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.
