We met a group called “ ther Friends of Mr. Tractor” on cruisecritic.com and they invited us to join them in their hi-jinks! Jerry is called Mr. Tractor be cause, apparently, he is a tractor salesman somewhere in the middle of the U.S. He and Barb, and several of their friends, sail together every year or so, and this was one of their years. It was amazingly kind of them to invite us to join their group.
