Chapter 3

Burgers and Breakfast

When we left the arcade on day one of the expedition it was time to travel from Douglasville, GA to Lithia Springs, GA where we would be at our first location that we could actually interact with.  (Yes, I ended a sentence with a preposition …I didn’t want to seem to uppity.)  It was here we would sit down and break bread together.  It was here we would actually touch items used by the actors of Stranger things.  Here our imaginations would be fired, our bellies would be filled, and we would begin to discover Steve Bennett’s insatiable desire to get the shot just right.  (It would be a few hours before I would be told “Let’s review,” but we’ll get there.)

In August of 2017, the members of Team Steve joined forces with honoray Team Steve member Shazbazzar from Techno Retro Dads to embark on a journey across north Georgia to find the magical places where Netflix’s hit television series Stranger Things was filmed.  The three men struck off in search of pictures, experiences, and fun…what they eventually found was something that nobody would have expected… This is the Geek Out Loud Stranger Things Expedition…
