Big thanks goes to ScottD & gaopa for setting up this little Atlanta GTG.

I live south of Atlanta and the GTG was on the north side. I left about an hour before it started which gave me a 15 minute buffer for a 45 minute trip.

Well, hello traffic jam and the cause for the 10 mph for the last 10 miles:

Car Land vehicle Vehicle Motor vehicle Infrastructure

Car Land vehicle Vehicle Sky Tire

5 miles later, the southbound lanes were STILL in a mess

Tire Wheel Car Sky Motor vehicle

Finally getting up some steam and space between vehicles

We have those electronic traffic warning signs and this one basically said "You're hosed if you go this way", so I had to go another route

Looked down at my watch and see that I'm.....late. So much for my 15 minute buffer.

I finally get to the restaurant and ended meeting ScottD in the parking lot as he was walking in, too.

Here's the the GTG location and it's alot bigger than what it looks like from the outside. Great choice, Scott!

This was my first GTG and though it was great to talk about watches, it was even better to meet the people behind the screennames.

Thanks again, Scott & Bill !!!
