Adventure in Estate Sales, Off Roading and and Chicken Chaseing!
Me and my family headed out to a Estate Sale This past Saturday. It was one of those way off the beaten path. After driving down this quite country road we came to the mail box with the correct address. We look up to see not a house but a very muddy drive way going straight up. So I attempt to drive up it several times and only spin a little ways up. After several attempts the Husband knew he knew just what to do. His strategy was to back up all the way across the road onto another driveway and gun it straight across! Well it works we barely made it to the top. Finally we see the house actually a rather nice big looking house, but their is no yard and mud everywhere. We walked on broads until we got to the house where the owners was asking everyone to take their shoes off . We looked around and asked questions the seller wasnt very motivaed, wanted top dollar for everything. I did manage to purchase some vintage cameras for a decent price. As we were headed back toward the front of the house a big roster walked right in the front door. The man told us of his pet chicken he apparently comes in whenever he wants. Of course my boys loved this and took off after the chicken. I'm really glad they never caught it I'm not sure what they would of done if they managed it! Back in the car we all had to take off our shoes because of all the mud. We proceed to back down the hill. Slipping and sliding we head back down until the car stars to slid to the right, after a few pull ups we are straight again. Until the Husband comes to a stop, I can't see whats behind me. Well its just a driveway back on up so he does. We run right off into a small ditch at the bottom full of mud. To make a Long story shorter lol. The owner had to pull us out of their driveway poor husband was covered in mud. But yea I got some Cameras :D
