2017 Georgia Tour Blog Day Four - June 22

Another Georgia Tour in the books! From our first day June 19 in Brunswick and "The Marshes of Glynn" in coastal Georgia, we've covered almost 1,000 miles to end up in the far reaches of west Georgia in Columbus. Along the way, we've met enthusiastic, supportive alumni groups, learned through visits to businesses with which Georgia Tech has collaborated, and enjoyed fruitful discussions with governmental and University System officials. We've stood aside massive cargo ships, ridden in an autonomous tractor, viewed Georgia-built "crop-duster" airplanes up close, and tasted some of the best honey you'll ever find. What a great four days!
