    Think I wanna check it out.

    I just listened to Rob Woodall speak, representative from Georgia, and he seems like a good dude.

    If that's the kind of people they get to represent them, I think i'd like to get to know the people that populate that state.

    I was stationed here in 1996. Before that I thought it was a backwards state for some reason.:dunno: I was not here more than a week when I fell in love with this state. The people are so caring and nice. I never want to liveup north again.
    I picked here of all the places I have seen in 24 years of military travel. I have no regrets.

    Come and vist us.
    Hope you like sweet tea.:supergrin:

    Something GA has in common with IL: A really damn fine state with ONE major black eye that keeps everyone looking bad. The biggest difference is that Chicago got their hooks into the laws while in GA, Atlanta doesn't screw up the rest of the state.

    I enjoyed my time in GA (Macon/WR area for 8 years) but I SERIOUSLY missed having seasons. That, and with a (at the time) 5 year old kid, getting back to where I had some family around was really useful. Babysitters on call so my wife and I can have the occasional "us" time.

    No complaints about GA, just (as was said) there's only one home.






    Oh, and BTW, we're working on the Chicago problem:

    Georgia, Georgia, Georgia on my mind. Born and raised here. Lived in North Carolina for a year and hated it. I love GA! I live right on the chattahoochee river and can fish for trout everyday. Drive 30 minutes south on 400 and I'm in Atlanta. Hour and a half north and mountains appear.

    Yes, I was in that sideshow freak's district for a while, too (due to gerrymandering, not by choice), but she never represented me.

    Recently moved to Georgia. I've never been happier anywhere else I've lived. The Georgia people are "Southern Sweet!!". Even when they are giving you bad news, they do it with a smile on their face and make you believe you should like it. The only thing I think I may not like is the heat, but I haven't spent a summer here yet, so I'm not sure on that yet.
