Disclaimer: This post is with great apologies to the team who worked on the campaign for the new Gator that Deere just introduced. You'll notice I had a different model entirely. I just couldn't pass on such a catchy headline.
With that said, my Gator adventure.
Except for the bumps.
And the dust.
And the not-quite-dry spots.
And did I mention the bumps? With as wet as it's been this year, the farmer did have a few spots that weren't quite dry when the combine rolled through, leaving some ruts. It didn't slow down the guys in the tractor, but it about shot me out of the driver's seat of the gator.
And a Gator's engine is louder than the sound a lost walkie talkie makes when you drive through a field.
Which means walking. Plenty of walking, for the driver and the poor unsuspecting film crew who happened to be along for the ride.
Incredibly, we did find it. One of the crew members heard it chirping while we walked and was able to follow it back to where it had fallen out.
