    Obituaries in the News

    I just got through watching SATB (special DVD edition which includes doucumentary short "Loaded Up and Truckin'", and it's one movie I can enjoy over and over again. God rest Jerry's soul and may he eternally jam on with Elvis, Chet, and the rest of the gang in "Nashville Heaven".

    "the Georgia Road Geek" To Salute Jerry Reed

    On Saturday, September 6, 2008, "The Georgia Road Geek" on BlogTalkRadio (GRG On BTR) will pay tribute to the late Jerry Reed (1937-2008). Fellow roadgeek Jason Ilyes and I will be talking about Jerry and our all-time favorite "roadgeek movie", "Smokey and the Bandit" (SATB), which co-starred Jerry as trucker Cledus "Snowman" Snow. Please see my latest blog for a SATB clip featuring Jerry Reed and his song, "Eastbound and Down". Thanks in advance for listening.

    Dave, Thanks for watching my videos and for your kind words. I like the "National Through the Windshield Video Alliance" and know several other fellow roadgeek video makers who'd be great members as well. Thanks again and I look forward to participating in these forums. Steve

    Welcome - Please Introduce Yourself!

    Denny, Thanks for the welcome and it's always good to hook up with fellow fans of roads, Mythbusters, etc. As for Interstates, no problem. I don't make a big deal out of them either, especially after "clinching" them... and the Atlanta-area Interstates can sometimes be frustrating at rush hour (see my "I-285 SUCKS!!!" video on YouTube.) On Memorial Day weekend, my wife and I are heading down to Florida "off the beaten path" and I'm looking to "clinch" at least 20 more counties between Georgia and Florida. BTW, I learned about American Road (AR) magazine via your website. Thanks again and I look forward to participating more on the AR forums. Thanks again and take care! Steve

    Welcome - Please Introduce Yourself!

    Chris, First of all, thanks for the welcome. For a nice scenic drive through the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, I would say take GA 52 from Dalton to Maysville, then GA 98 from Maysville to Commerce. This route is (mostly) 2 lanes and takes you past Fort Mountain State Park, Amicalola Falls State Park (where hikers can take an approach trail to the southern end of the Appalachian Trail), and Dahlonega (America's First Goldrush - 1828). Through that section alone, you will be able to enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains. If you have any other questions or concerns, then please let me know. Thanks again for the welcome and I hope you have a pleasant trip. Steve

    Welcome - Please Introduce Yourself!

    My name is Steve Williams and I am a lifelong "roadgeek". In October, 2005, I started "The Georgia Road Geek" (GRG) as a weekly road-related blog. Months later, I purchased webspace on GoDaddy and expanded GRG to include special feature pages, photos, and my video series "ROADGEEK-CAM!!!". Late last year, I created the world's first "roadgeek talkshow" on BlogTalkRadio that I call "GRG On BTR". I have just subscribed to American Road magazine and look forward to receiving my first issue soon. In the meantime, please feel free to visit my site, read my blogs, watch my videos, and listen to my talkshow, and I thank you in advance for doing so.
