Here’s how I get from my house in Virginia-Highland to Buckhead:
North on N. Highland Ave. until it forks – take the left fork (Lenox Rd.)
Where Lenox Rd. dead-ends into Cheshire Bridge Rd. cross Cheshire Bridge (at the Waffle House) onto Alco St.
Take Alco one block until it dead-ends into Melante Dr. – right onto Melante.
Go about 50 feet on Melante and take the first left onto Northrope Dr.
Take Northrope a couple blocks until it dead-ends into Lindbergh Dr. – left onto Lindbergh.
Take Lindbergh for about a mile or two to a side street called Acorn Ave. – take a right onto Acorn. (Note: the section on Lindbergh – specifically heading west on Lindbergh going under I-85 -- is the only part of the route where the traffic can be hairy.
The idea behind the jog through Alco, Melante and Northrope is to minimize the time spent on Lindbergh. Acorn is part of the Garden Hills neighborhood – usually considered part of Buckhead.)
Acorn crosses West Wesley Rd. which is a pretty good road for cycling and it will take you all the way to the west side of town – where you can pick up Paces Ferry. There are probably other, better ways of getting over there – and I’m interested in hearing about it
Sheriff: You have a lot of experience with bounty hunters, do you?
Mattie Ross: That is a silly question. I am here to settle my father’s affairs.
Sheriff: All alone?
Mattie Ross: I am the person for it. Mama was never any good at sums and she could hardly spell “CAT”.
