Man Made of Old Mufflers

Still not there. Looks like there is officially nothing to see in Valdosta.

Man Made of Old Mufflers

There was absolutely nothing at exit 22 -- we went up to 3 miles east of I75. The Hobby Lobby is about 1 mile east of I-75 at exit 18. But we checked everything within a two mile radius -- and nothing. I think this muffler man disappeared. Sorry.
