Georgia bound

The end of October, we headed north to Georgia to visit our grandson and family, visit friends and hopefully visit some new areas.

Our first overnight stop was the Fort Benning recreation area and campground.  The recreation area is located in Alabama, near the town of Fort Mitchell. Just across the river in GA is the main Army base.  We knew they had a large campground and did not expect to  have any problem getting an overnight spot.  We went to the check in point at the general store and they had one site left for that night. This time we got lucky. We had seen large tents going up near the camping area with signs for an Oktoberfest  event starting the next day.  They gave us all the info for the Oktoberfest and  told us if we were interested in a camp site or cabin they fill up a year ahead.   That event will go on the to do list.




Our second stop before seeing our grandson and family was one of our regular camp spots for a number of years-Harvest Moon campground in Adairsville, Ga.  Nice sites, full hookups and free popcorn. We stayed here when visiting family while we were full timing and our motorhome was too large to mooch camp. It is a great overnight stop just off  I-75.





The highlight of our visit with Aleister and his parents was a visit to the Chattooga Zoo.  This was our first time here,  While small compared to many city zoos, it was well laid out and we had a great time there.  Only Aleister decided to ride a camel.

I love zoos. I think the best one I have been in is the San Diego Zoo. It is huge. Takes two days to see it all.

That seems to be a very nice zoo, and the camel ride is a plus. I think I rode on one many years ago, or maybe I just sent my kids up on one! I love the little foxes.
