Up and down
The former vocational college head rode almost 1,700 km through Germany. He set off from Eggenthal in the middle of May, travelling via Augsburg, Bamberg, Dresden, Berlin to the Darß, a peninsula on the Baltic Sea, with many stops in between. After 25 stages, his journey came to a close. During his 50-day journey, he visited imposing castles, towns, camp sites, farms, idyllic lake landscapes and forests, and the former East-West border. “My Fendt was always my faithful companion along the route,” says Remigius Kirchmaier. “Even the Thuringian Forest and Franconian Forest national parks with some extremely steep climbs were a piece of cake for the tractor, and nor did the Ore Mountains (Erzgebirge) pose a problem.” He bought the 1964 tractor from a farmer seven years ago. Since then, the vintage vehicle has proven its worth both as a utility vehicle as well as a road trip vehicle.
