I'm throwing Essex, NY out there again and possibly Warren, NY

I drove through Essex and Warren (and Clinton) when I went to Montreal a few years ago. Its a very remote area by regional standards. Its the only time in my life I ever used cruise control on my car.

Anybody been to:

Herkimer County, NY
Androscoggin, Maine
Ocean, NJ
Sussex, DE
Wicomio and Worcester, MD
Accomack and Northampton, VA
New Hanover, NC
Beaufort, SC
Monroe, FL

As you can see, I rarely leave the East Coast. I've only been west of the Appalachians 3 times.

I've been to Beaufort, Ocean, Androscoggin (white-water rafting!) and Sussex.

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.

Loco's, that was it.

No, I've never lived in Dahlonega, but it's real close to me.  I used to live in Snellville...all my life really until just a couple years ago...in Gwinnett County.

Lots of places in Sweden, obviously Wink (anything Johan hasn't visited). Has anyone else been to Mauritius, Curacao, Bonair, Marsa Alam or Chengdu?

Has any of the British posters been to, say, Reading? I'm guessing some of the Germans must have been to Münster and Düsseldorf.

What else? Helsinki, Bratislava and Split are places a bit off-ish in countries from which we don't have posters. Riga is another such place.

Long time ago, but I've been to Reading. More the point a (sadly I guess we must say former) poster used to live there.

Right, I should have realized that you must have been referring to him.

     Don't think there are any. I was going to say part of the stretch of counties between San Francisco & Pollock Pines, but then I remembered that Xahar has also been that way.

Technically yes, but that was before you and I were born.

Except for maybe OKUSA, Mechaman, and maybe CPT MikeyMike when he was stationed at Ft Sill (Lawton, Oklahoma), I've been to Cimarron, Texas, and Beaver Counties in Oklahoma (aka the Oklahoma Panhandle) as well as Harper County, Oklahoma (Buffalo, Laverne which is the county adjacent to the Oklahoma Panhandle).  Possibly Union County, New Mexico may count, too (the Northeastern most county in New Mexico between I-25 to the Oklahoma Panhandle)
