I saw him on the N21 the last week, he pulled in to let the cars following him overtake. Not your average caravanner :lol:

I suppose it's less work-intensive than hitching up a couple of horses to pull the caravan. Maybe my two at 32 and 24 are a little old to be towing anything now though. And I don't think I could bear to ask them to tow anything up the hills to Rocamadour. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Stompie, your thread has reminded me of one of my favourite top ten movies, it’s called The Straight Story, if you haven’t seen it, look it up and you will understand why :P.

It's up there in my top 10 too and I thought of it when I saw the guy in his tractor! A wonderful movie.
