Hi everyone..not sure if anyone still reads this thread or not. My husband is from Ellijay and I used to live in Blue Ridge Ga. Few things I wanted to
add to this.
We moved to Northern Ga in 95. At least once a day without fail there are jet flyovers...this is a main area for airforce flight trainings, and we
recently had a collision crash between two jets. Now, I only moved here in 95, but my husband has lived here all his life and as far as he can
remember...Jet flyovers have always been a norm for him.
It is a fact that yes, there are spots in Ellijay Ga that have always been picked as meeting places for homosexual men..this is not me being
homophobic..its a fact..there is a place on 515 that has an area where you can park to see the site of the mountain and sunset...its nicknamed
"pickle park" because 100s of gay men were discovered one time meeting up and were arrested (because of indicent exposure and sex in a public
Carter's Lake .....is as most know man made, and its not uncommon here in Ga for the Us Army Corps of engineers to be in charge of the lakes since
they own them and built them, I think this may be due to the fact that most areas of Ga forestry are national parks and therefore owned by the
Government. I have no idea of this sort of thing, or if that is how it works, but it seems to be the case. I don't know a huge amount of Carter's
lake itself.....but these two facts.....they never bothered to remove anything in the ground when they turned it into a lake..so there are buildings,
cars, etc at the bottom of the lake, and the catfish are HUGE...when I say HUGE...I mean HUGE! when you got the Ga Aquarium, you see catfish there
that are 50+lbs, the ones in Carter's lake can reach up to 200lbs..thats not an exaggeration...no I don't have pics because I've personally have
never gone fishing at Carter's Lake, however, catfish are bottomfeeders and in carter's thats all they do is sit along the bottom and gobble up
everything. people have reported seeing them..but the catching of any of them normally means a snapped line.
and now the weird part of my story. Obviously with living in Ellijay, this means that Dawsonville is only about 40 minutes away, where there is a
documented cement covered abandoned nuclear base. My husband says he can remember quite clearly back in the 80s..he was just a little boy and on the
news everyday and being raised by his grandparents, along with an uncle who had been in Vietnam, he heard talk of the fear of nuclear war...he had
been out riding his bike and normally we have amazingly awesome sunrises and sunsets, but he knew that, as I said he lived there all his life..on this
particular day he had been outside playing and it was early morning, he said the sky was red....the whole sky...not just where the sun was..but the
entire sky was red, and everything even seemed to look like it had a red sheen to it...like when you put on tinted glasses. he had run inside to get
his grandma and she came out, now, she was in her 50s and had lived in ga all her life..she knew the difference between a sunrise/set and the sky just
being red...the sky was red. They never saw it happen again, but they weren't the only ones who remembered seeing it (his grandmother passed away of
cancer in 97...she smoked alot) he says he doesn't remember what ever happened with the reports, but the it was def not the result of sunrise. Others
in old newspapers have reported red sky reports closer to dawsonville. Just wondering if this was the result of Dawsonville or what you guys are
speaking of in Ellijay. My husband when I told him, says he has no knowledge of any underground base in Ellijay, nor any strange happenings, but
then..he's never known about it to go over there and see.
