2021-09-23 GA,Atlanta to TN,Chattanooga - with Seniors On the Go Tours to see National Medal of Honor Museum and Lookout Mountain


The drive from my house is about 2 hours (114 miles) by google-maps.


The group leaves from a church parking lot off Ronald Reagan Parkway in Snellville, GA. Normally, I have no problem getting there. I get up about 6AM and leave around 7AM. This morning, I left at 6:30AM and on I-285, only 2 miles away from my house, I was in bumper-to-bumper traffic. There had been a recent car wreck and I saw the tow truck pass by me using the emergency lane. I had to wait for the traffic to move after the wreck and was about a hour later than my normal time to meet the bus.



The National Medal of Honor Museum honors those soldiers who have represented an action of incredible of sacrifice or valor. It is located near the downtown Tennessee Aquarian and was closed during the covid-pandemic.

I would like you to see a picture of the beautiful day that we had. On top of Lookout Mountain, it was a 'perfect' day. Beautiful blue sky and a perfect temperature of 72 degrees F. Also, there was no wind and the sunshine warmed me enough that I could have stayed there much longer.

A new Buc'ees store has opened in Adairsville GA. We stopped for a break in the drive and some shopping and snacks.
