    That's quite steep.

    How wide is the driveway? You might be able to come in at an angle to the driveway.

    It's only 8 maybe 10 feet wide.

    I think the crown on the road may be adding to the issue.

    Might have to copy your neighbor down the road and just park it on the street.

    Or build a bridge.

    To many toys to street park and the bridge is in my mind.

    The real kicker here is the boat! The street dead ends two houses down and there is no turn around so, if I can't get the boat in the drive, I'll need to back it down an entire block. And if I don't have a place for it , back it back up the block to park it in front of the house.

    Hey Guy my neighbor I lived by years ago had the same issue. What he did was placed a sheet of 3/8" steel plate across the gap to make the transition more level. It worked pretty good and still allowed drainage. The steel was pretty heavy so it never moved or got stolen.

    That's what I was thinking, or making a blacktop bridge from the middle of the street to the tangent point of the driveway with a channel or pipe for drainage.

    Better check with the city on that plan. Would hate to see you get stuck with a bill for city workers to undue it.

    I 2nd the steel plate idea. City shouldn't care because it won't hinder water flow and is technically temporary. In the heat the edge on the asphalt will dig in pretty quickly and the two corners of the side on your driveway can be secured with some anchor bolts.

    If it snows there you might want to have some expanded metal welded on the top for traction.

    I always try to be responsible with advice to others but I don't always follow it myself either.

    A couple of weeks ago, after a few beers and under the cover of darkness I topped of my neighbors trees that were blocking my view so yes, I often go with the idea that it's easier to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission.
