Tractor

Box 245, Dawson Creek, B.C., Canada V1G 4G7.

A friend of mine travelled the Mc-Kenzie Highway from Peace River, Alberta, Canada to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. Passing through a small village by the name of Enterprise, some thirty miles south of Hay River, Northwest Territories, he spotted a Model W 20-30 Rumely.

When I received this information, I proceeded to track down the owner, Mr. B. Kapalka who lived in Yellowknife.

Many phone calls later, I got a deal and purchased the tractor.

The next move was to get it home, some 450 miles north of where I live at Dawson Creek, British Columbia, this being a land of great distances.

The old tractor had not run for many years, having a flat crank shaft, among many other things. I have finally restored it to the present condition.

I live four miles from the Mile 0 on the Alaska Highway. Anyone travelling to Alaska or to Rendezvous 92, if interested, can call in to my farm and I will give you a demonstration on my W 20-30 Rumely.

Rendezvous 92 is a 50 year celebration of the building of the Alaska Highway.
