Longtime Dawsonville United States Post Office mail carrier Joyce Bryson says a lot has changed since she first started making the rounds in April of 1982. For 35 years she commandeered Route 3, one of the longest routes at 69 miles and 46 hours a week. “I start off right outside Dawsonville,” Bryson said. “It was mostly dirt roads then, and I’ve still got a lot of that too.”
