I have recently decided that I AM going to Palmetto Tat Days this coming Sept 5-6th!!
Me and my beloved Moto Guzzi motorcycle will be zig-zagging our way through the secondary roads of America heading to Toccoa, Georgia.
I am busy prepping my motorcycle & camping gear for the journey.
I am also creating more Glass-Enameled Copper Tatting Shuttles. The enameled shuttles were actually the impetus/excuse to make the trip.
I invited my husband along to make the trip with me, but he declined….so its just me.
I plan to take a week to get there and a week to get home. My MO is to take secondary highways (no interstates!) and to camp (tent-out) as many nights as I can. I ‘feel’ safe(r) when traveling secondary highways and going through smaller towns. I’m fairly careful when traveling but do feel a hightened sense of insecurity when around big cities and interstate highways–they ‘creep’ me out—everything is so impersonal.
I leave Saturday and am planning to be in Toccoa, Georgia on Thursday. Google maps says the distance should be 1075 miles but the way I travel, it will be more. Who knows what I will see and the people I will get to talk to on my way there and back!!!! I’m a slight Extrovert (according to Myers-Briggs Test). I really am ‘my father’s daughter’ in that I love to talk to people. My favorite thing is to eat in local diners, sitting at the counter. Eventually the ‘old guys’ will start up a conversation with me and I learn stuff.
