It is NOT a road!

We have a very long driveway. In fact, our house can't be seen from the road except in the fall and winter when there are no leaves on the trees. So, as we're new around here, our driveway is a point of curiosity for some people. When we first moved in we'd have people coming up here all the time to check it out; one time we even had an Ohio Highway Patrolman come up here. Scared the poopy out of me!

One night, it was actually 3:30 A.M., an old, wheezing pickup truck came up the driveway. Husband and I were afraid it would stall out, but they managed to get turned around and out of here. What really bit was that our bedroom is at the same end of the house as the driveway, hence the lights were RIGHTONUS.

So, we've been here for almost two years, one would think the people around here would know there's an actual home up here, that our driveway isn't a public road. (It's also pretty damn steep...)

Friday morning I notice someone drove halfway up our driveway and then pulled off to park. Husband didn't find any "debris," but I was afraid of finding,um, er..."used personal items." Nope.

About twenty minutes ago, in broad daylight, some schmuck comes tearing up the driveway, has that "oh crap, it's a house" moment, turns around really fast, and roars out of here.

Now, damn it! Do I have to put up a feckin' gate? Big, neon signs that say "Private Drive NO Trespassing?" People are so g-damn feckin' rude. I wish I knew where they all lived so I could flash my high beams in their bedroom window in the middle of the damn night.

If you live around me and you know what I'm talking about, STAY THE HELL OUT OF MY DAMN DRIVEWAY! Bastards!

Mrs. Groovy,

I'd get me a gate. It's mine, stay off-that's my motto. Oh wait. I don't have a house...darn.

We have kids who think our street is their personal drag racing course. In the winter it's cars, in the summer it's motorcycles, go carts and 4-wheelers.

Husband is right this minute looking at Private Drive signs, so that must mean something.

I wouldn't put a whole lotta faith in the "private drive" signs. People are morons and don't read anyway. The gate sounds like a good idea if it's in the budget. If it's a hassle at least you could open it in the morning and close it when you're in for the night.

You might actually try a "Beware Of Dog" sign. I've heard those are more effective (even if you don't have a dog, or if you have a little weenie dog.)
