For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

So What Do You See On The Sandy Back Roads of South Georgia?

I ran into town (Adel) about six miles from Reed Bingham State Park to pick up a couple of things from the grocery store that I forgot. Coming back I saw a dirt road. Well, I couldn't resist. I wasn't sure what to expect, but thought I would share what I saw. They must re-sand the roads now and again. One could teach someone how to drive on ice. In places it's thick and you slide around, you turn against the slide and it works just like in snow or ice. Other places your teeth chatter with the bumping.
It called me. I couldn't help myself.

There are lots of old weathered structures that have a beauty all their own. There are also some beautiful homes. I didn't take pictures of them because I didn't want to impose on people's privacy. 
This place was unusual. It stored what seemed to be kindling wood. I thought I got a better picture, but it was all small sticks.

Pecan Grove

This guy seemed friendly. His pals not so much.

This was the white pig's pal. He followed him all around.

This is a river. Would be interesting to kayak. I think this is where the park gives tours every now and then.

Cotton Up Close

There were cotton fields wherever I looked

I started up this road, but had second thoughts and turned around when I could as it was getting more and more narrow.

This is a picture of the lake at the park

Some of my friends may want to kayak and bike when they get here.

This was completely flooded one year when I was here with my friend Teresa. Shows what an awful drought we have here in the south.
My kids will enjoy this. They all Went to UGA and are big fans. Obviously these people are, as well. There was an identical gate right across the drive.

These two characters hang together. They were lounging around my trailer and following me wherever I went. I was thinking, "Oh, no." The host said they know the owner. They must get loose when he goes to work and they come to the park looking for handouts. Whew. Cute pups, but not in my future.


  1. Out on an adventure I gather have a wonderful time. I love the old buildings and the fence with the little bull dogs haha

    1. Thanks, Jo. I thought the bull dogs were clever, too.

  2. Glad to see you are still finding ways to enjoy life as it should be with a Smile and Happy Thoughts.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Thank you. You've always been so positive and encouraging.

  3. Love the pig picture, glad he has a friend to hang with. I've always loved old buildings. Once in Colorado we asked where an abandoned town was. the fellow said "oh, you mean old and junky and not worth a damn!) I've remembered that for over 35 years!

    1. I don't understand how people can't see the beauty in "old" buildings and towns. I almost always think, to myself, this won't be here some day, but I will always know it was here. Thanks for stopping by.


Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.
