After a relatively uneventful drive that included a pleasant stop in Tennessee to go motorcycle riding with friends, we have arrived and begun to settle in at our winter home in tiny Ailey, Georgia.
The Hunting Club in Ailey, GA is a small gay owned campground located on an improved road in rural Georgia. There are currently 3 permanent campers if you count us though we plan to move back north for the summer. I picked this place because it’s inexpensive at $225 per month and because of the weather. The temperature here flirts with freezing, mostly in the month of January and I am not ready to leave that part of the New England experience behind.
Ailey, GA is a town lost in time. Its short main street consists of well preserved store fronts without businesses. The small railroad freight house has been repurposed into a combination City Hall and Fire Station. Ailey’s post office is open from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM six days a week. But Vidalia, GA, where the onions come from, is only 10 miles away on good fast roads and offers all of the essentials for everyday living. Vidalia has a Lowe’s home improvement store and a Walmart Supercenter, and a Handy Andy – True Value hardware store and multiple grocery stores.
