    I know the overall sense of geography is limited here on ODT, but how the heck is Dahlonega even *close* to being considered 'Metro Atlanta'? I try to sort by the location tags, and this keeps coming up. An hour outside of the perimeter is metro Atlanta? By that measure so is Macon.....

    I live in Dahlonega.
    I thought my info said it was "NE GA"
    And I certainly don't consider myself even close to Atl.
    Maybe I'm wrong.

    But if I AM considered metro Atl, then I'll be moving :)

    Sir location is based on your proximity to Atlanta. I see southwest ga and think it will be close. Many times I find its noth of Newnan. The easiest thing to do is just search by mileage

    It all depends on your place of birth. For instance, if you were born in _______ then ________:

    Outside Ga = Atlanta is everything other than Savannah

    South Ga = Waycross is home and everything else is North

    Albany = everything other than Albany is North Ga

    ITP = why are you on ODT and not Armslist :cool:

    It’s kind of like dating in Alabama - “everything is relative”.

    Actually Metro Atlanta is a lot bigger than you would think. It actually encompasses all of Fulton County, Gwinnett, Cobb, DeKalb and Clayton Counties. Fooled me until i started writing contracts for the state for services within the Metro Atlanta area. Of course I don't believe this includes Dahlonega but it's an unusual rule.
