Oct 19, 2018 - busy highway

I didn't go so far today. I left late because it was foggy and there were big backups on the roads in Knoxville, so I waited them out. the Flying J outside of Knoxville was out of gas at the RV pump so I had to go to a car aisle. That was tight but I got complimented on being a good and careful driver! I had planned on going through Atlanta while everyone was still working, but roads were slowed before, during, and after the city between 3 and 4 PM! At least my path wasn't complicated so I didn't have to change lanes much. I am at a Walmart...

Jun 11, 2015 - Forsyth and fried green tomatoes

We stopped at the rest stop near Lake City for lunch. A Ford Explorer was in front of us, had the hatch open and they were walking a large poodle. When he was done, the poodle jumped onto a rug on the bumper and into his cage in the back of the suv. The man took the rug off, took a platform out of the hitch that was the step for the dog. Looked like a good arrangement for a dog traveling in a suv. We arrived with no problems. We are in spot 120 that is not level, Ray tried the jacks and leveled manually. They delivered a box of large...

2015 Eagle trip

Jan 27, 2015 - One nighters

We stopped overnight at a KOA just off the road in Forsyth, GA. I wouldn't have wanted to bring a big rig into this campground as it was laid out very asymmetrically, and not too level. The best thing about it was the hosts bringing us warm chocolate chip cookies after we got hitched up. I was running a fever by this time, and thinking maybe I should stop at a doc in a box somewhere, but I really didn't want to. I just wanted to get to my doctor. We called the Camping World in Nashville and made arrangements to stop there and get the...

FORSYTH,GA.—(8/4)-Ned called around to Camping Worlds and RV repair places—Camping World North of Atlanta had part we needed and could install and get us out in short time so we got things put in and left for TN staying tonight in Georgia. Nice campground- had a pull-thru so didn’t have to unhook car. Had a little restaurant and had a great pizza, delivered to the RV. When Ned went to set up found he did not have the ring for sewer hose—must have left it in Jacksonville- OH Well- will get new one tomorrow at Camping world. Glad to know we...

Oct 10, 2012 - Last Days of Freedom

We had planned to stay north of Atlanta one night and then south of Atlanta the next night before arriving in Americus for our winter job, but since there was nothing we wanted to see we decided to head on to Forsyth (south of Atlanta) and spend 2 nights there. This gave us time to do our laundry and get Otto cleaned up before heading onward. I found a place to get my hair done, and we got the information sent off to the warranty company regarding the food spoilage and motel stay while our refrigerator was giving us trouble. Traveling in...

Aug 10, 2011 - Wandering in Georgia

Aug 10 This was a day of sightseeing, not exactly the sights I had planned; but this area is so pretty with all the hills and trees that I enjoyed it anyway. I drove over the river and through the trees, literally, to get to Juliette Plantation, just to find out that it is only open on weekends! That wasn’t in any of the brochures!! So off to the town of Juliette where Fried Green Tomatoes was filmed, next to the town was a lovely lake and a high dam—that I tried to get a picture of but there was no way down to see it. The lake and the park...

Aug 9, 2011 - Forsyth GA

Day 3 Aug 9 2011 Today was a driving day, I got going about 8:30 and had to drive up I-75 to just above Macon to a town called Forsyth. Because it was an interstate day, my sightseeing was curtailed to a strip of concrete lined with trees. Every time I drive on the interstate, I remember why I dislike it so. It is boring. Unless the hills were very tall—and there were a few, there was no scenery. But those few glimpses were really pretty. I am now in a KOA in Forsyth. I had a gulp moment when I saw the road into the park, it was quite...

Jul 27, 2011 - andersonville

We went to Andersonville POW memorial in Georgia today. It was really impressive.It is unbelievable the amount of suffering the human spirit can endure and keep struggling to survive. We as Americans owe such a deep dept to all our men and women who serve and who have endured the hardship of captivity in war time. We spent about three hours there and then drove into Plain, Georgia to see where Jimmy Carter grew up. They have converted his old high school into a national parks visitors center. It was really interesting to see how he lived as...

Jul 26, 2011 - Atlanta

Just a short note as I'm pretty pooped. We went to a tour at the world of coca-cola. It was way cooler than i expected and we all really enjoyed it. The we went to the Georgia Aquarium which was spectacular. The had Beluga whales, giant manta rays and a tank you could walk under that had 3 whale sharks in it. you were so close to the fish it felt like you could reach out and touch them, Afterwards we went to a Braves baseball game. The stadium was one of the best I've been in so far. We hung tough through 13 innings but with no end in sight...

Mar 2, 2009 - Departure from Big Canoe

We've been in Big Canoe, Georgia, since the end of December, and it has been an unseasonably cold and gray winter. Our original departure was scheduled to be yesterday, March 1st, but the threat of winter snow gave us pause since neither of us were anxious to tow the RV on slick mountain roads. Fortunately the storm did not materialize, and we departed today under a sunny blue sky. Our journey for the day was relatively short, only about three hours south on I-75, to Forsyth, Georgia, which is about an hour south of Atlanta. Upon arrival...

Jan 29, 2009 - A Good Day

After the snow, ice, and cold of yesterday we wondered what this day would bring. We were not in any hurry to get back on the road and it was around 10 before we left the hotel. We were at a half tank of fuel so I topped it off before getting on the interstate. I noted the temperature was 27 degrees. I started the gas pumping and looked around for the stuff to clean the windshield. The car was filthy from the driving yesterday and I really wanted to get the grime off the windows which were only clean where the wipers hit. I realized I was...

2009 Big Loop

May 17, 2008 - Forsyth, GA

We had a very short drive today to move a little further south. We stopped at the small town of Forsyth (accent on the second syllable). Don's niece lived not too far away and we were going to meet her for dinner. I would describe our campground as being in a pastoral setting. There was a horse in the pasture directly ahead of us and some cattle on the other side of the small park. It was about 2 ½ mi. off the Interstate so it was very quiet at night. The weather was beautiful. A little warm for Manni because it was humid. But no rain....
