We drove to the really nice planning building in the county seat to submit our proposed name for our road. We dealt with very nice people and filled out forms and wrote a couple of checks and smiled and everything is just ducky. When we go back to pick up the fresh brand new road signs, we will have to bring along a red flag to attach to the 12-foot-long post on which the two road signs we are buying will sit. (We opted to install the road signs ourselves.) The red flag warns other motorists to stay away from the pole which will stick at least six feet out behind the bed of the pickup truck as we haul our brand new shiny road name signs up the hill to be installed at the intersection of the old, named road, and our shiny newly-named road.
To celebrate, we ordered a pizza and bought a six-pack of really good handmade ale to take home.
Not counting pizza and beer and gasoline and our time, naming our road has so far cost about $250.
