Got off Monday after 12...heading for Columbus, OH 1003 miles away....and had to be there by Wednesday.
Drove just under 300 miles to Perry, GA. Found a stopover at Fair Harbor RV Park just off I75. Neat park all treed, cute little lake in the middle of it, great electric and cable. Just what we needed after getting in around 6 that evening.

Arrived yesterday in the pouring rain. Had spent the day doing general store with grist mill in Helen. Did a great hike to Ruby Falls. Went on to Clayton.

Well, it's getting late and we have to get up early tomorrow to drive back in for one more seminar and some shopping. Then we are going to drive over to Andersonville and if we have time, down to Plains to visit Jimmy Carter's ...
Today we didn't go into the rally as early as yesterday. The first seminar we wished to attend didn't start until 9:45, but the exhibits opened at 9. We left for Perry about 8:30. It was cloudy and foggy, but at least it wasn't raining. About 1am I heard it raining and thought, "Not again!" But it didn't last long, thank goodness. We arrived at the fairgrounds and walked around the exhibits looking for some specific things and signing up for emails ...
