The driveway..or mudway

15 Mar

The driveway is becoming the usual spring mess. Winter and summer are the best for the unfinished street/drieway, spring is horrible. What was hard becomes 1-4 inches of mud. Still, it is way better then before the driveway and it only lasts for a month so we need to make do. image



The truck is usually fine but it almost got stuck on a usually fine part of the driveway!

The plan in the future is to have a real driveway as part of the private road..but we are unsure as to how far down the private road is going to come as well as if the private road will ever come down this far. It is a temporary driveway that has been in 2 years now. Once all of that is sorted out we will move on to doing more major work like a foundation..we began talking about it in the fall but quicly realized that there would be issues until the road was better..and I also might try to get a shipping container in here for storage if I can find someone to drive one in. In a couple of weeks it should also be solid enough to resume propane delivery again.

    Wow you are really starting to make me glad we don’t have a driveway. When I was little at my parents place, I always wished we had a ski lift so I could ride up the hill instead of walk it.

      and this is the good driveway! It leaves much to be desired but the way I think about it..this driveway is like being on a deserted island where all you ever had to eat was coconuts and snails to eat..then a crate of canned food washes up to give you a variety and when everything is good there are no issues..but the can opener does not work for 2 months of the year! hehe..
