33rd anniversary and took the Mrs for our first XC to Jekyll Island (09J) for an overnight. Weather both ways, typical summer southeast convective crap. ADSB kicked butt on the way down, showed a path between a couple cells. Not relying on it, but rather just gave an idea that I could get through. Easy to see the rain from the cells and get through to the airport which was clear and calm. On the way back the ATL area was blowing up. Was considering landing short and waiting stuff out as cells were tight against the NE corner of the Bravo. Asked ATL Approach if it was clear going around the Bravo to the south (KRYY was destination). Approach said yes, but added that another pilot had threaded through OK, and I could dry direct PDK, RYY. Tried it and had a much shorter and smoother path through to RYY. Really a great help from a pretty busy controller. 09J is a fantastic little airport, very nice folks and beautiful location.
