Efinref, I've ridden the same roads over and over myself always looking for a new road. Matter of fact, coming home from Fl a couple of weeks ago, we rode GA 39 north from Bainbridge, GA, to Columbus, which you recommended a while back and found it to be ideal for a back roads route to/from FL from my area. Also, several years ago, I drew a 100 mile circle around Douglasville for day rides, which expanded to 200 miles just to ride "new" roads. Your're right. We've probably crossed paths many times, since we like the NE area of AL and do that often.

Very nice, would love to be there. Interesting that the JD distilllery is in a dry county.:confused:

Would love to see Australia; your rides and photos give me a good view of what I've missed. My wife worked for Eastern Air Lines for 20 years before they went bankrupt and we got to see a lot of the world but not in your area. I'll now have to be content with seeing N. A. on two wheels.

Also, when we were at the distillery, the guide told us that the TN legislature recently passed a bill that now allows packaged JD to be sold in one area of the visitor's center but cannot be consumed there. Guess they caught a lot of flack about such a big revenue producing industry being unable to sell their product on site. Might as well say the county is still dry. Go figure.
