Though the two squadrons of the 706th Fighter Wing operate from under Fighter Wing Virtual Air Combat's single roof, the divide between them couldn't be deeper. The blue Virtual Vipers fly their F-35A jets into never-ending battle against the red Crazy Ivans, who dive into the fray with the MiG-29 Fulcrum. These dogfights take place on the screens of realistic flight simulators, the same used by the USAF for training, replete with the dozens of gauges, buttons, and tactical cup holders that populate an actual fighter's cockpit. As visiting airmen become more familiar with such skills as landing and navigation, they might find themselves thrown into daring missions against enemy planes, vital ground targets, and even their fellow pilots.

Nestled in the wooded foothills of northern Georgia, Etowah Valley Sporting Clays helps shooters hit high-flying targets by providing expert advice and quality rental equipment. Armed with today's deal, each member in the group of two or four is equipped with a gun rental (a $20 value), 25 shells (a $7 value), and 25 clay targets (a $9 value). Before guests step onto the course, a safety talk covers the rules and regulations of the park as well as important principles for the safe handling of guns. Once on the course, guests can choose between shooting stations designed for beginners (five stations with five targets each), or more experienced trigger pullers (five stations with four targets, then one station with five targets), depending on their ability to blow apart a television displaying Duck Hunt. Shooters take aim from wooden platforms, where they issue commands of "pull" to send targets hurtling into the woods. Experienced instructors help newer shooters smite the careening clays by explaining how to hold the guns and giving tips on aiming, such as keeping one eye closed instead of both. The park provides goggles and earplugs for protection.

At the summit of Mount Yonah, hikers bask in the dying sunlight and soak up views of verdant foothills that span the horizon. Before the sun dips below the peaks, they meander back down the craggy trail toward Habersham Vineyard, where they can toast to a wholesome day of hiking. This scenic hike is one of dozens of possible routes led by Skywater Georgia Wine Hiking’s knowledgeable guides. They draw upon their knowledge of the region to showcase the best trails and wineries during daylong tours. Based on each group’s fitness level, interest, and ability to tolerate photo-bombing sasquatches, guides can plan easy-going three-hour hikes around Victoria Bryant State Park, or embark instead on a 10-hour journey up the steep foothills of Standing Indian. Regardless of the tour route, guides take time to point out local flora and fauna, and energize groups’ with a light lunch.
