'Tractor Dave' Comes Home

“Tractor Dave” Wolfsen will arrive in Ludington, Michigan, tonight in comfort—on the deck of the Lake Michigan car ferry, the S.S. Badger. After spending the summer driving a 1937 Co-Op tractor through the Eastern and Midwestern United States to raise funds and awareness for two non-profit organizations, Wolfsen will begin the final leg of his journey in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, when he boards the S.S. Badger at 3 pm, and welcome supporters and fans on arrival at the Ludington dock at 7 p.m., EDT.

Tractor Dave Takes a Detour

“Tractor” Dave Wolfsen’s travels around America this summer took an ironic turn when he had to make a detour around a natural disaster. Since June 1, Wolfsen has been driving his restored 1937 Co-Op farm tractor through the eastern and midwest U.S. to raise funds and awareness for the disaster response programs of the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC) and the Foods Resource Bank.
