Default Baraboo mixing the old with the new

At our show I was approached to see if someone’s daughter could drive my 1909 IHC FRICTION DRIVE TRACTOR. I said “Sure”. Here are some pictures with a video coming once we can get it to load from her Dad. She was driving it on her OWN! What a natural as you can tell by the smile on her face, almost as big as her Dad’s. By the way she is only 12 and the tractor is 110 years old.

Good for her!
I think giving young people opportunities like that are crucial if we are to generate continued interest in our hobby and our shows. There was a young family at our local show that showed some interest in my 18-36 Hart Parr. I took the father and his two boys for a spin while Mom took pictures. They had a blast.

Don

I commend you for making that happen. This is one of the primary ways to hook young folks and get that grease, oil and rust into their veins. If we all do the same thing we will have lots of young folks in the hobby.

We had the same experience at Baraboo! A young gent that has taken a liking to old iron had a little IHC engine that he and his dad restored but just couldn't get it running. I told him to bring it along to the show and we'd help him with it. An older friend of mine that was showing alongside of me helped him with it while I was tending to my engines in the building and they had it running when I came back. It's been a long time since I saw a smile that big! It made for a great weekend! Jason

Jason, I thought Jim Wheeler was younger than you? By the way isn't that Jim W. Big IHC in the BIG ENGINE SHED in Baraboo I saw him running?

We have a young guy that seems to turn up at the show with a different gal every year, this year he had one that helped pitch oats bundles. Turned out she was a visitor and she just wanted to help him, I suppose.:
His regular girlfriend showed up shortly later and I saw no sign of the other gal at that time.

Hello all,
There has been some tension surfacing with numerous threads in the last decade producing concern for the survival of the hobby.

I believe this thread contains the most important activity to pass on to future generations. Most young folks will enjoy the opportunity to drive any kind of antique tractor. Many of them never get the chance to engage in these early forms of conveyance that leads to understanding and promotes learning about how tractors were used in our agricultural, industrial and military history.
I have taught several young people how to plow with vintage rope-trip units. They love it and are hooked on the hobby thereafter!
Good going guys, get these youngens behind the wheel

Our Moderator is working on posting the video taken by the Dad and should be posting it soon. I would like to hear more stories about being a Mentor to the “New” generation to get them involved in this hobby. I am seeing more families involved and participating at shows now than ever before.

When I get all three into one I'll republish the new one here.
