^^^ About 5 minutes from me. A man made lake front “mountain”. My first job was as a lift operator there when I was 13. My brother and sister both worked there and a couple people called in sick, so I filled in and eventually got a snowboard instructor position, which was fun. I spent half my childhood on the icy steep slopes of the “pimple on the prairies”. Good times, but it’s no longer used for skiing (or anything).

This watertower is about 50 miles from where I live: 


I drive by this when heading down 85

They repainted it a couple years ago. 

And my condolences on having to drive that stretch of 85. 

It's gotten better, at least in my area, but the road construction on 85 from Greenville up to the NC border has been fucking up traffic for years.

Yep. Big project from Gaffney all the way up to NC at the moment. When I moved to GA in ‘96 the work through Greenville was still underway. If I’d been smart I would have stayed in Greenville. Love that town. Love the whole upstate really.  

We should have an OG Meat Up at the outlet mall.

The woman's parent's live in North GA and I love that area as well, but it's quickly becoming North Atlanta. 

I grew up in east Tennessee and have regularly visted Atlanta since the early 90's. It was gross to me back then and has only gotten worse. 

A picnic under the peach would be a great OG meatup.
