THE POX and PUSS PODCAST : An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker Experience

Lake Sidney Lanier is an artificial lake that was created in the 1950s by building Buford Dam on the Chattahoochee River in northern Georgia. The 38,000-acre lake lies on top of the ruins of towns and farmland of over 700 families. Today, the lake has over 11 million visitors every year, about the same number of annual visitors as the Louvre. Lake Lanier is also one of the deadliest lakes in the USA. 500 people have drowned and many of their bodies have never been recovered. What is killing so many people in this lake? Underwater debris? Crazy currents? Could it be the ghosts of the Cherokee Nation who were driven out during the Trail of Tears? Maybe it's a curse caused by the people of Oscarville, whose once-thriving town is now at the bottom of a 200' deep lake.
