CCAMA Caravan 2017 Photos

The tractor caravan pulled over after I took the first video. 
Riding in the tractor caravan on a wagon pulled by an Allis Chalmers has always been such fun. I love the slow pace, the wind in my face and the rugged jiggles and bucks of the wagon over the cow catchers. There is time to enjoy the landscapes and let your mind wander.  Taking a picture or a video was a bit shaky though and the view in front and back really did not change much.

This year I took my truck and followed the route of the caravan and took photos and video as they came rumbling up the Minersville Highway.  I stopped several times along the way pulling over to the side of the highway. I would get out of the truck hook my keys to my belt loops, grab my camera, and wait for the sound of the tractor engines. Many times I could hear them before I could see them. I love that sound. After they passed all was quiet. I could hear was the resonance of the earth and the denizens of the valley. 

My first stop was Minersville Highway at Mid Valley Road. I pulled over, got out, and walked around the corner onto the highway to see if they were coming yet. Way off in the distance I could see the flashing yellow lights of the two volunteer sheriff trucks which led the tractors and also brought up the rear. I had time to find my place along the highway and found that the marker stakes made a really good tripod. There was a field of alfalfa and wild sunflowers and the sound of the water spraying over the fields. 

CCAMA Tractor Caravan on Minersville Highway.
As they crossed the intersection they all pulled over. I passed them in my truck and drove to another place by a very picturesque abandoned farm with a rock fence bordering the property (see photo above).

My favorite photos are of the caravan approaching the Parowan Gap.

CCAMA at Cotton Days- Washington, Utah



It was cold dark and windy in Cedar City. On the Way to Cotton Days I saw the dark clouds end and the blue sky begin. You couldn't ask for better weather for our tractor pull. Washington, Utah had beautiful weather.

First Time Driver-Test &Tune 2017

Nicholas Hall First tractor pull at the CCAMA
Test &Tune

Today on CCAMA we are featuring Nicholas Hall.

Nicholas is 10 years old and he is a natural. I wish you all could have been there to see him drive.

His parents Andrew and Kristin Hall were there to sign him up before the tractor pulls began. 


Everyone needs to know the safety rules so Paul Moen gives Nicholas the run down. Nicholas listens carefully...

 Nicholas gets a thumbs up for learning the safety rules.

I do wish you all could have seen Nicholas drive the Case DC.
But if you did't get to see him here is a clip of his first pull.

WORDS WE CAN LIVE BY FROM AN OLD FARMER

Words we can live by
www.ccama.blogspot.com 

“Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.”  
“Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.” 
“Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.” 
“A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.”
“Words that soak into your ears are whispered…....not yelled.” 
“Meanness don't just happen overnight.” 

“Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.” 
“Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.” 
“It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.” 
“You cannot unsay a cruel word.” 
“Every path has a few puddles.” 

“When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.” 
“The best sermons are lived, not preached.”
“Most of the stuff people worry about, ain't never gonna happen anyway.”  
“Don't judge folks by their relatives.  
“Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.” 


“Live a good and honorable life, then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
“Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.” 
“Timin' has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.” 
“If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.”  
“Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.  

“The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.”
“Always drink upstream from the herd.” 
“Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.” 
“Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.” 
“If you  get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.” 
“Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.”


“Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill  you.”



 Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
