Route 17 - Gerogia

BBQ, Route 17, Georgia

Last year I took Route 17 from Virginia to Florida and back north again. I find Route 17 to be similar to Route 66 with al the old business venues that have been let go over the years. My guess is at one point this was the only way from the northeast to Florida, and we all know what one good interstate will do to the mom and pop business ventures on these older highways.

These places are dis-appearing very quickly and need to be rendered for history to see - Postcards form a Dis-appearing America.

Have to sleep now - in Wales and knackered (note the use of local slang) from driving all day. Add that to the internet being in the hotel lobby means I will not be posting very much the next few days.

Off tomorrow to tour the coast of Wales - stay tuned...

Happy weekend everyone....

  1. Love your photos, especially this one. Do you know what BBQ Joint this is or what city/county/state it's in? Keep up the great work.


  2. Yulee, Georgia is the place - just north of the FLorida border....
