Ok so I have some photos to share finally. Wish I had some videos but bandwidth here is limited so I can't post to youtube. I will probably just edit some tonight. Anyway having a great time.

I had to pull over because of the problems I was having with my boots. It was very hard to keep the accelerator pushed at 70mph. The Jeep being square pushes back at higher speeds and so my toes, heel and calf were hurting bad. I didn't know this was here. I just pulled out on this exit hoping there was somewhere safe to pull over. Wow what a neat thing. I don't know what exit this is. I was flying blind just following the GPS. Wish I'd written directions now since I totally missed Atlanta. Anyway I think this is a carpool because people leave their cars here in the middle of nowhere and get rides. That's what it seems like. So there was no one here despite there being cars.
EDIT: Found this on Google maps. Here's the info.
hwy 112 Ride Share parking.
Exit 82. Ashburn Fitzgerald
The dirt road is Peackock RD and looks around farm country. Maybe next time I can try that dirt road, come back to the 112 then get back on the interstate.

There as a bean farm and a dirt road I was tempted to explore. But I didn't because I had limited time and had to find my aunt's house. I only had to stop for gas twice which I think is great. Chris had the great idea to take out the back seat to get better gas mileage. It really helped. It was like 40 lbs and stopping twice I think is good for a jeep that has lousy gas. I also took out the trailer hitch which is like 3 pounds. Anyway this field was great because there were barn swallows. I did get photos of one on a wire but it was back lit so they didn't turn out well.

So I made it to this amazing house. I parked here under the patio. My room is right above the cars. They have a Dodge Ram and a Toyota Tundra. Two awesome trucks. Alan is in good company.

That's my room upstairs. I got the art room this time. Yes I will take pics. My aunt is a traditional artist. She does paintings on canvas and sculpture.

Here is the house. I'm always amazed by this and can't believe I'm here.

Today I plan to drive the gravel trails and go through the little creeks. It's like having your own private off road here. I want to make a very cool video. It's also a bit scary here because there are black bears and this time I don't have my gun so I stay close to the house when I'm outside. It will be fun. And tomorrow morning I leave for North Carolina.
