Here's a look at the 2nd Annual Old Iron Trail Ride,
Saturday, May 18, 2007.

Douglas Haass (above) and Kenneth Adlong (below)
are the reason this ride happens each year, because of the
love for their granddaughters Casey & Krista and old tractors!

Mr. Haass leads everyone in prayer for a safe and fun day!

This is how our Make-A-Wish kid Krista Spiller traveled when she wasn't on the tractor
with her grandfather Kenneth Adlong or her mom (below)

Jack and Carol Fair of Lake Hills head out behind the leader.

On to Moore...

gotta take a rest break...those seats do get hard...

then to Big Foot...

The Adlong Deeres (l-r)...Kolby, Kenneth, Krista, Kathy, Kristi and Kim!

The sweet ladies who made sure the Museum was open for our riders.
Thank you ALL so very much, you're the best.
Check out their website!

Back to Devine for lunch thanks to Fred Morales (below)

Thanks Fred and Katherine's Catering of Devine for the awesome lunch
at the Devine Community Center.

Make-A-Wish representative Jonathan Akin, Krista Spiller (granted a wish in 2003)
and the Old Iron Trail Ride's best friend Fred Morales take a break at lunch for a picture together.

Showing off their rides...

and

The Sugar girls, that is our mascot Sugar and her family, Frances and Shelly!

At lunch time it was decided to change the route a bit and visit a part of Medina County History
that was soon be replaced, the Biry Bridge, one of the last OLD bridges in M.C.

On the way to the bridge...

after a short rest break from the drive out from Devine

back-roading at it's finest

Last ride across the old bridge with old tractors

A view from the bottom of the creek up to the bridge, quite a distance!

 

From everyone on the ride this year, we had a ball and can't wait to ride again and raise money for the Wish Kids!

The End, for this year...until 2008!


With 16 tractors and an old truck,

$2600 was made and was donated to

The Make-A-Wish Foundation

of Central & South Texas
