Slick you may have mentioned it in your other thread but I don’t remember. Where is your destination in Georgia?

Northeast of Athens correct? Was hoping it might be a little closer. Guess it will depend on where he comes in as to how close he will be to us. My guess would be he will come in on I20 and hit I85. But I’m only guessing.

Yes, he'll regret that, but there's not much choice.

Dewey Rose is where the farm (Beaver Creek Piedmontese) is. We will grab a motel in Hartwell for the night. Return the same route but stopping at Tadlock Stockyard in Forest, MS to overnight.

Yes. The I20/I85 is what Google recommends as the fastest route. And no, I'm not looking forward to navigating Atlanta.

Atlanta isn't bad between 2 am and 5 am. We travel through there to NC quite often, but very rarely during daylight hours.

My guess is we'll be thru there between 2 and 3 that afternoon if all goes well.

Thank you very much! Taking two spares for truck and trailer so I hope I'm covered there. If this Duramax holds out I should be set.

Just heard where the governor of Georgia declared a state of emergency for the state. Kinda makes me wonder if getting fuel will be a problem.

Fill up in Birmingham and you should be able to make it back to Birmingham with no trouble. I wouldn’t think you would have an issue anyway but one never knows. I’m pretty busy Slick but if you run out call me and I will bring you some fuel. I will PM you my number.

Thanks! I sat there after posting that and figured with a 45 gal auxiliary tank I could get some of that Alabama diesel and get in and out of Georgia pretty easy.

There's a truck stop just about 5 or 6 miles into Ga called Newborns, one of the few independants left, he should be the cheapest on fuel, plus he's a close friend of mine. Ga taxes on fuel are a little cheaper than ours in Alabama.
