Hi, I found out about this site on JeepForum.com through a promotional giveaway and was just wondering how many people in my area have Jeeps and where do you like to take them off-road?
I have a Liberty, which doesn't count, because I don't take it off-road, but my hubby has a 2000 Jeep Wrangler (Sahara). We like to go up to Jones Creek, but would like to find some closer areas, if there are any. We live in Woodstock, GA on the Roswell/East Cobb line.
So, even if you don't live close to us, where do you like to go off-road?!
Do you have a "street-only" Liberty--or do you just not drive off-road?
I have a diesel Liberty that is trail-rated. It certainly is not as off-road capable as most of the Wranglers and I don't go rock-crawling with it, but I do drive it in moderately rough terrain.
It's trail rated! I do take it off-road a little, just to get to campsites, etc., but it's not 4 wheel drive. We always take the Wrangler with us, too, when we go somewhere where we want to go off-road.
I could probably take my Liberty more places than I do, but it's the "family" vehicle, so I'm more careful with it than I probably have to be.
I've had tons of 4x4s over the years. Before I left Dalton I had an old 4x4 Nissan truck. Had a big ole Dodge Power Wagon when I was in Nashville. I actually just got into Jeeps in the last 5-6 years. Had a Wrangler Sahara, three Wagoneers, and a couple of old Gladiator pickups. I got a Hummer recently but haven't taken it off-road yet.
When I was living in GA we used to just go play on the power lines a lot. Trips up to Tellico were always fun too. Anywhere there was mud always made for a good day. One of my favorite ways to spend a day was just riding up into the national forest starting at Redwine's Cover just south of Dalton. Nothing too extreme. Lots of river crossings and good scenery.
