THE MAN

C. Ivan Stoltzfus is an auctioneer and real estate broker, as well as a retired farmer. He divides his time between Honey Brook, PA and Sarasota, FL. Ivan grew up farming with John Deere tractors and loved the sound of the 2 cylinder engine. He dreamed of a cross country adventure on an old John Deere tractor to see the United States of America and to raise funds for a special mission. We are a 501(c)(3) " Non-Profit " please see our sponsorship page.

THE MACHINE

A 1948 John Deere Model A will serve in 2016 as the great machine for the long journey as it did in 2014. With the help of a tractor club, Waterloo Boys of Southeastern Pennsylvania, the tractor was restored and then retrofitted with a 1984 Peterbilt model 359 cab. This tractor certainly has a unique look! It will be towing a 24' camper donated by Stoltzfus RV of West Chester, PA. We are a 501(c)(3) " Non-Profit " please see our sponsorship page.
