As you approach the park, this is what you see.......... I know it is customary to enter the first drive when approaching. I am the one who changed it. I changed it for a very good reason ...... not just because I own the place and I can do what I want. I changed it because the park has a one-way drive around it to facilitate the parking of the big rigs. When they entered the first drive, they were already headed in the wrong direction and had to turn around. I have a really big parking area in the front, but if I had several coming in around the same time, it created a bit of a traffic jam. So, I changed it. It is also a lot easier to exit when you are driving a big rig and towing ......... no sharp turns.
So, you would think that putting up signage would eliminate any confusion, right? The first sign was made by he who augers the hole to put the post in. It said, "Enter Next Drive". That wasn't working, so I added a sign that said "EXIT ONLY" underneath. Not working either and to my great annoyance folks kept flying in and not stopping at the end of the drive..........maybe because there is no stop sign if you are going the wrong way?
My soul sister knows an artist, Kino, also skate border extraordinaire, I am told. He painted the frog sign you see and brought to my attention that the very first word on my old sign was ENTER, and that my customers weren't reading beyond that. Made sense, so I changed the sign. I thought that the bright color with black letters saying "DO NOT ENTER" was an eye catcher and would do the trick. I am so naive.
