The ol’ driveway-full-of-wheelbarrows trick

August 2nd, 2010

I'm not falling for that again.


  1. Connie says:

    That sure is a strange sight to behold.
    Maybe kids are practicing their bike-riding inbetween them???

  2. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Nah, I’d guess to say it’s a way for the owner to stop people from pulling into his driveway/lot and turning around. Either that or this is his clever way of marking his “lanes” in the gravel. !! ha ha.

  3. Candice In Alabama says:

    Matt – this is the strangest yet!

    • Candice In Alabama says:

      Is it the wheelbarrow graveyard (you know….like the elephant graveyard in Tarzan movies)?

  4. deb says:

    I think Matt needs to start knocking on doors and asking “Why?” every time he sees something odd along the road. Wait…he probably wouldn’t get very far if he started researching American weirdness. Never mind, Matt. Just keep sharing the oddness and we’ll use our imaginations.

    • Jeff says:

      then he would never make it to the end. He is a adventurer….not a scientist…..but then he is a engineer…..Why? Why matt, Why? When in doubt…live Vicariously.

  5. Lois says:

    Maybe it’s a landing strip for a tractor?!?!

  6. hks says:

    Maybe this is where you play “musical wheelbarrows” with potato sacks. The last standing sack gets shipped to Micky-D’s :)

  7. Jim in AR via MN says:

    Come on everybody…it’s plain to see…anyone who understands wheelbarrows knows this one…it’s as plain as the nose on your face…anybody can see the purpose in this…I imagine you are all just kidding about not knowing…so I won’t bite…I refuse to play your game…you are trying to get someone say the obvious…I will not get involved in this ruse…

    Okay, for those of you who really don’t know…don’t tell the rest…they will be all pompous about it…(you see when it rains…water collects in wheelbarrows…and to get the water out…you must tip them on their side…it must be the right side…or you will not do it correctly…and you will notice that one of them is upright yet…that one, well, that one has a hole in it)…there you made me do it…hope you are satisfied!!!…

  8. Saun in Ohio says:

    Barbara to funny and I really hope that’s not Matt’s road out of town.
    Jim- ha ha

  9. Don in Tennessee says:

    These wheelbarrows are here to keep people from BARROWING THEIR WHEELS down this persons driveway at a high rate of speed. A self imposed speed limit without the sign.

    Looks like it would be a barrow of fun.

    Maybe even a WHEEL OF BARROW OR FORTUNE – Where is Vanna?

  10. Robert says:

    Clearly they were put there thousands of years ago by aliens.

  11. Janine says:

    Well, what else are you gonna do with all those extra wheelbarrows you have just lyin’ around collecting dust?

  12. Marshall in RVA says:

    Could be the starting line for the Idaho Gran Prix Wheelbarrow Race.
