Leaving Georgia, On Her Mind

Last night Macon spent her last night in Georgia on this hike.  She had left her mother Sunday morning from Hiawassee heading north.  They will meet again mid-day Wednesday just west of Franklin, N.C.  to bring shoe insoles, a JetBoil, assorted packages of oatmeal, noodles, hard-boiled eggs, more apples and other produce.  Macon texted her mother that she had had a good day and had hiked with a woman from a town at the base of the Cumberland Plateau where her alma mater, Sewanee sits, the town of Winchester, TN.  They will hike together until Missy meets them Wednesday.

Macon loves music and is proud of her adopted state Georgia.  She is convinced that no other state can boast the lineup of artists like Georgia has produced: Johnny Mercer, James Brown, Ray Stevens, Gladys Knight, The Allman Brothers, Otis Redding, Travis Tritt, Ludacris, Outkast, R.E.M., Ray Charles, B-52's, Widespread Panic, Trisha Yearwood, Brenda Lee, Little Richard, and that isn't including the classical stars.  One of the things on Macon's bucket list was to visit the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in Macon, Georgia but the museum closed last year.  Right now that trip will have to wait, but I am sure she will get there.

Macon will post another update on Wednesday.  Stay tuned!
