Our Georgia Adventure

We left Lake City, FL this morning at 8:00 a.m. under cloudy skies and 48F (9C). The first part of our trip went well. We were breezing along the Atlanta bypass when all of a sudden about five miles from the I-75 interchange, traffic slowed down and stopped in some places. The two left lanes appeared to be moving but these continued to go east on the bypass. Since the lane that was to take us onto I-75 wasn’t moving, we decided to continue on 285 and try to find another route north. We got on 19 going north and then had to find a road to take us back to I-75. At this time we were very low on fuel We wound up going west on 20 and found a station that our RV would fit into. The road took us to Cartersville where we had planned to stay at the local KOA as it had wifi. All in all with the traffic backup and then our rather long detour we were two hours late getting to the KOA but still arrived by about 4:00 p.m. and since we weren’t setting up any satellite dishes were set up by 4:30 p.m. It was 54F (12C) when we arrived and mostly cloudy with some breaks of sun.

The wifi however appears to not work all that well. Gordon went up to the office as his computer didn’t see it at the wireless network at all at the RV. Mine will see it and sometimes will connect and sometimes not.

Anyway with any luck this will upload with the photo of our site at Cartersville, GA KOA.
