Not sure what your plans are, but if it looks like you'll be in South Carolina mid January, drop me a PM. Got a spot set aside for you in my camper at a little dual sport ride my club puts on...

So while you blokes have been flogging your keyboards & my RR, I've been doing some riding.

I stopped in today at an old museum for agricultural equipment, as I grew up on a wheat sheep farm in central NSW about 300 miles west of Sydney, I couldn't resist riding past this.

While I was snooping around all the Canadian & American equipment I said to myself "I bet they don't have a Lanz Bulldog " as my father used to own one.

Well bugger me they had two.



these things would just abut run on anything including sump oil. I remember dad jerry rigging a magneto for spark with a windscreen washer motor. I you ran them too slow or too lower revs when pulling they would run backwards. I still remember the rumbling sound they made as a kid.

This versatile 1080 was supposedly the worlds biggest articulated farm tractor at 600hp
More to follow

Here's some more pictures for you guys to curse at.

The bloke that used to Iive here was a famous entomologist.


I stayed somewhere in Canada near this heritage site, but after setting my tent up got a terrible fright from an extremely loud bang and some more after that.


I sat there thinking WTF was that. knowing it was farm land around me led me to think they were from scare guns to shoo the birds from the crops. But they often got very loud till I felt the ground under my feet shake. I thought may be it mining, only till I pulled out yesterday did I realise ta I camped near Canada's artillery base "Shilo" . The were from 120mm guns and 500 pounders that the aircraft I could were in the distance dropping on the live fire range.

Most if the terrain here in the prairies is flat grain farming area with not a lot to see.



Some more of the farm museum.
