ILLEGAL WHEELING STOPS HERE!
« on: December 19, 2013, 11:50:33 AM »
This has been discussed numerous time and our stance should be clear. If it is not, then understand this.

When you join GATR, you become a part of the best club in GA. We do not condone or practice wheeling on questionable or illegal lands whatsoever. You will only find legit parks or open forest service roads on our ride schedule. You not only represent the club when you are on a club ride. You also represent the club when you are riding with your friends or other groups. There has been some claims that some of our members have been in areas of questionable legitness. This will not be tolerated. If you have been, then you need to stop immediately. If we hear of any of our members riding where they should not be and practicing pour stewardship of this sport, your account will be banned. You will forfeit any dues paid.

We want to make sure our children's children will be able to experience this sport and enjoy it like we do. The only way to do this is to Tread Lightly and be responsible. We are a part of something greater and can help change the way others view this activity.

The club needs to list the places it feels is in question with proper evidence to support the decision. A spot can not be illegal because you heard its not. For example, xxxxx xxxxxx is an unmaintained public road and is completly legal.

It is real, real simple

If you don't own the property or have permission to be on the property from the property owner....you are trespassing.

We all know people go to that road and ride all the adjacent property. If its on a map as a real road or forrest service road your fine. When you drive off of that road and on to someones property its not ok. If it is a park its fine. We don't need to post evidence on why you shouldn't be there. Just show us written permission from the land owner saying you are able to ride there. If its questionable or areas around it are questionable, why be associated with it. There are so many nice private parks that we need to support monetarily and public OHVs that are still open. Riding these other areas are only condemning the ones that need to be supported.

You know I'm sick and freaking tired of hearing xxxxx xxxxxx....
If that's all you want to do MOVE ON. Please don't waste our time!

I understand when someone first gets a 4 wheel drive they don't
know where or what to do.....I've been there and would find a power line
or the tail end of a subdivision that was being built. Just to put in 4 wheel drive!!

I even found Tellico and Beasley Knob on my own, went and rode them by my self
or with a couple other Jeeps. IT WASN'T UNTIL I JOINED GATR that I found out
what this sport is all about. GATR opens up a world I never knew was there.
Get out and go to the parks made for this sport, learn, give back, and don't give
them any more reasons to close down more areas than what THEY ALREADY HAVE!

I hope that the intended lecture was not to me. I don't even go there currently and has been years since I have.
