TRIP DONE!!!! 1.5 weeks off, where to go?
« on: July 30, 2013, 04:11:39 pm »
I'm going to try and log a trip with no laptop, no iPad, and without a camera, just a phone

As of tomorrow its on to my daughter's in GA, moms in SC, TN/NC mountains, designer Billy Reid's place, and anywhere it may look interesting within that book on the seat within the Southeast

Have fun!  You just looking for roads or sites as well.  I like Tallulah gorge, amicalola falls, Fort Mountain, and all points in between.

Way too many great roads in that area.

Go to  Highlands NC and find the Mountain Fresh Grocery. Get their cheeseburger for lunch. You'll be glad. Nice roads, too.

You bet. If it's still good, maybe a RTE. I went up 441 to Clayton, turned right on War Woman Dell Rd (at the Wendy's, I think) and went all the way to the end where it dead ends into Hwy 28. From (Turn left) there to Highlands is crooked as can be!) I went to the visitor's center and asked where to get a burger. The place is at the end of main street in what looks like an IGA market. the road appears to dead end into it. The parking lot was packed with Porches, Land Rovers, Jags, MBs, so I shoe horned one old
C-10 into it. Good luck.

Yes sir I love HWY 28 both North and South of Franklin!  Still can;t believe I didn't know about those top secret burgers!

Indeed and thanks!
