I was thinking about it. I haven't really been to Atlanta in almost twenty years, and then it was for a school trip being shuttled around on a bus. I don't remember anything much about any of it, and I'm sure it's different than when I was here then.

There's not a lot going on in Atlanta, from our perspective.

We were there for the first time several years ago, expected a beautiful old town. Wrong. Atlanta was burned during the War.

We enjoyed the outskirts much more, some antiques and neat little shops.

Have fun!

Maggie,
Savannah would be what you were looking for!
St. Simons Island is also a neat place.

Yep, love Savannah and that entire coastal area.

We recall traffic in Atlanta as being GHASTLY, and not enough to see there to make it worth risking life and limb. Be careful.

The entire coastal area from St. Augustine up through Charleston is worth exploring, if you've a mind to go. Lots of nice state parks, ferries to take, Cumberland island to explore and beautiful little towns to poke around.

Love, love, love that part of the country.

Alumalina 2013 is coming up, too, folks.

River's End RV park on Tybee Island. About a 15 minute drive to Savannah.

You guys rock for reading these, or you're bored.

Update:

Well, we've wasted enough time here in Atlanta to spend another night. The traffic is horrible, but it's a few miles to the Marta station where we hop on the train and ride in. We love public transportation and regularly take advantage of it, beats paying for parking ($25 if you have an rv, we're not paying that much for full hook ups most places) and the hassle of traffic.

We saw the world of coke, Olympic centennial park and toured the Capitol building. We also walked 23628163 miles - or so it felt.

Today was a milestone also in we left Boris our Boxer in the airstream for more than an hour or so. We opened the door with one eye shut worried about what we might find, but he did great.

Chili cheese slaw dogs at the Varsity for dinner, a family movie and bed beckons. Tomorrow savannah and the coast!

We did Christmas along the South Carolina coast just to be near our daughter and the gandkids. We had a great time just because we were near them. The weather was often cold or wet or both, but we didn't care. Can't say I'd recomend it as a vaction spot except for Charleston, SC. A great historic city and well worth putting on a list of places to see.

Well, the good thing about not making any reservations until you're on the road for your next destination is sometimes you get really lucky and get some great spots! We are in Fort Mcallister State Park just south of Savannah, and it's a great place. My wife, armed with an atlas and a smartphone lined us out for two nights here, a night in Little Talbot island for New Years and then somewhere else in Florida on the beach Tuesday night. That leaves us only technically homeless for Wednesday night, because Thursday starts out reservations at Canopener!

There is another airstream here! It's an Ambassador, but we haven't gone over and said hi yet. That's only the second one we've seen since we left home, those guys are scarce! :Wally:

Tomorrow is exploration, ribs and chicken quarters on the smoker. Let us know you're coming, I'll throw more on!
