Now this locale I feel like I know very well. ;)

Ryan have you been to Atlanta, Georgia?

Ryan Calhoun on September 19, 2007

I've been through Atlanta, but never stopped there for anything. I'm guessing there are farms with silos around Atlanta?

Ryan my husband and I have been told to get our passports because he will be sent on a course down there. Was hoping you'd have some suggestions of places to visit.

Pam (whose not looking forward to customs....my son said they made him, and all the other students, remove shoes etc when they landed in New York).

I haven't been around Georgia enough to know much, just driven through it on the way to Florida, where my grandparents are retired. I know the peaches are gone for the season. There should be plenty of trees around for you, a nice escape from the prairie!

Yes, US customs is more strict than other countries I've been to. But it's not that bad if you're ready for it. There's a bunch of gray plastic bins that slide along the table through the scanner. You just grab as many bins as you need, usually separate bins for big things. One for shoes, one for hand bags, etc, one for camera, one for camera bag, one for laptop, one for laptop case. If you have any dense items, like ipod, big batteries, US-Europe power converter, etc, those should come out and go in a bin too. When you get in the line, just start unzipping bags and opening pockets, and untie shoes, so when you reach the table you're ready to put all those things in the bins. Then you go through the metal detector and gather everything back up and put your shoes back on. It's only bad when you (or the person in front of you) isn't ready and has to open everything up right at the table.

Have a good trip!

Nice shot, old Hemingray 40's up on that pole. Got some insulator photos and old farm photos from Rural MS I'll be adding.

Thanks Dotzy. I don't know for sure the number, but I imagine you are right.
