Awesome! Can you imagine both the skill and the hours spent practicing that.

Thanks for sharing!

Those folks are from Nemaha Iowa. They started doing this around 1998 or so. They call it the "Farmall Promenade". I think that they retired about a year or so ago. They took this on tour and even were on the David Letterman show. They spent a lot of money restoring their tractors, and bought a semi and trailer to haul them all over. They also spent tons of hours practicing. I think that the caller is a distant relative of mine( I grew up south of Nemaha.) Needless to say, there is NOTHING to do in Nemaha.

Hey D-Dogg some of us local Deere collectors have discussed something similar using our garden tractors. We would need tractors with steering brakes to make it work. There is also a video on a zero turn drill team I saw somewhere that looked like a lot of fun to do during a parade.

Deereman, that sounds like a blast.

There's Theo and I with 318s, and a fellow named Rob I've traded a few emails with who has a 420 and lives in Fredericksburg. Then there's Glockem up in Manassas. I have a 318 driving neighbor.

I was wondering about getting a dozen or so guys to think about the Spotsy Christmas parade. We always do ours in the daytime and more or less take a backseat to Fredericksburg, so there's plenty of room for paraders.
