Sumter to Atlanta

Pros: I liked the fact that it was on time and not to long. Cons: That's like asking asking a clitorical question because as time go along things always improve so to ask what could be improved all you have to do is just look around for yourself. Tips: Basically if you're traveling alone always be conscious of people places and things around you at all times and that's for being alone or in the group.
