This year for prom, he knew exactly how he wanted to ask his girlfriend. With the help of his dad, the two men without using any GPS or other mapping technology, eye-balled the plan and Ryan Hazeltine took to a field driving the tractor, pulling the harrow to spell out the word in massive letters stating “PROM”. Ryan Hazeltine covered the entire field with that four-letter word PROM.
