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.”


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


[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.”


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

“Good idea!”
