    Doing the "Grand Tour of Georgia" with 20 locations/destinations to seek out and photograph.
    This looks like fun and with the out of the way places I will covet and uncover even more of Georgia.
    So far:

    That looks like a fun way to get out and see the state. I was thinking about registering myself. I don't know if I would have the time to visit all 20 locations.

    Well thanks for sharing and providing a couple more worthy destinations for us. :clap We will most certainly place these on our ride list.

    @Jub.... you don't have to visit all 20, they give you a break and only require 18 sites visited by November. As much riding as you do, shouldn't be a problem.:lol3

    How do you beat the heat while riding in August? Easy when you head over to the Little River Canyon in Cherokee County, Alabama.

    The ride from the ATL burbs to The Old School Diner on the coast was 626.3 miles of great backroads. It all started by getting out of the driveway.

    There are trains and cabooses on display throughout our wonderful state.
    Many of us pass these icons of transportation without a second thought,
