Here you can see the FJR getting abit antsy to get the show on the road.
In Americus, if we headed abit east just a bit, we could have visited Andersonville National Historic Site, but with the miles ahead of us, we elected west to Jimmy Carter National Historic Site. It was on the way. The site is a bit underwhelming to say the least. It is located in a school, with a bunch of memorabilia. (Guess we should have gone to Andersonville)

Couple more pics from Plaines,GA
For the most part the roads from Florida thru GA and so far thru AL are pretty straight, but the countryside has plenty of things to look at. In some regards you get to see more when the roads are straight.
One of the treasure hunts I participated in with the NER's in New England, had tanks as a subject. I tested the waters on this subject taking pictures of gas tanks on bikes, gas tanks for grills and the rally bastahd decided on military tanks. This place would have been the jackpot.
Grabbed a couple Smoke Chasing and USA Towns along the way.
|This place was hopping so it's gotta be an awfully good place to eat..really |
|MeAsWe not too happy|
Maybe I passed some gas or something
|Isn't this song great ??|
but I feel bad for the blue and yellow ones
We took a ride around the auto course thru the battlefield.
Horseshoe was our last time sensitive stop. We have completed maybe a third of the miles for the day and its 2pm, conclusion: it is going to be a long day. We have places to see and places to go.
I think these are the Sloss Furnaces (a National Landmark) that we were suppose to stop and see
One of many BBQ Joints we grabbed in Alabama. We have been thru NC, SC, GA, FL and Alabama without a doubt had the most BBQ joints out of all these states.
A neat mural, I believe it was in Guin, Al
Amory, Mississippi for USA Tour
Neat locomotive in Amory
A really kewl roadside BBQ joint in Nettleson, MS. The owner was there with his granddaughter. He was curious why were taking pictures of his mobile joint. We showed our flag and explained the tour.
Just outside of Tupelo, MS our destination for the evening.
