Default Twin City 20-35 "Canadian"

Home after an interesting 900 mile pull with this load. Loaded the tractor just east of Edmonton AB.

While there is no such thing as a "Canadian" version of the 20-35 this one has been in Canada long enough to have acquired citizenship there. It will always be a "Canadian" to me.

This tractor has been on the Stak previously.
http://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=137511
Phil Johnson had the good fortune of bringing this one out of the bush. I bought it from him last December. My wife and I decided to wait until the weather moderated before making the trip. Mid June was our first opportunity to head out.

We took Hwy 2 across northern North Dakota and Montana and drove up the east side of Glacier National Park. We entered Canada at the Piegan port of entry. I was asked:
1. Purpose in coming to Canada?
2. Length of stay?
3. Any firearms or tobacco in vehicle?
4. Any Items that will be sold in Canada?
5. Cash in excess of $10,000?
6. Purpose of the trailer?
I explained besides tourism I had purchased a tractor in Dec 2015 in the Edmonton area and planned to haul it back through the Estevan SK port of entry on the way home. I had to verbally confirm that the money transfer had already taken place.
It took us 4 minutes to enter Canada. My wife timed it!

After entering Canada we took Hwy 2 north to Calgary which is quite the metropolis!. From there we spent the next day touring Banff and Jasper National Parks. The splendor of the Canadian Rockies on the loop was spectacular and well worth the time and added miles to go and see.

Pulling the car trailer through the parks had it's limitations as a fair amount of the north bound photo turnouts were too short to accommodate the added length. Also the well used Dodge (366,000) spent most of the day in 4th gear so it pretty much used up a day to drive through the parks. Spent the night in Hinton.

1. Picking up the daily pass when entering Banff Park
2. Some snow flurries and cool temps for mid June!
3. At the Lake Louise visitor center...kind of a midway point.
4. 97 Dodge 3500 converted to single wheels and flatbed w/ Tarnel 21' tilt bed car trailer with winch. The service tank was full when I crossed into Canada. This on board fuel supply was to prove useful for the trip back home loaded.

Thumbs up Re: Twin City 20-35 "Canadian"

Great and wonderful find,

We are nuts about Canadian history tractors.

For more then 20 years we have one from an very old Canadian state park.

Shortly ago found some new info about this make.

Woult be an very nice thread to post an new thread next winter about this tractor with an old blue document.

Keep the info and history coming in.
