So it finally happened. After months of joking that my biggest concern with taking the back roads was getting caught behind a tractor, the other morning I found myself in a line of cars creeping along at 20 mph behind a very large John Deere toting some sort of oil tank or canister. The sad thing was, I wasn't even on the back roads. I was simply driving through Lincolnton trying to get to 27.

I suppose it's a good thing I had made my peace with lane changing and wasn't in a rush or feeling anxious because there was no way to get around the slow moving behomoth until we reached the intersection with Main Street (yes - we have a Main Street) at which point John Deere turned right and I turned left.

And if that ain't country, I'll kiss your....
