Turn-around spot on first dirt road

“I‘d like to turn around and drive up a couple of those roads we just passed. There’s a house for sale on one of them. Is that okay with you?”

“Of course! It would be stupid not to look, as long as we’re here.”

[Taking first of two dirt roads…]

“Look, there’s a sign! But where’s the house?”

“I don’t see anything.”

“I’ll go up the hill and turn around, then come back slowly so we can take another look.”

“If you can find a place to turn around…”

“Okay, now…Still don’t see anything, either. Well, it must be back off to the left, through that gate and past those old cars.”

“[mmmph]”

“I know, never mind. Okay, let’s take the second road. Still good?”

“[mmmph]”

[Taking second dirt road…]

“I think this comes out at the highway…well, maybe!”

“[mmmph] Your call…”

Now which way do we go? Okay, I’ll head down there…”

“I would have gone the other way.”

“No, this is fine. See, it crosses the arroyo! I see other tire tracks, we’ll be all right.”

“[mmmph]”

“Nooo, this isn’t going to work. I think I’ll just turn around.”

“Good idea!”
