Thanks to Dan Sunderland he mentioned that something has changed at the old Wanderlodge factory. Dan was correct it is now up for lease Tatsa no longer plans to build there. They reported last fall plans to staff this past January and build/distribute their 24 passenger shuttle bus.
How quickly things change.
The Birds Nest is being DESTROYED by the GEORGIA Department of Transportation.
They are using it for a storage site and job site office as they are working on Hwy 341 running next to the Nest

Ed, Thanks for the update. Just last night I was reading through this thread and catching up on some history. We have been through Fort Valley three times in the last three years.Never did locate the Birds Nest, but always hoped that someone would restore it for a RV stopover. Another sad day in Wanderlodge history.

Ed
It formally was difficult to see from the highway very well covered with bushes allowed to grow dense for screening.It now is WIDE open all the shrubs along the road have been trashed. Trucks/heavy equipment /trailers/tools/materials, being shoved around inside the NEST damage abounds.

It's been a long, long time since we visited this thread. During our "Return to the Valley Rally last week, the mayor of Fort Valley arranged for several members of the club to visit the factory. It was a little sad for those of us who stayed there "back in the day", but for the newcomers it was a very memorable experience. I made a short video of the tour that we took through the factory, the old parts store and finally the "birds nest". Not much is going on with the new owner, but we were told that they hope to begin manufacturing city fleet buses at some point in the future.
