From the Oct. 8, 2012, Irish Central "Five Irish farmers ride Route 66 from LA to Chicago" by Antoinette Kelly.
Kevin Curran's "Bets," a 1963 Fordson Dexta tractor left Los Angeles on October 7th and plans to drive 2,500 miles to Chicago. He figures on fifteen days.
He has made other treks in Ireland, but none this long.
He and the others are raising money to fight cancer for the Irish Cancer Society.
Good Cause, Great Fun. --RoadDog
