You can pull this up in Google Maps so that you know when we will be turning, plus how sharp some of the curves are!!

quick note- I did this same trip in September- South on 28 Franklin, then further along 28 to Ellijay road then around on Walnut Creek road. like this...

https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Fonta...0805!3e0?hl=en
Just a warning, Ellijay is really narrow. Cafe Rel is worth the trip.

Good point. My +1 has ZERO plans to go on ANY of the group rides with ME however Jan Oliver wants to go to every event, every lunch, every social meeting so YES I'll have a +1 for lunch but she'll be meeting us there, arriving in another vehicle. My right hand seat (fully equipped with barf bags) is available if someone wants a ride-along.
