I love how we pull into these obscure RV parks that Google Maps takes us to after dark, having no idea where we are, only to rise in the morning to a surprise location. The Barnyard RV park just outside of Columbia was just what we needed.
Off we went to Stone Mountain Park in Georgia about 30 min. outside of Atlanta. Have you heard of this place? The largest high relief sculpture in the world of famous confederates – Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and President Jefferson Davis.
It gave a chance to get a hike in, the quest to touch Stone Mountain was a must do this trip.
A Stone Mountain selfie… that is the tram straight up!
Ben and Drew are sort of tolerating my camera, but later at the BBQ place, I was being an ’embarrassing tourist’.
We left Stone Mountain in search of Atlanta’s best BBQ and did we ever find it. I was just sorry to be driving there in the dark through the little five points area, amazing homes in a beautiful area. For all of you going to #iste14 in Atlanta this year, somehow you have to find your way to the Fox Brothers BBQ.
The wait was worth it, we soaked in the sights and smells having local brews- Sweetwater Festive Ales
There were so many great things to try here that we ordered the big sampler and shared. Smoked dry ribs with a side of sweet,spicy sauce and indulgent chicken fried ribs were amazing hits. The boys loved the chicken wings the best, and pulled pork, although amazing was a close third to the ribs. Good thing we shared!
We all sampled Frito Pie- brisket with chili and Fritos…it was ok, we actually left most of it because we were so full!
So the rankings so far:
Drew-1. Hudsons 2. Fox Bros Ben- 1. Fox Bros 2. Hudsons
Brian- 1. Fox Bros 2. Hudsons Lisa- 1. Fox Bros 2. Hudsons
We drove off north of Atlanta getting to see lots of the downtown as we went and now we are down for the night somewhere in the dark with no idea where we are! (I still need to get this heater working, it’s freezing in here!)
Tomorrow, off to the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
