DIRECTIONS TO THE M.A.D. HOUSE ARTISTS

There is a small problem with our address and the international Global Positioning System: They have the name of our road all mangled, and will tell us that we need to enter a valid address. Google Maps is completely deluded, do NOT use Google to try and find us.

Well, our address is the only one we have, so here is the satellite image with the pin on the house, or rather, the house next door to the south, but the name on the roads do not come anywhere near to the correct names of the roads that are supposed to be listed...

REALISTIC DIRECTIONS FROM THE SOUTH WEST and JOPLIN

(strange as that may seem)

Make your way on highway 28 or 82 to Langley, Oklahoma and cross this historical Grand River Dam, upon which our own Grandfather, Hazen Kimball Hibbard, was an engineer in 1940

Drive through the charming island town of Disney, Oklahoma,

Be sure to stop at what used to be Pistol Pat's for their excellent Ice Cream and Bar-B-Que Sandwiches. The menus are written in Cherokee and English.

Cross two spillways, pass through Tia Juana, Oklahoma and continue on two and an half miles east on highway 28.

On your left you will see a nice new Mini Storage, a pretty blue sign indicating CHEROKEE LAKE ESTATES, and an enormous billboard proclaiming RAPER CORNER and pointing to Raper Hollow

Turn left at that corner into 'Cherokee Lake Estates' and continue straight for about a mile, DOWN into the ravine and UP the other side. After you level off, there is a second  sign proclaiming

"CHEROKEE LAKE ESTATES"

Turn left again into CHEROKEE LAKE ESTATES and almost immediately

Go Straight Ahead onto the Dirt Road

where you will see a small sign pointing down the dirt road that says,

guess what?, 'Hibbard-Lillie', (of all things!,)

and The familiar Shire Fairy Shire sign in black and green.
(oops - that sign has been stolen - just the arrow at this time)

Continue down the dirt road for one mile to the Llama's pasture (which is all tree-covered). Signs along the fence describe the plants. There are a number of license tags on the tree near the upper gate, the FIRST gate - where you turn in and drive in, the one with the sign proclaiming 'The M.A.D. House Artists', in red and purple and bright green. If you are expected, don't worry, the dogs will be safely penned up enjoying their field.

If you are surprising us, call 918 435-4150 and give us half an hour so we may corral the canine stock and put our shoes on.

REALISTIC DIRECTIONS TO The M.A.D. HOUSE ARTISTS FROM THE EAST, Jay or Grove

Make your way from Grove, Oklahoma or Little Kansas, or Arkansas to Jay Oklahoma and head west out of town at BILL'S CORNER (which is NOW a convenience store and gas station, possibly referred to as "The Y") on highway 20. The old store with the 'BILL'S CORNER' sign has been demolished in 2009 and is now a new filling station with a very large metal rooster in the lot, but turn there anyway.

As you drive down highway 20 towards the southwest, you will see a sign for highway 28. Highway 28 ends at highway 20 where the Shamrock Station (Marvin's Trading Post) is located.

Turn right onto highway 28 at the Trading Post.

(Farther along down twisty-section-line-road-highway-28 is what used to be Stop-A-Lot, Next to  Cosby's Catfish Restaurant. And Cosby's is now OPEN FOR BUSINESS AGAIN!, if you want a great all-you-can-eat catfish dinner - THIS is your best bet around. But back to highway 20 and the Trading Post...)

From the turn at highway 20, drive about eight and one half miles, past the Y-Not-Stop
(?or whatever it is called this month?) on DOWN and UP the steep hill (best not to take it at 60mph...) and around the bends in the road to the electric substation on the left at 510. Across 28 on the right is the nice blue sign proclaiming "CHEROKEE LAKE ESTATES" and an enormous billboard proclaiming "RAPER CORNER" and pointing you towards 'Raper Hollow' to your right.
Turn right at that corner into Cherokee lake Estates, from highway 28.

Having made the right turn towards 'Cherokee Lake Estates', continue straight on that asphalt road, DOWN into the ravine and UP the other side. After you level off, there is a second sign proclaiming

"CHEROKEE LAKE ESTATES"

Turn left into CHEROKEE LAKE ESTATES and almost immediately

Go Straight Ahead onto the Dirt Road.

You will see a small sign pointing down the dirt road that says, guess what?, 'Hibbard-Lillie', (of all things!,) and the familiar Shire Fairy Shire sign in black and green.
(nope - someone stole the fairy sign)

Continue down the dirt road for one mile to the Llama's pasture (which is all tree-covered). Signs along their fence describe the plants. There are a number of license tags on the tree near the Upper Gate, the FIRST gate, where you turn in and drive in, and a sign proclaiming 'The M.A.D. House Artists', in bright green and purple and red. Don't worry - it is a circle drive, you go on out the other gate when you leave.

 If you are expected, don't worry, the dogs will be safely contained.

If you are surprising us, call 918 435-4150 and give us half an hour so we can corral the canine stock.
