 4x4 campers. I think this is the first Volvo I have seen.
