Title: Atlanta to Willimantic
Post by: JJBers on July 17, 2017, 12:01:37 AM
Alright, since we're about a day and a half away, I'll create this thread to keep tabs on my trip

Time as of 11:55 pm 7-16-2017.


I'm going from Home to TF Green (PVD) in the late-morning, and will be departing for MDW at 12:40 PM. After I get from MDW, I head down to ATL, and arrive sometime in the evening.

Well, I'm leaving my house in about 20 minutes.
Anyways, after I arrive at Atlanta, I'll be taking I-85/I-75 up to the Kennesaw, GA area. Then I'll stay around until July 19 or 20, then, it's off back to Home!
I will post shortly before I leave to Home

I was going to leave about a hour ago, but the fuel tank was having some issues, so I went around Midway, and got some food.

It's the airport I usually go through on my way to/from Chicagoland on a plane.  Midway isn't a bad little airport.  Decent selection of food, and not too big to get around.

I've now spent 3 hours at Midway
