Title: So near yet so far
Post by: Slavedave on March 01, 2010, 10:55:46 PM
So, my first trip to the States took place over the last week and where should I be staying?  Duluth in Atlanta! A mere stones throw(considering I travelled from Dublin in Ireland) from the HQ. 
I had hoped to get some free time to be able to contact the main man and arrange a visit to see the "hatchery" where ZD's are created but it just wasn't happening on this trip.  Maybe the first of many trips though so you never know.
America was a blast!  Can't wait to come back some day and experience more of that warm Southern hospitality!

Hi Dave,

Wow...that WAS close! You were only about an hour away (depending on Atlanta traffic).
So glad you experienced real Southern Hospitality! Yes, please do let us know if you ever get here again...we hope we'll get to meet you next time!

In the meantime, go well!
Gina

Thanks Gina,
Next time I will probably hire a car to ive me more mobility.  Will give you a shout if a trip is looming (maybe I'll bring in my LT for a tune-up!).

I had a similar heartbreaker last Halloween... I was in Florida for a conference for 5 days and REALLY wanted to rent a car to head up there, but it just wasn't to be. 

As a funny sidenote, while I was down there, I called David on the phone to tell him how close I was... he didn't pick up so I closed my flip phone.  5 hours later I opened my phone and that call was STILL ACTIVE.  With the roaming charge it was almost $300!  Fortunately after some panicked calls, they removed it from my bill.
