Escapes: Visiting Eccentric Relatives

I recently took a quick trip up to the Pacific Northwest to visit my boyfriend's uncle...on a goat farm. I realized that this is one area that we haven't covered. There's going home to visit family and then there's this.

Yes, my boyfriend's uncle decided to change careers about a year ago and has started a goat farm. He has a couple hundred goats, a couple of llamas and 2 border collie puppies to herd them all. Long story but there's no house on the property, instead he lives on a boat docked in a marina behind the property.

This was by far the most eccentric family member I've met yet (and I have some characters in my own family) and I had a blast getting to spend a limited amount of time in a lifestyle that is so different from my own.

Have any bizarre-o trips of your own to share? Weird accommodations? Interesting personalities?
