My wife and I are heading out tomorrow morning, returning to Dahlonega via highway 28 through Franklin (lunch at Caffe Rel), then Highlands, down to Warwoman Road west to Clayton, then Tiger, a little bit of 197, and cutting west just north of Helen.

We expect to be home by 4:00 Thursday, and the temperature is supposed to stay below 80 all day really exceptional for this area at this time of year.

If you are heading south and/or west on the return ride, and need a place to stay Thursday (or Friday) night, let me know. There are many "entertaining" routes between Fontana Village and the west side of Dahlonega, some longer, some shorter.

Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.
