On the road to the mountains and back

We've been back from our fall trip to Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee for several days, but it's been a little more difficult to recover because of a few unpleasantries on our return. We've almost quit blogging but felt this was a special trip that was like old vacations in which we packed just about all we could into a week of travel.

The 43rd Annual Octoberfest in Helen, Georgia, spurred us on the get it planned and get on the road in an Enterprise rental car. Wendell drove all the 1672 miles on the Chrysler before we turned it back in at Foley, Alabama.

Blogging really takes too long to go into details. What we do feel, is photos and even a couple of videos tell the story better than writing about it.

We stayed in motels in Cedartown, GA; Clayton, GA; Dillard, GA; and Villa Rica, GA, leaving on October 10 and returning on October 17.

While we were gone, some tiny rodents (mice) had a exciting time inhabiting our place and some of them even met their maker -- what a STINK!

Also, while doing a week's worth of laundry, the old clothes washer bit the dust.

Are you beginning to see the negative side to the trip now?

Moving right along, we'll just launch you into the photos.
