    Well with the nicer weather it would be easy to social distance outside. I went on a car cruise with about 100 cars and no problems distancing in the parking lots and certainly not on the cruise.

    I did a drive two weeks ago with Tom, Paul, and Clyde, testing out a day trip route that might be of interest to the club. It's through the mountains around Chattsworth, Elijay and Jasper. Since a number of the members are in the northern suburbs it might be more appealing or not. Once in the mountains it's a two hour loop without a stop, but could include a brunch or lunch stop along the route or at my mountain house. There's a shorter variant that's only an hour or so as well. So basically it's an "all" day event, not any worse than the time it takes to play a round of golf ;)

    I've noticed they have grooved the center line and shoulder on some of those roads up there, like GA-136 and GA-52, effectively making the lane very narrow. It's even in a passing zone in one area. It really upsets a car with a stiffer suspension. It's a shame.

    Yes I know. The grooving on 136 is mainly in Pickens county as the Dawson county portion is not that way. Keeping it in the lane to avoid crossing the center line provides an additional challenge and test of driving skills. Still can be a lot of fun though. Ask Tom as he followed me up the mountain.

    This is the route we took. the way points were a little off, but you get the picture. We meet in Jasper and went north on 136 toward Elijay clockwise. We stopped at my mountain house on 136 (Tate Mountain Estates), basically at the top of the mountain before heading back down to Jasper. I don't recall but I do not think 52 is grooved from Elijay to ~Amicalola, and 136 from Amicalola to the Pickens county line is definitely not grooved.
