After more than 12 years of working on county highways, Larry Young can now retire and spend time working on his favorite antique tractors, according to the Abilene Reflector-Chronicle.

Young retired last week as the Dickinson County assistant road and bridge supervisor, and he plans on spending the rest of his days working on his tractors and attending events for his finished products.

The retiree recently attended the Salina Antique tractor event in the small Kansas town. Young noted his passion for the events and for his vintage John Deere vehicle.

"I bought my first one in 1961," he told the Reflector-Chronicle.

Though it was a soggy afternoon for the antique tractor pull, the event participants all brought their machines for the competition. Young traveled to Salina to enjoy his retirement, and he didn't let a little rain ruin his trip, according to the news source.

The Harvest in the Fall Festival in Salina where the tractor pull is held also features sawmill demonstrations, wheat and corn harvesting and local food and fare, according to the event website.
