The Travelling Jackaroo Tractor Maintenence&repair

G’day all! My name is Sam Hughes, I'm 17 years old and next year from February 2021, I’ll be driving my fully restored Chamberlain 9G tractor around Australia towing a 6.5m long trailer with a plane mounted on the roof. The trip will be fundraising for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Lights on the Hill Trucking Memorial and more pending. The trip will be a long one with many ups and downs, so this fund is set up to keep the tractor and trailer on the road (not as a donation page for the charities) and to cover any mechanical issues or other problems I may encounter on the road and throughout the journey. These issues could be anything from a new starter or punctured tyre to a catastrophic engine repair, as at its core this is a 50 year old tractor taking upto a 13,500km trip on rough dirt roads. The support from this will help greatly in keeping this trip on the road, getting the word out and fundraising for these charities all around Australia. You can check out the Facebook page @thetravellingjackaroo if you'd like to learn more about this awesome journey and follow along. Any and all support is greatly appreciated to help bring this dream of mine to life!
