Last day in Atlanta

Today got off to a lazy start by watching stage 1 of the Tour De France live on TV. They've changed the format a bit this year, and instead of the traditional prologue, they jumped right in to racing stage 1. It made for an exciting finish, but I don't know if I like the change. Stephen (Crocs retail manager working the tour - also a cyclist) and I headed over to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch, and then the majority of the afternoon was spent geocaching in the Atlanta area. We visited spots near Piedmont Park, Georgia Tech University, a random totem pole, and a cool area back in the woods with an old tower and stream. I found a log crossing the stream and felt compelled to walk on it.

Also near the tower and stream was a sign that dumbfounded all of us.

... we ended up parking in an area for "van pool only" so we probably should have just followed the signs and parked in the unauthorized contractors area as that was the more accurate of the two for our situation.

We headed back to the hotel and went 0 for 3 on caches near the hotel downtown on our way to dinner. Dinner was decent Mexican food, following which we headed back to the hotel to get on the internet for a while, and here I am.

Tomorrow we'll be headed to Nashville, TN to relax for a few days and reorganize the trucks prior to heading to Pleasant Prarie, Wisconsin for an event this upcoming weekend.

Also, make sure to check back a few entries from time to time, as I'm adding more pictures to those entries as I get them on my computer.

  1. I love the sign. I'm catching up on your blog posts as we speak. :) Hope you're having fun, iPhone and all!
