Berry College is located just outside Rome, GA. With 27,000 acres, it boasts the largest contiguous campus in the world. Starting at the Old Mill we will climb 600 ft to the House of Dreams at the summit of Lavender Mountain. Here we will stop for half an hour to refresh ourselves and enjoy the views. We will then continue on the heavily forested ridge, descend to the reservoir and return to our starting point.

We will depart from the carpool by 8:00 am sharp. To drive into the campus you must show your driver's license.

Carpool Cost: Estimated cost per vehicle for this event is $48.00 using a reimbursement rate guideline of $0.400 per mile. The total amount should be divided by the number of people in the vehicle, including the driver. This is a guideline, not a rule, for drivers but the cost should not be higher unless there are extenuating circumstances.


We will meet at the Old Mill. See the campus map:

* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.

Cost Includes:

Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $48.00 (calculated at total miles (120) * $0.400, effective Sunday, November 05, 2017). This is based on the current gas, maintenance, and other costs of $0.400 per mile as stated by the IRS & This should be divided by the total number of people in the vehicle (incl driver).
For example: With 4 people in the vehicle, the expense per person on this trip would be $12.00.  Alternately your carpool driver may choose to split the maintenance cost plus the actual gas cost among all in the vehicle. Your carpool driver will confirm exactly how much money they require to cover costs. Please split the actual cost among all people in the vehicle.

Additional advice: The cost of your trip is up to your driver. Your cost should not be greater than what is listed above, unless there is extenuating circumstances. If you want to be sure about the cost of the trip, check with your driver before you get into the vehicle. If you are the driver of the vehicle, this is a guideline to what you charge and not a rule.
