All those people following behind you are jealous wishing they had a TT and thinking of all the fun family time they could be having if they had one. If they aren't thinking that, they should be!

Don't worry about it. I feel the same way about backing my rig into a camping slot. The folks on the campground road can just turn the engine off and listen to the radio for a while as I maneuver my trailer SAFELY into place. I'm the one who invested all the hard earned money into it and I'll be darned if I'm going to damage it trying to rush myself so somebody can drive around the loop sooner. They can wait.

You think that bad, try getting stuck behind a combine or another farm implement, they are usually so large that they are nearly impossible to pass

I know what you're talkin' about! Here in the rural areas, I've seen combines so wide you literally have to pull off the road to let them by!

To the OP..... I'm right there with ya! But I think safety first vs. speed! That and plus the fact I'm still new at this pulling a TT thing, so I will tend to be more cautious than usual.

Chuckle, Chuckle! Life on the farm! We live on a semi-large farm (beef cattle) and I've learned to be very patient. To me, this living is heaven to me! I live on a narrow country road that has NOT deer crossing signs, but cattle crossing signs!!! Love it!

Rule #1 Never complain about farmers with your mouth full.
Rule #2 Remember the "big boat" rule. The bigger boat makes the rules.
Rule #3 Crank up the song International Harvester by some country singer.
Rule #4 Be patient. Your on vacation...no need to hurry.

To clarify, I wasn't complaining about farmers, I'd love to be a farmer, I was making the statement to the OP that the people behind him could have it worse

We know you weren't! Just giving us a comparison that I can truly relate to.
