Knowing that I would be traveling to Georgia during this event, I started searching the internet for oversized road side attractions. I found a giant roller skate in Bealeton, Virginia, a rather large chair in Thomasville, North Carolina, and a house-sized chest of drawers in Highpoint, North Carolina. Very close to the route we were traveling, in Wytheville, Virginia, over the entrance of Wytheville Office Supply, hangs a 30 feet long big pencil. There must have been something about the 50’s when everything had to be made really big, all those oversized muffler men standing over miniature golf courses comes to mind. If you get a chance, stop by and take a look at the world’s biggest pencil.
