We cannot get out

There are two roads that can be used to get to our house from the Outside.  One of them is blocked by some gentlemen who are felling a very large tree.   The other currently has a very large trailer / static caravan wedged very firmly into a narrow bend that was clearly designed for nothing wider than a horse-cart.  I got back here by dodging past the tree-felling gentlemen before they had really got stuck in.

So far, there are no drums in the deep. (Obviously, we are well endowed with Deeps here, being a mining area). Though if there are Drums, as a resident of the area, I am not sure if I am supposed to flee in terror from flame and shadow, or pile out to skitter menacingly up and down, waving something pointy at  The Party as it comes through.

The skittering up and down menacingly sounds like more fun...

When the men have finished chopping up the tree, will they start upon the firmly-wedged caravan?

The caravan was gone this evening, so they dislodged it somehow, and when I had to back out and go round, it really didn't look like it was going anywhere. So possibly that did indeed happen.

I wonder what shoes one wears for skittering in. I could wave a garden fork, that's quite menacing. Or a billhook.

You should have set the menagerie on them; this would at least have produced confusion.

The Nine Caravaners took then grave counsel...

Gandalf: Our way is blocked by blokes felling a tree. We must take the narrow bend.

Gimli: My kinsfolk drove their horse-cart through there. I would fain see the narrow bend of old.

Aragorn: My memories of the narrow bend are evil.

Boromir: We could always drive through bunn's property instead.

Gandalf: That, too, is perilous. There are many sighthounds.

Later...

Aragorn: See, Gandalf, I told you the caravan would get stuck.
