Catching up from the beginning

OK, let’s go back to the beginning. I was looking for a subject for a new book and decided to explore the gold rush here in Georgia. Jim and I went to Dahlonega, I bought some books, we went through the museum and even panned for gold. All interesting, but the gold rush started in 1829 which is about a hundred years outside my comfort zone.

On the way home we discovered the Dawsonville Moonshine Festival. Good subject, right time frame. So I bought some books, we went through the museum, visited a local (legal) moonshine distillery and even tasted white lightning. (Are you beginning to see a pattern here?) Turns out Highway #9 from Dawsonville to Atlanta was whiskey road for the trippers (drivers of the whiskey cars).  I was hooked and so began this story.
