You guessed it. The Georgia state line.
Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. Wow it is hot out here.
Oglethorpe, Ga...Mike Stewart was so busy we caught him in the hall
for a photo. Fuller Center data delivered.
The batllefield of Fort Oglethorpe director gave us a warm reception.
The rail fencing lined both sides of the highway throughout the battlefield.
The smell of death was not as strong as when I was in Gettysburg, but
it felt the same.
The monuments and markers are reminders of our past not to be repeated
in our future.
Chickamauga, Ga...My new found friend Jim Powell. This man was amazing.
He educated us processed our photos and showed us true southern hospitality. Thanks.
LaFayette, Ga... We were welcomed by Doris Greene and Brenda Anderson
and they like the Fuller message.
Hospitality in the south. David Gottlieb and his son said we should eat at C.J.s and we did. The local editor Larry Brooks
did a story on us
C.J.s the best food in the South. Pictured Rebecca Hatfield, April
Cooley and Larrry Martin. Larry wished he could join us.
Now here's a story. In 1952 Grady McCalmon sat at his kitchen table
with his mother and Adolph Rupp to see if he could play for U. of K.

Cedartown, Ga...Tommy Engram accepted our Fuller challenge in Cedartown, Georgia and wished us a safe trip. He warned
us about how you know a happy cyclist
Southern architecture rears it's beautiful head.
Trains beside me. Trains beneath me. Trains above me. I experienced
them all on this trip.
Most train depots are tourist centers today much like they were originally.
My son Michael got a kick out of this, since he takes the auctioneer
exam in 2 weeks.
Felton, Ga...Felton was a small, but friendly community with Peggy
Crook and Melissa Hardegree receiving the Fuller packet.

to be sure and eat at Gwen's Family restaurant.

fascinated by our website.
My second liberty bell on this trip. Let freedom ring.
Close up of the old courthouse. There seems to be a rash of new Federal
courthouses being built in this country. Wonder what that means.
Hanging out with the guys in Buchanan museum.
Martha Washington wanted to hop on and ride out of town with me.
Martha,Donna Goodman, Ellen Cohran and Lisa Miller would like to invite
you to eat at Gwen's.
Like I said trains over me. About right here my old blue bike died
and big red was pulled out.
Bowden Junction, Ga...Postmaster Johnny Muse greeted us in Bowden Junction
while one of his seasoned customers took the picture.
Carrollton, Ga...Officer Jeff Vaughn was our first bike cop. Jeff averages
30 miles a day in Carrollton.

The Greenville courthouse is the center of attraction for all the residents
to gather about.
Warm Springs, Ga... Warm Springs became famous when Franklin D. Roosevelt
discovered their 82 degrees mineral springs.
The Warm Springs pools were expanded by Roosevelt for all polio sufferors.
Warm Springs is a golden nugget of a find for the historical tourist.
Suzanne Pike or Suzy as Roosevelt called her, was the highlight of
my trip. For a personal story give me a call.
Suzy photographed with my sons Michael and Matthew. This lady is such
a class act.
Roosevelt's little white house in Warm Springs.
The mayor told us this is the only house Franklin D. Roosevelt ever
Warm Springs, Ga...MayorHazel Ramsey and Laura O'Neal welcomed the
Fuller Center packet and want to know more. Hazel shared she had met 4 presidents.

ride into Americus.
This is the train depot headquarters for the Jimmy Carter

supplier in the United States. According to the owner.
The Fuller Center bikers were like an
invasion on Plains.
