    Stone Mountain

    June 9, 2017 in the United States

    Been in the coach a week and this is our first day doing touristy stuff. Destination, the top of Stone Mountain, not via the easy route on the tram, but on foot. A steady climb with some really steep bits near the top, but it was the heat which made it tough going, we're just not used to it in Scotland. Temperature was high 70s F and sunny. Great views of Atlanta on one side and on the other our campground in the trees by the lake & golf course. We're amazed at how many trees there are in the east coast states.Read more

    Stone Mountain Campground GA

    June 3, 2017 in the United States

    Wow !! What a busy few days, drove the car up from Florida and picked up the coach Friday. The RV Loft were great the services on the engine and generator we asked for had been completed and they were just finishing the sanitisation of the fresh water system including new water filters. So we were good to go..... a few yards round the corner to Atlanta Commercial Tire to replace 2 rear tyres which were a few years old and showing signs of dry rot. A couple of hours later and we were really good to go. In at the deep end driving in convoy round Atlanta Friday afternoon, traffic was horrendous with kamikaze drivers everywhere.
    Now we're settled into the campground and been food shopping, so now we can explore and relax. Temps are in the 80s F and humid, we are still acclimatising.

    June 11, 2017 in the United States

    After dinner at the Commons restaurant at the golf club we went to the evening lasershow at the Confederate Memorial Carving, which depicts three Confederate heroes of the Civil War, President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. Great show starting & ending with fireworks.

    Bikes stowed in Jeep

    June 8, 2017 in the United States

    Tuesday & Wednesday were spent at the RV dealer getting the tow system set up on the Jeep. Successful tow back to the campground yesterday, relief that all went well.
    We've extended our stay at the campground and so need to move sites today. So secured the bikes in the Jeep with bungees and there's still plenty of room for hiking gear, chairs and shopping.

    Stone Mountain Park Historic Center

    June 10, 2017 in the United States

    Visiting the park today, wandered round the Historic Square, buildings date back to the 1800s. Then on to the attractions, mainly for kids, and finished with a ride round the mountain on the railway. We're treated to a show halfway round at the old town.

    Welcome to Georigia

    February 16, 2017 in the United States

    So, der letzte Bundesstaat vor unserem Endziel ist erreicht. Nach einer doch ziemlich durchwachsenen Nacht auf dem Tankstellenparkplatz haben wir uns dann heute morgen wieder in Richtung Süden aufgemacht. Östlich von Atlanta haben wir den Stone Mountain entdeckt, einen ca. 500m hohen Granitblock mitten im flachen Land. Diesen haben wir natürlich zu Fuß erklommen. Schweißgebadet oben angekommen, bot sich uns ein gigantischer Blick über die riesigen Wälder und Atlanta am Horizont. Als Entschädigung für die letzte Nacht haben wir uns dann heute einen idyllischen Campground am See (mit tierisch netten Nachbarn) direkt gegenüber des Berges gesucht und hoffen auf eine bessere Nacht...Read more

    Decateur, Georgia

    March 31, 2017 in the United States

    What a stark difference in the landscape between Florida and Georgia. It went from dry and brown to lush and green! It was a beautiful drive😀 We arrived at Pats house about 9pm. Pat and Sage used to work together in Seattle. When we walked in the house we were greeted by amazing smells coming from the kitchen! So much yummy food and fun company. Pat, Melissa, their daughter, her 2 friends and 3 dogs makes for lively dinner conversation 😀 Maybe it's from being raised by my bonus dad who loved to reminisce and tell stories because I love listening to old friends recall funny and touching stories. Laughter and tears always touch my heart!
    We did however get a nail in a tire of the SUV. Sage pulled the flat off, put the spare on, and Thanks to pep boys, open on a Sunday we were able to get on the road on Monday morning.

    Our next destination was a farm in Sparta Georgia. We found Mockingbird Hill Farm on a we site called Hipcamp. Our host Martha was raised on this old share croppers farm. What a beautiful place! We arrived early and informed nonchalantly that a big storm was coming. We smiled, I love storms! Then she said she needed to go put her dogs up and 'hunker down' to which I asked 'how big is this storm?'
    She replied 'a tornado.' 😳 Martha then asked where we thought we would feel the safest during this storm that could hit in the next 30 min. Seriously! We politely asked her where the safest place would be and she directed us to a kitchen built of concrete blocks. We started there but ended up in a screened in living area next door. What a fabulous storm!!! All the best elements but a tornado!

    Next day we toured the tiny town of Sparta. Sweet people, great buildings and tons of history. Sparta is what one calls the "Po South" because it's so poor they cannot afford the extra O & R.

    One more night on the farm with the sounds of cows, a mini donkey, goats, chickens, roosters and red ants!!! Yes, ants! Boo! All in all, it was a fun pit stop. Thank you Georgia for your hospitality!
