Attention, everyone, gporter told me to display this map for your perusal:



Thank you Bacon King. This is the map that I believe many of the members who have posted questions in this conference have asked for. Enjoy.

gporter, could you tell me what continent the nation of "Franco" is situated in? To me it looks like it's siutated in the continent of Africa? Wouldn't you be inclined to agree?

Don't be bothering gporter with petty geography questions! Anyone who's had a high school geography class would know Franco is in central Asia.

I think John Ford would be a good one. Sam Spade, too. Phil would be great on the level of a single state.

Phil honestly believed Santorum would win. I would say that means he doesn't know his state.

If I were to run for office, I'd want a campaign manager who'd keep faith in me till the end.

Well I hope it doesn't end in a tie, or we will have to wait until June for a run-off. Smiley

aw, damn.

actually, the runoff would be technically somehow over before it even began. Grin

this would probably warrant some kind of lawsuit, but i'm just going to be assuming it says 'september' and not 'june'.

Strawman - never said that.  Learn how to actually argue by the way - it's incredible the poor logic skills a lot of the liberals on this forum have.  I actually honor the really serious hard core liberals, because at least their posts are worth reading and debating.

No personal offense meant here, but you're quite the one to be lecturing on logic skills.

I've driven through Dawson on GA 53, driving up to Elijay.

I think I've never been to Fannin. Not sure.

Have you ever been to Barrow County, Clay? I've always been curious as to what my hometown is like from the perspective of an outsider.

What was your impression of Dawson?  There's not a whole lot here.

Yep, I've been to Winder many times actually.  My sister and brother-in-law used to live there and I'd visit a lot.  I thought it was a nice enough place.  It's been a few years now, but I remember thinking that it seemed like a really small but cool city.  And driving through downtown Winder (I think it was downtown anyway...).  There were a bunch of businesses and restaurants and stuff right off the street and not adequate parking.  But there was this one sandwich and bar type place that was really good.

I also go to Monroe a lot, which I think is like right next to Winder, isn't it?  I'm really not sure, but I know it's pretty close anyway.  And it's real close to Athens too.  But my sister lives there now, as well as my grandparents, so I go quite often.

BTW, Fannin Co is where Blue Ridge is.  It's north GA, bordering with TN.  I have another set of grandparents who live there and I'm up there all the time.

To be honest, I don't remember much of Dawson. It was several years back and my dad decided to take a different route up to Elijay. If I recall, I was actually reading a book through the whole county.

And yeah, there's not much parking in the downtown area at all; though I've heard there's going to be a parking garage built at some point in the future. By the way- sandwich and bar type place in downtown? Loco's, maybe? I love that place.

And Monroe is only 20 minutes down GA 11. I've got several friends down there, and I had some family living there at one point.

I could be wrong, but didn't you live in Dahlonega at one point? That's a nice place.

I don't know where all in the state Clay and Dibble have travelled, but I'll guess Gilmer, Murray, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Walton and Wheeler.

You got Gilmer and Walton right for me.  Smiley

The counties I've been to that no one else has....Fannin, maybe?

Or even my current home, Dawson County.
