    For those following @kath and her Great North American Adventure threads, she’s in town this week. Sounds like a good excuse for us to meet up and have a beer! I was thinking Tuesday night at the Downwind Restaurant at PDK.

    Who’s in?

    Me! (Duh)
    Will likely need help with transportation to/from the GATech area.

    I'm interested (not committed yet, though). Point me to a thread about her adventures and let's talk about arrival time at PDK. Better be 6:30 or later for me, more if I need to be @kath's transportation.

    Man, if I didn’t have a full schedule on Wednesday, I’d almost be tempted to drive down for this.

    Pics please!

    Sounds good. I work in downtown, so GATech would be mostly on the way.

    Where around GATech? Kath, if you’re really adventurous I’m a couple of stops south on the Marta rail next to the Peachtree Center station. ;)

    While you’re in Atlanta Uber is a great way to get around.

    Last thread update here was this one:
    Kath's North America adventure, part IV (Dallas edition), which has links to earlier parts within... but I've been putting most of my stories and pictures (and more long-winded writing) on this blog:
    http://beetlejuiceadventure.wordpress.com

    Six months in, I'm halfway through the trip, and somewhere around the 8500-mile mark.

    I'll be in whichever building hosts the Physics Department, and staying at an AirBnb just on the north edge of campus.

    I'm probably out if it's facing the downtown connector. But the Downwind, I can possibly make this.

    Wish I could attend, but I'm out. I forgot, but SWMBO reminded me that I'd already issued her a hall pass for Tuesday evening. So I'll be stuck on domestic duty that evening.

    yes. Connected to the Epps hangar, but go in through the Administration Building next to the tower. Upstairs, go right, at the end of the hall.

    Don't leave home without it!

    If you'd made it tonight you could have taken one home with you.
