Anywho, I decided to put up a sign to let people know it was private property. I think it was The Old Lady that got the sign and I had a metal post to put it on. I put it next to the road at about where the property line is, where the county road ends and my driveway begins. Never noticed any less traffic, in fact, there might have been an increase.
Since the first sign didn't solve the problem, decided to put up another sign, the one below.
That didn't even slow them down. For a time I thought about getting a sign from the Gempler's catalog that said in Spanish, "Caution these monkeys bite" in case they couldn't read Inglais.
Instead I made my own sign and at first used some small poles to make a tri-pod and attached the sign to it and placed it in the middle of the road. The sign is below and all three are now on the same signpost.
After putting the sign in the middle of the road, I found out it wasn't that they couldn't read, it was that they didn't know how to back up their vehicles. I found tracks where they had turned around on the one lane driveway!!
Later I attached my hand painted sign to the signpost, and it seems to be known over quite a wide area. Sometimes when I give directions to my place, I'll hear, "That the place with the Stay The ____ Out sign??" Also, I don't think we have been bothered by Jehovah's since I put up the last sign.
This Summer The Old Lady said I should cut down the weeds that were growing up and hiding the bottom sign, the one saying Stay******Out. Most of the stuff growing in front of the sign were blackberry vines and if the moose don't eat them I may get some blackberries next year, so I left them alone and besides most people know about the sign and stay out now.
