forty and plumb

“Hi, this is Riders. So I went to where the road turns right, and I turned left–”
“Uh-huh.”
“–and I went across the cattleguard, and now there’s another fork in the road–”
“Yep!”
“–and there’s a tree here….and there’s a guy coming at me in a four-wheeler.”
“That’s the husband.”

“Personal new low: I lost my notebook this time.”

“Where’re you headed out next?”
“Well, somewhere I’m hoping it’s not flooded out.”
“Forty and Plumb, huh?”
“…?”
“Out in the back forty and plumb nowhere?”
