Default Good to see you Mike

Looks like all is well and look forward to HBC Oshkosh. Thanks for reminding me it's the 4th Sunday Beer Tasting (tempus fugit). BTW the orange Peach is Gaffney SC
Blue skies my good friend & see everyone in a couple of months

Default Nice Write-Up!

Thanks for posting your adventure. It's nice to see pictures of people having fun at SnF. I've never been, but would like to some day, when my bird is flying.

Default Not Gaffney, GA > 'Peachoid' at Gaffney, SC

QUOTE[I didn't need to look down at the map to tell what the name of the next town I was flying over was - the large orange sphere gave it away immediately - Gaffney, GA. The "Peachoid" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peachoid) was featured in the Netflix series, "House of Cards". This is where Kevin Spacey's character, Frank Underwood, was a native of. And who says TV rots your brain???]

That's the 'Peachoid' at Gaffney, SC; along side of I-85, about 35 mi east-northeast of Greenville/Spartanburg KGSP.
