She Is Amazing! Watch ‘Tractor Girl’ Make It to the South Pole

‘Tractor Girl’, whose real name is Manon Ossevoort, has driven by tractor to her dream destination – the South Pole.

As the above video shows, she and her team drove across the icy terrain non-stop for over a week utilizing the 24 hour sunlight of the Antarctic summer to cover more than 2000 km to make their destination by their deadline.

The expedition took three years of planning and preparation.

The 38-year-old former actress and mom of one looks right at home in her red Massey Ferguson MF 5610, and so she should:

She has already traveled tractor style across Europe and Africa.
