Okay guys... I wasn't suggesting he go out and break the law. Sorry if it sounded that way. Cops don't seem to care around here so it's not that big of a deal. And as for power lines, we usually ask the owner of the property. And then we have big areas such as cross plains or tr... Something mountain. I can't remember the name. Anyways... I didn't mean he should break the law. Just stating what people do around my area.

The only coolest park we had a in GA was River Rock in Milledgeville GA.
The only near coolest park we have is Durham Town. Their Rock section is getting nice but you have to sift through the mud to find it.
The only FS ran park we have is Beasley Knob in Blairsville GA. its not much of a challenge but it sure is pretty.
As for clubs.. you ll have your selection.. 10 clubs at least around atlanta not including the FB ones..
just have go to meetings, events and pick which one you want to hang with.

What's your opinion on Beasley? I know you said it's not challenging, but the FS site says experienced riders. What's the park terrain like?

I need to hit Durhamtown. It's not but an hour from me, and I've heard good things.

I'd be interested to hear this, too. It seems like everything I've seen says Beasley is tough, but I'd be interested in another opinion.

All of these places are pretty far from me. s it worth it to drive an hour and a half just to go off roading. I've never gone so is it worth it to drive to one of these places.

That's like asking if good seafood is worth the price. It depends upon whether or not you like seafood.

That said, you'll never know unless you try.

You're right. The drive is worth it at least one time!

There are a lot of Forest Service roads in the Dawsonville area. They may not be as challenging as some areas but if you want to play in the woods for a few hours there are a lot of roads to explore.

for someone thats just likes to forest service roads.. Beasley would be a great trip.. The views on a clear day are awesome.

Exactly! Plus, if you get a few people together to go, it can be a great way to just get out for a day, even if you discover you're not a big fan of wheeling.

I've heard about these, but I've never made the trip up. Is there any place to get info on the roads? They sound like a lot of fun - nothing too intense, just a fun ride off road.

I think I need to give Beasley a try, then.

Also, I'm hoping to get out to a Georgia Crawlers meeting relatively soon. I have a few more things I need to do to the Jeep before it's ready for a ride with you guys, but GC sounds like a great club.

we don't advertise much. We have about 25 members to which a good 15 are actively offroading.
You re welcome to come by and check us out. We have a meeting this Saturday at Manuels Tavern.
Even if you hate the club, go there for Manny's ribs and the Beer! lol

Haha, sorry I missed it, but I already had a meeting planned at Lakewood with some Parrotheads!

I'm definitely interested in coming out, though. Looking at your website, it looks like you're the type of club I'd like - family friendly and accommodating to daily driven rigs. I just have a few more things to do to my TJ before I'm ready to wheel it.
