First Line(s)

First, the woods. Close-crowding trees of a dozen varieties. The twisted aisles between them are choked with tangled undergrowth and vines. No need to wallow through that; here's a road, a private road leading back from the big iron gate at the highway. Please note that the road is paved. Blacktopped. Obviously we are moving through these trees toward the isolated home of someone with money; he owns these woods and has paved the road you expect to be dirt or gravel. Follow the road. If you clock it, you will find that the house is over a mile off the highway. There is another gate: black iron, again. It is electrically controlled. If you check the three cars in the garage you will find a remote gate-button in each of them. There are two more controls in the house. These people like privacy, obviously. And ease.
