Good Monday Morning everyone !!!!
No work on the old girl yet, been trying to finish the bathroom in the motorhome. It is taking a little longer then I thought it would. I am a lot better mechanic than I am a carpenter so it takes me a little longer. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I dunno where the cold weather went, but I'm not complaining!!

I posted this up in the PSD forum, but I thought y'all might enjoy it as well. This is an aftermarket T4-style turbo mount and up-pipes and a Borg Warner S366 turbo.

Keep plugging away at it jason, can't see pics at work but I bet it looks great. Had a Great time with Grubb and his wife over dinner. Finished up brifings Saturday around lunch and headed home.

I worked like a mad man yesterday and almost have the bathroom remodel/ repair complete on the Winnebago. I should be able to knock out the last few things during the week, hopefully before the wet and cold weather really sets in.

First time in the Georgia chat thread for me, guys, so please bear with me.

For those that don't know me, I normally hang my hat on the 7.3 forum, and am watching Jason's build over there.

Reason I dropped in: My wife, Marge, and a girlfriend are going to Atlanta next month for a commercial "gift show", and then a Springer Dog show up in Gwinnett County.

They are coming in a couple of days early and asked me if I knew any "fun things to do" in Atlanta, as I used to get out to Fulton County Airport a lot, but that was some twenty-plus years ago. Well, I don't. However, that's where FTE comes in! Regional Chapter!!

Whatcha' got? These gals are both in their '60's, so clubbing is probably out. Since it's going to be January, maybe that should not be "outside" things.

Daytime things to see?

Pop

Welcome !!!!
I do not live in Atlanta so I may not be the best on things to do, But I know of a few places when I visit.

Underground Atlanta is different, shopping and eating.
Welcome |*Underground Atlanta

The Aquarium is very cool: Georgia Aquarium | Dolphin Show | AT&T Dolphin Tales

The Mall of Georgia is a little drive north but worth the trip: Mall of Georgia®, a Simon Mall

The Coke museum: Atlanta Georgia Attractions - Attractions in Atlanta Georgia | World of Coca-Cola

CNN studio tour: Inside CNN Studio Tour at CNN Center in Atlanta, Ga - CNN.com

Teds montana grill is a great place to eat: Ted's Montana Grill

The varsity is a landmark, it has hit and miss reviews on the food. The Varsity :: What'll ya have!

Here is a cool website to check out on fun things to do in Atlanta: Things to Do in Atlanta - Explore 50 Fun Things to Do in Atlanta

I hope this helps.

Stephen,

That helps a LOT!! Thanks! That shopping stuff should be right down their "alley"!

That should get her started in her research. She's still got a month to decide what they're going to see, and this should give her plenty of ideas!

Again, THANKS! I knew the FTE guys would be the best source!

Good Morning Everyone,
Pops, glad I could help. Atlanta has alot of cool stuff to do, I am sure they will find some stuff to keep them busy. It has been raining almost non stop since yesterday and the cooler weather has moved in here too. My garden is really liking the rain.

Pop,

Stephen's suggestions are great. There is PLENTY to do in downtown for sure. Lots of history stuff if you're interested.

We are about 2hrs northeast 'up in the mountains' if y'all have time for a scenic drive. It's all 4 lane divided hwy to our town (Blairsville) and arguably one of the prettiest 4 lane roads anywhere. There are several waterfalls, mountain lakes, and the (2) highest points in GA (4500-4800ft) within a few miles of our house. Mom has rental cabins on our property and I can provide more than a days 'tour' if ya have a chance to make an Excursion!

If you're interested, lemme know and I'll tell Mom to give you the 'family' rate!
