Goonies fans never say die! And that's a problem for the woman who owns the house

Here's the moral of the story upfront: If you don't like the Truffle Shuffle, don't buy the Goonies house.

Turns out the woman who owns the Astoria, Oregon, house where the 1985 flick The Goonies was filmed are tired of all the tourists, says Britain's Independent. It seems a thousand people a day were stopping by the property. That does seem a little extreme.

The house is now blocked by a blue tarp and a sign is posted to scare away visitors: "Imagine that you buy a house, fix it up, spend money, time and love. Then the city of Astoria encourages 100,000's of people to come and stand in front and view it. This driveway (maintained by homeowners) sees 1,000+ people every day. Most are kind, fun and welcome, but many are not."

Seems the owner just hates nature! She HATES nature!

What can we say? To paraphrase: Right now, the owner has got to do what's right for her. Because it's her time. Her time! Up there! Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here!
