Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever struck Judy and me today, so, we had to get out of the ‘cabin”.  Judy has had a little bug for the past two days and she was tired of sleeping and moping around in her PJs. We used this as an opportunity to go to one of our favorite BBQ eateries. Just like all the other four thousand BBQ restaurants in GA. Fresh Air has been voted “the best BBQ in GA.  I can attest that it is the best in GA!  It has been around since 1929 and I know for a fact I’ve been eating there since at least 1956. My dad always stopped there when we went to and from Atlanta, long before I75. The BBQ at Fresh Air is the tangy tomato and vinegar style.

The original 1929 building.
Always a line to order!
The BBQ plate is worth the wait.
After stopping to eat we decided to drive about three miles south to Indian Springs State Park.  Since we can’t go camping just now we thought we would enjoy riding through the park to have a look.  It is a very nice state park located just a few miles from I75 near Jackson, GA.

Conveniently located near I-75 in middle Georgia, Indian Springs is one of the oldest state parks in the United States and a popular spot for outdoor recreation. For centuries, Creek Indians collected the spring water for its healing qualities, and during the 1800s, the area was a bustling resort town. Today, visitors can still sample the spring water flowing inside the stone Spring House built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression.



Park guests can enjoy wading in Sandy Creek or swimming in McIntosh Lake, named for Creek Chief William McIntosh who signed an illegal treaty deeding Indian land to Georgia in 1825. A small museum, open seasonally, highlights Creek Indians, the resort era and CCC history. Cottages and campsites may be reserved for overnight stays.

Thanks for stopping by.
