I bought my Jeep for the sole purpose of it being a "play-around" vehicle, but I can't really find anywhere to play around with it. It's great to go topless and doorless and just cruise, but I want something more engaging. You won't believe how excited I got when there was a tree down in one of the more traveled trails. I got to pull out the tow strap, drop down into 4 low, engage the lockers and pull that (rather large tree) out of the road.
Just like me... sad. I've ridden the dirt roads of Fort Stewart and beside the overflow waterways in my area of the county. (There was one 10-foot sloping drop between waterways I had to cross that had a few rocks at the bottom... sigh) I've let the top back and taken the doors off (man those things are heavy!), but I'm going to wait to take them off again until I can get some soft doors that I can remove and take with me. That's another $1000. Then I want a new bumper and winch. Another $1000. The wife is not happy with the "necessary" upgrades.

Got any suggestions for what kind of courses/obstacles you'd like to see put together? What places have you been that you've particularly enjoyed and why? I'm probably going to go to North Georgia during December and try to ride some mountain trails. I was thinking of going to Durhamtown this week, but it's been raining constantly here in Hinesville. I'm not interested in running my 4-month old Rubi through many mud pits.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Let me ask for your perspective on something.

Since I bought my Jeep I've been frustrated not having any place to go off-road that has real obstacles to crawl. Something beyond dirt roads (plenty of those on Fort Stewart) and mud. I've looked as far as Orlando, Florida to North Georgia, and have found nothing between but HardRock Park in Ocala, FL and Durhamtown in Georgia. Both take 3.5 hours to get to and are too far for a day-trip.

If I were to purchase land and build a quality off-road site for Jeeps and 4-Wheelers, motocross bikes, etc., here, somewhere in the southern part of Georgia, would you pay money to ride that course regularly, if you considered it to be of sufficient quality, challenge, and fun?

Thanks for taking time to consider this. I've been thinking about making this investment for months, but haven't done any research to find out how much interest there may be in our area for a place to ride that is open to the public.

I would be interested.

Stryker_242 Will do, firefighteremt742!

Any place around our area to ride some trails with hills/obstacles, etc?

May have already - I wave to all Jeeps.

We usually go down to RH nearly every weekend to check on our house (currently building). There are a lot of Jeeps in the area. We stopped by the LCMR event a couple weeks ago, but only stayed a few minutes.

Here's another new Jeep entry...

I just got mine back in July. I really enjoy driving it, but haven't been able to take it off-road much, since I live in Hinesville, GA (near Savannah) and their's no place to ride off-road down here!

Anyone have any suggestions for off-roading in South Georgia / North Florida?

It's 3.5 hours north from here to Durhamtown, GA and 3.5 hours south to Hardrock Park, Ocala, FL!

I need some place to ride with some obstacles! Looking for more than just mud.
