How fun it is to be able to hop on a new road in the city I've always called home, and know that for at least part of the trip, I'll be lost. Technically, not lost. I've determined that the 441 bypass leads either to Wal Mart or to Milledgeville, depending on how long I want the journey to be. While this may seem strange to the directionally adept, you need to understand how Rob and I roll.
We headed out for Thanksgiving dinner to be held at the Brewer home on Snellbridge Road. By all estimates, this should have been a 20-15 minute trip. We left home at 5:50 to be there at 6:30. Our first mistake was turning on 319 rather than 80. Once we realized our error, we decided the two roads can't be THAT far apart! We'll just keep going until we run into Highway 80. Well, we pass the Johnson County line and soon come to a roadblock. JOY! The family has realized we're lost and they've sent the troops. Nope, just a roadblock. When the officer came over to check license and registration, I was laughing hysterically and holding the Garmin, henceforth known as Loser. He leaned in to look at me, probably trying to determine just how many toddies I've had. I manage to tell him that we are really lost and trying to get to Snellbridge Road. He asks, "Where ya'll from?". He probably assumed we would say Texas, Virginia, somewhere far away from middle Georgia. It was a proud moment when I announced, "Dublin". Yep, Dublin. A mere 25 miles away and we might as well be traversing the English countryside. So, he gave us directions. I couldn't locate a working ink pen, but heck, I'm good with directions so I'll just remember them. In the interest of brevity, I'll just give you snippets from the remainder of our trip.
Stepmom: Ok, Where are you?
Stepsister: Look for the cell tower and it's right past the Strut & Rut.
Dad: OK, I'm sitting by the road waiting on you.......was that you that just went by?
By the end of trip, Rob and I had started to refer to the cell tower as the "beacon of hope".
The general consensus, after we arrived at 6:50, was that the cell tower had definitely been moved.
