I took another short ride today, focusing on dirt roads, in hind sight I probably should have named this "Backroads close to home, Oh well.

Left home and soon got onto Millerville Road

I'm starting to get hungry by this time and plan on stopping in Portal for a cheeseburger. But as I approach I start thinking about this place only about ten more miles on two lane blacktop. Its in Metter near I-16

Good BBQ (for Georgia) great fried squash, wonderful Coconut Cream Pie. The smiling pig on the sign obviously doesn't know what is going on in the kitchen.

Finding more dirt roads heading generally north toward home

close up of the peanuts turned for drying and harvesting. They are harvested with a sort of a combine-like machine, put into wagons and hauled to a central location for processing

More fun roads and then finally up ahead through the trees,,,,,home sweet home.
