relocating to north georgia in about a week



hello georgians~

i currently live in florida but i'm relocating in the next week and a half to a spot in Ga known as jefferson. i know they have a local jeep night at the beef o'brady's out there on the first thursday of every month, but sadly my work prohibits me from attending. (they meet at night, and i work at night)

i got to go to the event once and everyone was really welcoming (the ones that weren't eating by the time i got there anyway) and they even had a firepit since it was awfully cold that night.

anyway, i figured this would be a good time to put a feeler out there for anybody who can recommend an offroad club, or knows any trails or possibly may even just wanna go wheeling sometime. to be fair, i am a bit of a novice, but willing to learn. just don't wanna destroy my jeep

any friendly advice is appreciated (especially if there's any decent jeep-related businesses in the area as well) since i am really starting from scratch here.


as an aside, i spent the winter in jefferson and learned that if you need a mechanic shop that doesn't suck for something you can't do yourself. stop and ride is fair, cost effective, and thorough. i'll spare you the story of why i needed their services.

guess everyone's wheeling

jeep-sleep: N, V,
1: (verb) to fall asleep in one's jeep, generally in the reclined position or perhaps even on top of the roof. Ex: :I think i may pull over and jeep-sleep for a bit"
2: (noun) the sleep one gets while in a jeep. Ex: "Dude, that wasn't a nap.. it was a jeep sleep."

I am not to far from where you will live ( winder) but so far the closest place I know to ride is at Durhamtown off road park or at Beasley knob. I am not sure of any local forums anymore for trail rides besides north georgia jeepers but due to some issues that happened two weeks ago it has turned into a very slow forum.

There are a ton of service roads in north GA you can ride at but there are discussions about them being closed down. All of the places to ride are going away.

drama in the offroading club?

sounds like a bad start.

i have heard rumor of this beasly knob and it's particularly rough side path. sounds intriguing, though given how stock my jeep is i dunno if it'll be navigable for me. at least worth a shot

where's the best local place to get parts/work done?

Welcome to GA ! I'm right outside Jefferson myself and have heard about jeep night at Beefo Brady's but never been there. The closest place to ride is Durahmtown and it's a pretty cool place that has a little bit of everything for everybody...mud,hills,trails,rocks

being in florida, i find myself generally unamused by mud. making it back in one piece sounds like a good thing.

best fifteen word summary you could have thrown at me.

I've done some rides with GATR ( Georgia Trail Riders) and they have a website but most are fairly hardcore wheelers.

I got that Jeep thing now it hurts when I pee.

well guys, i have been here for two whole days now. woot! the terrain is MUCH more interesting than florida's flat sand and mud.

but i have noticed something.....

why do GA jeepers not wave? i have seen a lot of jeeps here..... but i think i only got one wave (from a guy in another TJ)

is it local custom not to?

I've noticed it depends on the area. If your in a more " city " type area like Buford, Hamelton mill they never wave back. If your out in a more country area most of the time they wave. The JKs never wave unless they are modded.

I was out heading into winder and then going to Bogart two days ago and I must have had 10 waves by other Jeeps!
