Hi, Ron. Welcome aboard. Got enough reading stuff around here to entertain ya for hours.

You might run across my bro now and then - got a place on the lake out off Pilgrim Mill. Rides a champagne LT. Used to own Simply Southern restaurant, but sold it and now just rides and flies. Recently bought a fixed wing airplane, light sport category, so you may not see him on the LT as often as he used to ride it.

You definitely are in an area of great riding roads and shouldn't have any trouble hooking up with riders in your 'hood. Ride safe, Ron - glad you found our little family!!!

Ron when you're ready for the best hamburger in Nawth Ga let me know. We'll head up to Tiger Ga to a mom and pop operation. Truly great hamburgers.

Greg:

I'll agree the one is Tiger is good, but I did find one better and it is not that far from me. Try Heavy's BBQ just south of Crawfordville. Yes, they are making burgers now and I've yet to find anyplace to beat theirs.

John,

We need to plan a RTE to investigate this burger. Maybe a weekend in October?

Re: New Member in Georgia

OK then, anyone else who wants to test burgers, well come on and join us. Now as for the weekend at IH, that prime rib is hard to pass up, but the burger is much closer. Guess I need to plan for events more in advance.

The only thing wrong with that is that there are too many communiities that have their major events in the fall. Case in point, Maysville has an event this Sat. and I can't make it, dang it, as it is a good event.

With all said, I'll be at Heavy's BBQ to test burgers one more time. bgof It's GOOOOOODDD!

Re: New Member in Georgia

OK, made some changes and Oct 30 is now open. So if that works better for you, let me know and if most prefer the 30th, that is what it will be. So speak your preference ASAP. I still can't make it to IH that weekend, involved in something that is keeping me close for awhile.

Re: New Member in Georgia

Can't make the 30th, I'll be in Austin. Going back to visit what used to be Bergrstrom AFB, aka Austin International Airport. 12th Air Force headquarters, the Doughnut, is now a Hilton Garden Inn. Also going to check out Barton Springs and some other childhood haunts.

Don't know when you were there last but I left there in 1980 and didn't get back until 2002. Wow what change!! I spent four years in the Navy at UT persuing a BS EE. Used to shop at Bergstrom Px and Commisary. I can remember when there was open country between Austin and Round Rock.

Re: New Member in Georgia

Jay, you're right everything has changed around the Del Valley area. I grew up there in the early 70s and went back about four years ago. Lake Travis is completely developed now.

If you go in though one of the airport access roads you can get to what used to be base housing. I've been able to locate the exact spot of our old home. I'm going to take my mom on a tour of the area - really looking forward to the trip.

I've attached some pics from my last trip, including a stop at Shrevport, LA on my way back to Atlanta.

Re: New Member in Georgia

I'm showing about two hours riding from Johns Creek, so how about noon? If it's too busy I could come in earlier or later. Let me know.

Anyone else making the ride? Hawg?
