Would you consider Lumpkin part of South Georgia? (no, not Lumpkin county)

If so, that town looked quite depressed when I stopped through there last year. It’s near Providence Canyon.

Has anyone been to Thomasville recently? It could certainly not be considered depressed, but it's always been my favorite South Georgia town and I haven't been in years. Hope they're doing well.

Personally, I like it!

Just drove thru there today. The two main drags have been repaved and believe me the state wouldn't do it if the town was dead. Gas at Shell is $1.95; G&G $1.99 and Circle K (ex Flash Foods) is $1.89

Thomasville and Americus are both looking good.
