"Visiting in middle of sidewalk" Joseph Local Custom Tip by ZanieOR

Joseph Local Customs: 3 reviews and 2 photos

The natives of Joseph and Wallowa County are a pretty friendly lot, and stop and catch up on the news wherever they encounter each other, whether it be the middle of the sidewalk or in Jerry's Market or (especially) in Safeway in Enterprise, where it's hard to get out without visiting with three or four people.
Sometimes on the side streets you'll come up behind a pickup or car stopped in the middle of the street with the driver talking to the guy in a vehicle facing the opposite direction. They'll usually drive on when someone drives up behind them.
If not just give a little honk, or drive on around them if you can squeak by.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
