Circumnavigate that lake for a few thrills.

Looks like a break in the weather and I just happen to have to go do an estimate on the back side of said lake......

Hey, Clay --

Do I have this on a route that you wrote out for me on a paper plate?

Go get it!

Well Lilo decided she liked the area and wanted to hang for a bit.

She is still in the area.

Proper pics when I get home to a computer.

Land, I think that road is on the official paper plate map of Rabun County. If not you may have to come by for an updated version.

Weird, I was seeing an "L" in your userid that wasn't even there. Wifey told me to go bach here and check it. According to her I add an extraneous "L" to more than one word. "Alvacado" for example.

(Blame it on the 70's I suppose.) Anyway Fido, I'd still like to see these two GS's side-by-side sometime. Didn't you tell me you are on the Noontootla (sp) some. We just purchased a cabin on Little Mountaintown. Maybe we can ride over Grassy or something sometime.

Lilo liked Lake Rabun










She really liked the spot and did not want to leave but had heard something about circumnavigating the lake and wanted to check it out, so I said lets go.

However, Flux's name does have an L in it.

So Lilo and I went on a little ride. She had gotten over the fact that I had left her at the Cabbage Head Doll factory (her words, not mine) and was glad to now be in such a beautiful area.

Our first stop was the Lake Rabun Dam. Not all that impressive now but when you think about when it was built...




A few curvy roads.





A visit to one of the lake cabins for an estimate.

So after getting a little tour Lilo wanted to stay in the area. She heard there is a good Pizza place nearby open Thurs and Friday evenings and Sat and Sunday all day. There is also a neat old hotel with a bar and restraunt. So we wound up stopping nearly where we started.

It really is only fair for someone else that hasn't spent much time in this area to check it out, grab Lilo, and move the tag.

That said, here is the new tag.

Lilo liked the look of this old cistern





She decided to take a nap on top.

Good job Dirtdabber....and good on ya for leaving it up there for someone else to enjoy.

Someone needs to give Lilo the Tag Whore a bath. I started to dunk her in the lake but figured I'd drop her and then what the heck was I gonna do??

And that brings up a concern.....What are we going to do when some outsider stumbles upon Lilo ( a kid or a landscape and maintenance guy) and takes her out of the game? Maybe we ought to have a plan??????

Dirtdabber, what kind of estimates are you giving??? I'm guessing it roofs??

mb, lets ride sometime.....I've got a 21 yr old (pretty new to dual sporting) with a KLR and we've been spending some time up in the Cohutta's lately.

Brown, J Dixon the fireman works for us part-time...said he knows you.
