OK BigDog, here' some more

Day 2 starts from Statesboro Ga
Route for today


Roads are same as yesterday, but except for “Sand Beds”, not as much sand as day 1

Old water powered Grist Mill.

My family used to own one similar to this

Howards Mill


Old Cotton Picker



100 miles north of Screven GA, we enter Screven County


Now, back into some that will keep your attention


And some pretty roads

and the first thing that looks like a hill


Nuclear plant somewhere around here. We got one of these at home too


Hey, another hill


Yep, we found the nuclear power plant, The Vogtle plant has 2 units operating and 2 more under construction




International Paper Co, Augusta Newsprint mill


We stopped in Augusta for lunch and filled up with Petrol for $3.38/gl Rode 3 miles across the River
into SC and everywhere we looked, it was $2.99.
Most roads in SC were paved, but had some pretty good scenery.



Most creeks we saw were dry or almost dry, same as in SW Georgia

Lakes too




Finally get to a dirt road


More photos of SC. The dirt roads don't have 'Ditches' like we usually see. The roads have a high crown and taper off to an embankment. Works very well, we didn't hit any washouts.














Need 10" ground clearance for this log,,,, we had 9 1/2




Old Charleston Road






Back in GA, arrive at Hartwell






Let me say; Any road, especially a dirt road is a 'Good Road' as long as you're straddling 2 wheels
BUT,,,,, the best thing about day 1 and day 2 is that it gets us to DAY 3
which will be along shortly
