April 17, 2010 ride at Beasley Knob, Blairsville Ga.

Hey guys, I came across www.georgiatrailriders.com and saw they are having a ride on APRIL 17, 2010 at Beasley Knob in Blairsville, GA.

It's open to anybody- I joined the site cause its free and I am always wanting to do some trail riding in Georgia. I don't know if you have to join the site to view the link below or not, or if you have to join it to attend the ride.

They said it is open to all kinds of rigs at all levels of experience.

Anyhow, here is the info and the link below. If you are interested in going list your name here. I think it would be a lot of fun, and would love to have some fellow Taco owners to go with, or meet there.

My understanding is that this place is fun, and not somewhere you will have to trash your daily driver. I hear there are 95% of the rigs going are daily drivers, and they have this no man left behind deal where you won't get left if you get stuck or something breaks......nice

Cheers,
David.

Nice Vid! Yeah, thats a little too much for me taco! lol

But I am told that you don't have to hit THOSE trails. There are SO many different routes at that place- they said the veteran trail riders will help point you in the direction of the route best for you! I just wanna have some fun on some light to moderate trails- nothing to trash this taco i'm still paying for!!!
