Spending most of my camping time in Lancaster County, PA, I am very aware that a tractor or buggy may be right over a hill or around the corner. The people in PA seem to be very patient and deal with this remarkably well.

That tractor Has "Beacon Light,EXtend Blinking Lights,SMV and Is HUGE" How can you Not see it? I have a Lot of "Tractor Time" it is the time of the year to Work Ground,but you have to get there,MOST Farmers are Courteous, BUT they are Not Stupid,if you think they can pull those Big Rigs over for Everybody at Any time,You Pull over in the "Beer Bottle,Muffler, and Whatever Else Berm Area" and Ruin a 1,500+ $$ Tire and all the Down Time,and see how you feel! Youroo!!

Don't be to quick to blame the farmer. I am a mechanic at a ag equipment dealer. You would be surprised how much accident damage we fix from cars that "don't see" the equipment that's 10 times bigger than them.

Just west of me they have antique tractor runs on the back roads. You need to be careful when they are out!
