Look at his post history. Everything recent is mainly Atlanta. Some Pittsburgh.

LOL your first statement is WAY off. Come to think of it, so are statements #2 and #3.

If everyone would bombard the report buttons maybe we could get something done. Otherwise, the Atlanta forums are going to descend into chaos.

All of this due to ONE person? I don't think that's fair.
You guys are so insecure about Atlanta.

The Chattahoochee is more or less it and it is a medium sized river, not even navigatable. The others are not worth mentioning.

No, most other rivers have boating. The Chattahoochee is good for inner tubing, and not everyone parttakes of that.

But they are there. There wasn't a place I lived in Atlanta that didn't have a creek in close vicinity. That mountain runoff has to go somewhere.

Exactly. And the Chattahoochee is a treasure.

What other major city has a beautiful wild river in a National Park in the shadow of skyscrapers? A river so clean on the Northside you can fish for trout.

No other place in the U.S. comes to mind, but it would most certainly not be Houston.

The reason Pittsburgh might falsely lead people thinking it's much hillier, is because the core is denser, The urban fabric goes against the hills making it more oblivious from air the hills are there. In Atlanta you see a blanket of trees from air the canopy makes it more difficult to see the hills from the air.

Like this is in cobb

Dallas DART is light rail, MARTA is heavy rail I just had to get that out the way,

But in regards to topography Atlanta is not Seattle but Atlanta is one the hilliest major metros in country. There are a number of low mountains in metro Atlanta alone, Bear Mountain, 2,297 feet, Pine Log Mountain 2,260 feet, Sawnee Mountain 1,946 ft, Kennesaw Mountain 1,808 ft, Hog Mountain 1,670 feet, Stone Mountain 1,686 ft, Sweat Mountain 1,640 ft, Little Kennesaw Mountain at 1,600 ft, Hickory Log Mountain 1,545 feet, Lost Mountain 1,512 feet, Polecat Mountain 1,503 feet, Blackjack Mountain 1,378 ft, Bufford Mountain 1,325 feet, Pine Mountain 1292 ft, Snellville Mountain 1,158 feet, Cassville Mountain 1,106 feet, Collins Mountain 1,099 feet, Walker Mountain 1,089 ft and etc.

Highest Mountain Peaks in Georgia

North Georgia there are 30 mountain peaks above 4,000 ft here's top 5
Rabun Bald 4,695 feet, Dicks Knob 4,623 feet, Brasstown Bald 4,534 feet, Blood Mountain 4,446 feet, Tray Mountain 4,419 feet,

Highest Mountain Peaks in Oklahoma

Oklahoma there are 6 mountain peaks above 4,000 ft here's top 5
Robbers Roost Peak 4,469 feet, Castle Rock Pillar 4,288 feet, Winchester Mesa 4,144 feet, Sugarloaf Mountain 4,124 feet,

Highest Mountain Peaks in Arkansas

Arkansas there are no peaks above 4,000 ft here's top 5
Magazine Mountain, 2,749, Signal Hill 2,749 feet, Black Fork 2,661 feet, Blue Mountain 2,612 feet, Cameron Bluff 2,543 feet.

Yeah the Mountains in North Carolina are bigger than the ones in Georgia. But the Appalachian end in Georgia and Alabama, the mountains in Arkansas and Oklahoma aren't even as tall or numerous as the ones in Georgia itself. In fact the 3 highest peaks in metro Atlanta are not that far off from being comparable to top 5 highest peaks in Arkansas actually. Living metro Atlanta topography in the Piedmont is not that far off like living in the Ozark itself for a comparison.

Powell Mountain 3,816 feet is the 50th highest peak in Georgia but it's a 1,000 ft highier than anything in Arkansas. Again Atlanta is no Seattle but You can't compare Dallas access to mountains with Atlanta at all, and you can't ignore Georgia's mountains if your going bring up Arkansas and Oklahoma.

And I like that DFW has a lot large lakes too, a lot of people don't know that.

So first your point was that Atlanta doesn't have a water feature, which is false.

Then it was the Chattahoochee isn't accessible, which is also false.

Now your "point" is that the Chattahoochee isn't good for boating, but just inner tubing. This, once again, is false:

Boating - Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (U.S. National Park Service)
Chattahoochee River Tubing, Canoes, Kayaks, Rafts | Shoot the Hooch
Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area | BOATING |

Now please, for your own sake, just stop. This looks bad, even for you.
