Moonshine Museum, Pirkle Racing Dawsonville Ga
Fasten your seatbelt! Imagine how it felt to be a moon tripper, outrunning the sheriff while speeding along a snaking white line in the moonlit hills of north Georgia. At the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame Museum, visitors can become prohibition outlaws without going to jail!
The museum, recognized by the Georgia state legislature as the official home of the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame—in addition to housing Dawsonville's City Hall—features an entertaining multi-media presentation of the history of stock car racing in Dawson County Georgia.
After the historic town of Dawsonville purchased the foreclosed museum building from a tourist attraction, formerly known as Thunder Road, they reopened the museum and building in 2007, and they are now utilizing the back offices for administrative purposes.
But, before visitors even enter the large glass front of the spacious 40,000 square foot museum with its giant checked flag veranda, there is plenty to see outside where there is an array of vintage racing cars, and the Garden of Bricks and Winner's Circle—both bearing plaques with the names of contributors to the museum's creation.
Inside the museum, visitors will discover memorials to NASCAR racing greats, and several exhibits featuring the history and the machines of the prohibition moonshine runners that became racers and mechanics, and then NASCAR's first drivers and team owners.
Additional attractions include the museum's interactive games, racing simulators, Georgia racing artifacts, license plates, and street signs. There are also many old newspaper clips, video presentations, and numerous famous racecars that belonged to the prominent members of Georgia's racing heritage who ran the blockades to deliver their illegal cargo from Dawson County south to Atlanta and north to Knoxville. There is even an old trailer-bound moonshine still.

Craft breweries and distilleries thrive in downtown developments
Georgia's craft beer and spirits industries are booming. Thanks to recent legislation, breweries and distilleries can now offer sales direct to the consumer from their location. Cities such as Woodstock, Roswell, Athens, and LaGrange thrive with breweries as part of their downtown areas. Nationwide craft beer and spirits continue to grow in popularity across with craft beer sales up 8% in 2017 and craft spirits seeing an impressive 23.7% growth rate.
Consumers also have a renewed passion for their city’s Downtown areas. Many people make the choice to enjoy their leisure time closer to home, and having a variety of amenities available helps them to accomplish that. Breweries and distilleries frequently become key destinations in downtown areas, helping to spur the growth of related shopping and dining businesses and increasing tourism.

We visited 3 Georgia State Parks Oct 2018
On our trip to Elijay GA we visited 3 great Georgia state parks. It was the last week in October it was still not quite peak leaf season but it was getting there. I also purchased an annual park pass - and once I use it for one night of camping it will have paid for itself.
Amicalola Falls - Dawsonville GA
Fort Mountain State Park in Chatsworth GA
Stephen C Foster - Fargo GA
They all offer RV camping and have their unique strengths. We are looking forward to camping at Stephen Foster soon - it is closest to our home base and is very remote in the swamps - great for colder weather. The other 2 will have to wait for spring time.

Moonshine in Caldwell County, N C
Describing what the Moonshine days were like. From old VHS tape.
Longtime restaurateur Eugene Marra focused on food, wine and spirits as part of his profession, a career that’s lasted more than 45 years. A student of his winemaking grandfather, he took his appreciation beyond the glass when he started a vineyard in northern Georgia around 1991.
Eugene’s passion for fine spirits fueled his interest in becoming a distiller in the late 2000s, just as New York state was increasing its support of small-batch producers. Today the New York City native takes pride in the all-New York state ingredients that make up his whiskey, bourbon, gin and vodka.
The names reference Cooperstown’s baseball roots and other historic assets, but Eugene is always looking forward. The former chef continues to craft new recipes that contribute to New York’s growing reputation for high-quality distilleries.
Whether tipping a farm-to-glass beer at a brewpub, sampling some moonshine or enjoying a sip of hard cider or wine, you’ll be a part of something special in Brew Central. Central New York brewers, distillers, publicans and vintners offer the state’s best craft beverages on par with any of the United States’ finest pints. Pack up the car and head to America’s Craft Brew Destination! Craft your brew road trip today at brewcentralny.com

Dawsonville Georgia Nuclear Aircraft Laboratory 1959
The Georgia Nuclear Aircraft Laboratory (GNAL) near Dawsonville, Georia, was a nuclear facility in conjunction with the Lockheed Martin Corporation, the United States Air Force and the Atomic Energy Commission. With operations beginning in the 1950s until decommissioning in 1971, the Georgia Nuclear Aircraft Laboratory's primary goal was to create a nuclear propulsion system for military aircraft. The facility, spread out over several miles, included a hot cell building, a nuclear reactor site, and a cooling site for irradiated materials. These three separate sites were connected by an onsite narrow-gauge railway system with rail cars that transported materials to and from the three facility stations. The reactor itself, a 10 million watt reactor, was in a hollow of the forest. It was kept in a concrete pool when not in use and raised from the pit when it was to be operated. During any test or irradiation procedures when the reactor was in operation, facility employees reverted to shielded underground quarters. Once the reactor had been raised and turned on, or flashed, employees waited for the procedure to end and the reactor to be returned to its pool before again emerging from the shielded quarters.
The nuclear reactor was what is termed an air-shielded reactor. This means the reactor was unshielded when removed from its storage pool. Each time it was used to irradiate a product of any kind, it also irradiated the surrounding landscape and forest. After only a few uses, all the foliage surrounding the reactor area had died. Beginning in 1958, the Lockheed/ Dawsonville reactor site was used for extensive radiation studies and animal experiments. Conducted via contract with the University of Georgia, Emory University, and the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, these studies subjected wildlife, both indigenous to the area and introduced to the area, and the surrounding landscape to massive doses of radiation. For more information on this site, go to . This is clipped from the 1959 U.S. Air Force film, Georgia Nuclear Laboratory, Progress Report No. 1, 1959. This color film shows pan shots of landscape; construction and assembly of the Reactor Pool; Primary Equipment pit; seepage pit; water system; filter plant; Maintenance building; Critical Experiment Facility building; Weather Station; Instrumentation Lab; Audio Tower; Radiation Effects lab; technicians practicing the handling of controls in a hot cell mockup; Analytical Lab; and scenes of the first hot tests conducted 15 December 1958. The entire film is available at the US National Archives.
