    You're right. It's like you are out in the middle of no where.

    Sorry about that.

    Well, you go through Douglasville, road construction, traffic and strip shopping centers and you ride south on highway 5 for about 8 miles to this roundabout (I don't know why they put a roundabout in the middle of nowhere. Maybe they had some extras laying around and had to use them before the end of the fiscal year) and go for a couple of miles on hwy 166. Next thing you see is this pepto bismal colored house called the Agape house. You can't miss it. Why you'd want to find it to begin with may be another story.:lol3

    I figured it out but just haven't been able to find the time to get up there. This one was easier than 'it's a pink house in the middle of nowhere.' Actually with the Agape House I was able to figure out the area but not the exact location.

    I think once daylight savings time hits this will get more active. It's dark whenever I'm not at work. :cry

    ...and is one of only seven left in Georgia. This one happens to be the largest, great place to hang out with friends and you used to be able to watch motocross races from here. Thats enough for now..hope it isn't too easy.

    I guessed it correctly, but honestly the '7 left in Georgia threw me.' I didn't think it was possible but the linky confirms it. I cheated because someone had once told me about the races there.

    It's a cool place, and there's a Sonic nearby so you can get a malt and complete the stepped-back-in-time feeling. :nod

    God bless you, Shark. Hey Fried, I've been to 4 of the seven. The one in blue ridge is pretty cool, super old school.

    OK, here is a tough one.

    There is a golf course behind it.

    It is a watering hole ITP.

    The guys here are REALLY nice.

    I've had it for 3 weeks and already put 150 dirt miles on it. I can't believe that it took me this long to buy a bike, I'm in love (even if my wife isn't overly excited).
