    I am currently sitting in the Bloomington, IL airport terminal waiting on my flight to Atlanta where I will bring my Dark Cloud to the Peach Tree State for five days...

    Anyone wanna bet that the weather improves in Illinois and goes elsewhere down South?:dv

    Anyway, I will be checking in occassionaly while doing the good work for all you Illinoisans so I hope you all have a great week - those poor people in Atlanta ahve no idea what wrath I bring with me... :z

    It has been a long but amazing day and I wish all of the "Mother's out there a Happy "Mother's" Day!

    I have arrived and the wind she be a blowin!

    As soon as I walked out to cross the street for the hotel my Cabela's hat blew off!!!:eek:

    We will try our darndest for the rain as I was sure in it this morning turkey hunting!!!:sp

    I had 51+ MPH winds and was looking for Geraldo Rivera to come out of the woods with a live telecast covering Hurricane Bob what with sheet rain blowing horizontal over the field I was watching!!!:l

    However, I would sure go for some pizza, chicken, burgers, BBQ, or the like as I am STARVED!!!:z

    I was checking the Georgia Refuge forum to see about assistance on where to go or eat and they hadn't posted much in recent weeks...

    Back at you tomorrow with a weather update!

    Zett, Atlanta is an awful big place especially when you factor in the traffic. PM me for good eats depending on where you are, but THE VARSITY is a must. The ATL ain't what it used to be but there is still some good here.

    God Bless you!

    My biggest issue is NO WHEELS!!!:cry

    I am so use to driving everywhere...

    I am staying at the Renaisasance off North STreet and there is subway station nearby (I am tooooo poor for taxis) and have only two places I might hit up on while here - Bass Pro and Fry's Electronics - or ANY other good hunting store!:tu

    Right now I am resting with my Coke and VO with some popcorn I just nuked in their microwave - I brought all my own (THANK GOD!).

    I am not sure how much spare time I will have (all will be after 4:30 PM) but will try and get out once or twice since I am here through Friday and fly home on a late flight. Kids are home holding down the fort and hopefully all will be well until I return.

    Thanks for the feedback!:clap

    As for you Howard....:l


    I FORGOT TO ADD THE WEATHER FOR ATLANTA - LINK

    And tonight it says, "Wind Advisory in effect until midnight EDT tonight... "

    And Rain is in the forecast for Wednesday through Friday night, clearing on Saturday...

    Be careful Howard, this is what happened outside Atlanta when I arrived yesterday and I could be planning a visit, an EXTENDED visit to your neck of the woods real soon...:eek:

    And GA Woody,

    Thanks for the tip about the Varsity as it is right across the street and I just had lunch there - BBQ pork and some of the best onion rings ever! And, it was FAR cheaper than here where a bottle of water in my room costs $5!!!:tu :tu

    DO you think a person might not remember there is a bathroom, the room has glasses and there is an ice machine down the corridor? :h
