Perhaps for a small island nation, Giacometti portrait, or the secret to eternal youth.

Dude. I actually have a small island nation to trade you. I own part of Sealand. And as a member of the ruling family and baron of my land, I accept your trade offer.

I will swing by this weekend to pick up the keys


Seriously though that is I credibly amazing

Apologies in advance for the horror that follows, but what is everyone's experience with having their driveways "re-paved" versus "fill in the holes and seal coated"? My driveway is looking grim and I've highlighted the two most egregious areas below. My better half thinks it's wasteful to drop 12-15K on a full repaving, when a whack-a-mole?, sealant approach can be had for 2K.

For sale: one house. After payment is received I will tell you the hemisphere, and time zone. For an extra 10% I will tell you the city. The door is unlocked, bon chance
It adds to the mystery.

My two cents: we had a driveway in worse shape than yours, and we redid it with concrete. For the top picture, you could probably get away with just resealing, but once those big chunks start coming up, that's not going to fix the problem, and it will continue to crack and break away.

You don't actually have a driveway anymore. The whack a mole approach will work until lt doesn't and eventually your driveway will be nothing but patch. The second picture out show had the asphalt actually dissolving, and it needs to be replaced. Spend 13-15 now, or spend 2-4 per year for the next few years and then pay 15-18 to replace in a few years. That driveway is toast. The edges are crumpling, waster will continue to get in and eat away, expecially if you live somewhere with a freeze thaw cycle

Looked like my driveway, and it needed replaced badly.
