Yes, we are and we like it that way.
Many times as folks drive our 1/4 mile driveway that winds its way through the property, past the pond and then up the hill to the pottery they come in as if they have sailed the ocean blue.
"Boy", they will say, "you are really back here".
Yes, we are and we tend to get the more adventurous types, people who are not afraid of the path less traveled.
When we first opened in 1982 we were one of the first shops off the highway and it was not unusual for us to get even more people. I think back then folks were not as worried about their cars. Cars did not cost the price of a house and we saw all sorts of cars in all sorts of conditions. They were in for the adventure.
Granted we do have a long driveway and, yet, to me it is not that long or difficult to navigate. For the most part drivers will pull over to make room for others to pass. Our policy is to pull off if it is us and there are several places that make it easy to do so.
Now the real issue in this post is POTHOLES.
You can not have a long dirt driveway without them, they just come with the territory.
We tried to start an adopt a pothole program where you can send money to maintain your pothole, we will even name it after you,but no takers on that one.
We do admit to at times being lax about getting them taken care of but we are on it now.
|Hollis- this one if for you. Mark said he would rather be digging for clams.||Note- hat|
Having the right equipment, weather and materials helps with the process. There has been just enough rain to help, cooler temperatures in the mornings to get out and work, and time.
Would you like to take a guess at the cost of gravel? (or gravels as they say here).
Don't ask it is a bit like just throwing money down a (pot) hole.
We are about through making pots. I am loading a bisque, waiting for pots to dry and rolling more tiles.
