    I live on a dirt road during the summer and fall.



    I live on an ice road in the winter and a mud road (or really, really thick river) in the spring!:supergrin:

    I'm the only year-round house on the road, so I have to do the plowing and filling in the pot holes....and the summer folks never so much as offer to help.

    I'm 2.5 miles off the main road, the last 1.2 miles are unpaved.

    My German Shepherd, Buster, thinks this is his dirt road.

    I'm on a dirt road and I hope it stays that way. The NY, NJ and MA transplants came down here and cut down a lot of trees and pushed to pave a lot of roads.....in addition to many other "improvements." Mine is still dirt, but they're pushing to pave an additional 36 miles of roads in my community to make it more like the places they left from.

    I don't know if you read the article in the fish wrapper or not, but if you're on one of the dead end roads, you should stay dirt (at least for now). A few friends of mine out there with horses are pretty pissed, too.

    I just looked at the PB Post and sure enough, no dead end roads (first I've seen that mentioned). I guess that makes me safe for a little bit. Hopefully the horse people will organize and put a stop to this. They used to have a lot of political clout out here and pretty much got their way.

    5.3 and 1.1 for me. My neighbors and I like to keep it rough. It keeps the non-residents away and our road expenses down. Way down. :supergrin:
