    The impoundment lakes were for rice production but now attract migratory waterfowl. [​IMG]

    I don't see any covered bridges on your last ride. I guess you just need to go out, do some more riding and find some more covered bridges:deal

    You do you like the Sprint?

    "Branching out" but still looking for bridges:wink: For me the Sprint has been totally awesome. Since I got it I have already logged 30k miles. I have taken virtually every possible route between Savannah and Atlanta. The only thing lacking is an off-road capability.

    Jub, did you see Ray Charles in Albany? [​IMG]

    The Ray Charles statue/fountain in Albany by the river is "noteworthy" since his music is being played.

    I have not. I'll put that on my "too see" list. Albany is one town I have not fully explored yet.

    I think it would be cool to have a "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Georgia style" thread! :D

    Small world! I'm in Athens and I've been shopping around for a trusted place that slap on a tire for me and some other work. I've been a little nervous because I'm a woman and I haven't had the best experience with mechanics ( car wise at least) trying to over charge or talk down to me etc. But I've heard good things about them from a few people I'll be checking those guys out very soon.

    Saw this east of Barnesville on Johnstonville Rd. [​IMG]

    I used to "commute" from Marrietta to Savannah 3 out of 4 weekends to keep my sanity. Then one day I just couldn't go back. Found a cheap place in the country and simplified.:clap. Now I need to go find a covered bridge.

    Please be sure and post a link in this thread if you do. There is so much content, I seldom check the entire site.
    Thanks.
