  1. >However, after the 30th anniversary took place in 2015, Sandi could not take it any longer. The event attracted 15,000 people to Astoria. Fans were disrespectful, leaving beer bottles and cigarette buds in the driveway, and she was tired of having no privacy in her own home. She resulted in covering her home in giant pieces of blue tarp in an attempt to gain back more of a personal and private life. She also put up signs which read ‘Access to The Goonies House closed’ and a second sign that read, ‘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.’

    Man that would suck.
