Our guests have used unique modes of transportation in the past few weeks. Two weeks ago a couple arrived by bike – having parked their car at the trail head in Houston (32 miles away). They packed their clothes in saddlebags and rode the bike trail to Lanesboro. On Sunday they biked back to their car, showered and drove home.
On Friday Lanesboro was visited by over 172 farm tractors on the North Iowa Tractor Ride.
Tractors of all sizes and vintages participated in a scenic ride through South East Minnesota. Old tractors like “Johnny Poppers, IH Farmalls, Fords, Allis Chalmers, Minneapolis Molines and Olivers were included in the group. My Dad would only drive Case tractors when I was a kid and there were 2 of them among the tractors on the ride.
Breakfast had to be early for this group. We normally serve breakfast at 8:30. The farmers rose early and enjoyed muffins, an egg bake, sausage, fried potatoes and fruit for their 7AM breakfast.
By 8AM the first group hit the road with fresh home made bread to sustain them on their sunny ride back to Cresco, Iowa.
Many of the farmers promised to bring their wives back for a visit in the future. We hope they do.
