Hi Richard. I don't know about driving a tractor to Canada but remember George Jones drove his lawnmower to the liquor store to buy booze because his wife hid the keys to all the cars. I also heard he stopped and mowed a couple of yards on the way to get beer money. But I can't prove that one.I saw a film years ago, how a fellow rode his John Deere lawnmower right across the US to visit his brother. So, Anything is possible! (and you'd be most welcome.)
That was mentioned in the Vince Gill song "One More Last Time". I used to play in a band and one of Georges guitar players used to sit in with us ever once in a while. Heck of a country picker too. He said he was with George in the bus when George accidentally shot his pistol off in the bus. He mentioned "it was loud".
If I ever make up near the far north again I will get in touch with you. Thanks a bunch.
