Wednesday's Report From the Road: Atlanta
700 miles! It was our longest day on the road so far! We started in Baltimore and ended up in Atlanta.
Going into Falcons Territory we weren't sure what we were going to find. However, at the Hudson Grille, we found a lot of Patriots fans!
Most of the members of the club either move down here for work or were tired of the long, cold, snowy winters in New England. (Feeling the 70° warmth at the end of January, I can see their point.)
Even though they were originally from the Northeast, they showed us true southern hospitality! They even gave us a bag of goodies for the road. Inside that bag a 2 liter bottle of Coca-Cola, which was founded here in Atlanta and a bottle of champagne to celebrate when the Patriots win!
Due to a conference in Atlanta, it was tough to find a hotel. Thanks to Airbnb we are right next to the Georgia Dome. Fitting, right?
