IN THE FIELD: Rural Road Sightings


A couple of weeks ago I took a drive to the city with my best friend. We decided to run the back roads rather than the major highways. Back roads are way less stressful than running on the amateur race tracks. Besides, by driving the back roads, if you see something of interest and want to stop and check it out, it’s way easier to pull over and explore. Try doing that when other vehicles are zooming past at 50 to 70 miles per hour.

We were only about 15 minutes from our destination, still on back roads when we crested the last hill and lo and behold was the sight you see pictured. This brought out roars of laughter and various uttered reasons for putting the bicycles in the tree. My friend had the funniest one. 

“Well them there bikes are for sale and I just got tired of the gosh darn things constantly falling over in the front yard. So I just hung ‘em up in the tree.”

It just goes to show…you never know what you’ll see out there driving the back roads.

      Yes this is one of the wackiest things I’ve come across in awhile!

    Brilliant! I agree about the back roads and being able to stop when you spot interesting things. 🙂

      Stopping along a major highway is just a wee bit spooky. Plus it tends to draw too much attention from the race car drivers. I prefer to travel at a leisurely pace.

    And you didn’t stop to ask why? lol

      Oh as tempting as it was to knock on the homeowners door I think the reasoning adds to the humor. I was in New York state near Corning one time and drove past a farm where EVERY building and I mean EVERY building was painted Barbie Doll Pink! Why? Don’t know. The mystery remains.

    We might not know the reason, but this looks very interesting.

    Interesting is one way to describe this, although why, or how come, would work. But either way it is quite humorous,

    Someone was trying to turn the tree into the SPOKESperson for the forest.
