Conyers, Georgia

For the second time in the last five years, I had occasion to drive near Conyers, Georgia to refuel.

I stopped at a Shell Station just off interstate I-20. The behaviors of those standing around was repulsive and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Grown men were walking around the parking lot in their underwear. A woman in her 30's was standing in the door openly prostituting herself to one of the men, yelling across the parking lot: "do you want some of this"?

I was shocked. This disgusting behavior only went on only in the sleezy parts of large cities when I grew up. Now apparently it has spread out of Atlanta to over 30 miles away.

Warning: Do not stop near Conyers, Georgia if you can help it. Refuel in Columbia, SC or after the turn to I-285 or I-85.

On a happier note, Eufaula, Florida was a very nice and proper town that I recommend for a brief fuel stop or lunch.
