Stuart and I were 8 miles away, but the traffic wasn't moving. We regret having to turn around. Sorry we missed you guys.

That was some of the worst 20 traffic I've seen. Missed you guys but don't blame you a bit!

I have a lot to be thankful for in my life. Warren and Kent you have just added to the list. The times spend with you last night will always be in my memory of the good things in my life.
Tony, I don't blame you one bit for turning around. I have found out three things in the time I have been in Ga. 1) You don't need a license plate on the front of your car. 2) Speed limits signs are just a suggestion. 3) The cops won't pick you up if your break lights are not in working order. Question? Is there a discount for the cars when you buy them without break lights? LOL
I will say to anyone that if you are in the Atlanta area and have the time......contact the local turners here. The time you spend with them we be well spent.

Thank you Warren and Tony for the gifts and for the exchange of woods. I am sure I am the one that came out ahead.

The trip is starting to turn around. Looking at the maps and planning my return to the frozen north very soon. I will be very sorry to leave here. It has been great.

Wayne it was an absolute pleasure breaking bread with you last night and spending the afternoon today with you and Jerry. You are welcome back anytime. Safe travels.

Oh, I'm surprised you did not mention or notice that turn signals are not installed on cars in Atlanta.

Thanks for your visit my friend.

Safe trip home.
I lived in NYC and LI for 44 years, believe me, Atlanta traffic is like Disney World compared to what I have dealt with. I had planned to leave my home earler, but I wanted my friend who introduced me to penturning almost 2 years ago today to join us...and he was late coming from an appointment. I like penturning, but I love meeting these fine folks and sharing ideas and stories with the people.

Just want you to know that some friends of mine and I were discussing the Georgia Chapter this weekend. I hope that your ears were burning Warren.
And Kent? The pictures of your cave were the talk for most of the afternoon. Yes, we are all rednecks too!

I am so looking forward to a return trip.......hopefully, with a little more time to spend with the GA Turners. Thank you again for the memories.

Wayne it was great having you. Glad you like my cave or as the wife calls it " The Dead Animal Room". I had to sneak another one in over the weekend. She might kill me but the taxidermist Loves me.
