Tomorrow, Doris & moi will start our trip to lucky Luxemburg. GATOR and BAMBY are ready to go and the tour next day will bring us to the Gülser Moselbogen, 125 miles away. But most important and good news is: weather will be fine next days :yahoo:

Will you be driving the Gator 125 miles?
Sure, Blake. Therefore we've bought the GATOR. We started this morning at 8 a.m. and than we drived and drived... and had 25 miles more because of detours ... But after 7.5 hours we reached the first travel destination - a caravan site at the river Mosel, near Koblenz here in Germany. And now we'll go to the restaurant :thumbup1gif:

Wow! That's a heck of a drive in a Gator. Is it common for people to use them on such long distances there?
No, you will not find many GATORs here in D - and normally we drive this distances with our tractors... :good2:

So, we've finished 450 km (280 miles) and tomorrow we'll start back home again 350 km. And when we're home again, the roundtrip distance was 800 km (500 miles) with the Gator 550 and BAMBY.

Does the Gator have special tires? Stock ones look like they would wear out real fast in road service with those kind of miles.

No, I use the normal turf tires they sell here in D - now more than 385 hours. And I think, they'll stay up to 500 hours or more.

Home again and everything is all right!

The route planner generated 700 km for the round trip - without all the detours we had to drive. The detours were more than 70 km and we drove 120 km in Luxemburg - not at last to see a very special tractor collection! Next days I'll post some pics - but tomorrow I've to go to work and so it's time to sleep...

Like promised before, I'll post some photos

2011-08-31 18-14-14.jpg Five years ago, we drove with our Johnnies to Luxembourg.
k-DSCN2923.JPG This year, our journey was more comfortable. Here we are near Koblenz, at the river Mosel.
k-DSCN2930.JPG Guess, what's our camping place.
k-DSCN2941.JPG BBQ - every evening. I hate bbq!

Nico Roeder invited us, to visit his personal collection. He's collecting all brands, the principle thing is that the tractor is rare.
