Tried to look at another house today. (general discussion)

Web pictures looked okay outside, very nice inside.

Google maps satellite view showed the location as acceptable. Rural, but just off major highway, schools and light shopping within a couple of miles.

Price reasonable if they're willing to negotiate a little.

Good so far.

Drove nearly 2 hours to get there. What the web site didn't mention and Google didn't adequately reveal was that in something less than 1/4 mile of (gravel) (I think...) driveway there was roughly 100 feet change in elevation, and it was a ditch-to-ditch slick of ice with a token sprinkle of sand or ash here and there that looked like a 3 year old did it with his beach bucket.

Didn't even try to go up it. Told the realtor the driveway was a deal breaker no matter how nice the house was. Getting the boys up and down that to the bus all Winter was a non-starter.

Good news is, they've found a (to me at least) GORGEOUS place in another town that we'll look at next week.

Hah! We ARE taking our country back. Suck it, Liberal Commies!
