Georgia - "The Peach State"

Robb: "How about my home state Georgia!

There's Stone Mountain, Six Flags, and tons 'o beautiful hiking trails. It's cold as hell in the winter, and hot as hell in the summer (living here in Florida so long, I've forgotten what a "season" is).

There's the Georgia Peaches, and peanuts. If you like onions, have a Vidalia. The Dogwoods are a sight to behold and up in the norther part of the state, you should see the leaves change color!

Did I mention all the clay?"

What about the city of the southeast, Atlanta! And one of the finest engineering schools in the nation, Georgia Tech.

Georgia is the largest state east of the Mississippi river. From where I live, I can go to the mountains to watch waterfalls, or I can go to the beach to catch a tan, and I could do both in the same weekend if I wanted to.

Georgia has the most friendly people per square inch than any other place I've been. Our women are beautiful and our men are chivalrous. We walk slowly, talk slowly and like grits for breakfast. We have Atlanta for you fast-lane types, and Savannah for those who aren't in such a hurry.

On the coast, the local oysters beat the hell out of anything New Orleans has to offer. The barbeque is exquisite. The shrimp are plentiful and delicious. In the spring, the place looks like wonderland when the azaileas, dogwoods and wisteria bloom.

Shit. Georgia beats the hell out of any place I've ever been.

When I lived in Atlanta there was GREAT driving. Some parts o' that city are just beautiful, especially when the dogwoods are in bloom.

Simplicity is a virtue: All colas are Coke.

We love to confuse interlopers: There are more "Peachtree" named roads in Atlanta than you can easily count. We know which one to take because we care enough to learn. It keeps lazy people out and those who love GA here. The random one-way streets serve the same purpose.

1) The weather. Especially the spring.
2) Despite everything, Atlanta still has plenty of trees.
3) And it is quite possibly the most queer-friendly city in the South.
4) The beach of Tybee Island on a hot summer day.
5) Having a conversation with friendly strangers walking their dog in a Savannah graveyard.
6) Yes, the Vidalia.
7) And the music.
8) And the 'cue.
9) And the weather, again.

The reason I love Georgia is twofold:

1. When it snows, you never have to shovel, it will melt before you need too.

2. The Georgia government is prohibited by law to meet for more than 45 day a year. This keeps the lawmakers from creating excessive regulation just to justify their existance. A damn yankee can appreciate that.

By the way, do you know the difference between a yankee and a damned yankee in the state of Georgia? A yankee goes home...

Don't forget the great city of Athens, known far and wide for the incredible variety of music, but also great for the University of Georgia Bulldogs, and the Grit, which is the finest eating establishment I've ever been to. My body is stuck in the frozen north, but my heart and soul roam the streets of Athens.

Let us not forget The Varsity and Varsity Jr. -- "What'll you have? Two chili dogs, fries, peach pie and a Frosted Orange." And let's not forget pecans from southwest Georgia; none other than Cazzie Russell coaching basketball at the Savannah College of Art and Design; woman-watching at Lenox Square; the Atlanta skyline as you come up from I-75 South; Richardson's BBQ in Iron City, west of Bainbridge; the riverfront walk in Augusta, along the Savannah River; "the marshes of Glynn" county . . .
