I bought a Jeep had the craving to get it off road, google gave me several options. Most of the options were old clubs that were not active anymore.
  First ride was CFR 17 from meeting some of you at the gate during check in till the time I left I felt welcome. The ride definitely gave me the bug to start upgrading.

Saw it on a bathroom wall.  It said "for a good time call"

Jay answered didn't he?

2013  I thnk. Googled, found GATR.  What caught my attention was "any 4x4 vehicle, not just Jeeps" I was new to wheelin and wanted a place that me and my truck would be welcome.  Found it!
 

This was true for me as well. After moving to north GA, Google lead to a lot of clubs in the area that all had Jeep in the title or appeared to be Jeep only.  This was a change for me, in North Carolina rides usually consisted of about half jeeps. In GA it seems everything is 98% Jeep.

My first official GATR ride was March 2013 at AOP pre-opening ride.
So...you're saying Georgians are smarter than North Carolinians.

Josh (JvC) found ya, he was looking for a wheeling group that had the same thoughts and interest about wheeling as he does. He found you and then he told me about ya.

Needed help putting on a lift nearly 10 years ago. Tedder suggested I come here from Jeepforum. Rowingfish (Kyle) & I think Richard came out to help. Used to go on a few rides a year, years ago, but unfortunately for now I'm stuck reading ya'll adventures. Still have the Jeep, with a little more HP  //;D//, just no free time between work & family stuff!

I actually don't remember.  I bought an '09 Rubicon in mid '09 and went on a few rides.  Forrest Service Rd., Chocco, and one other place.  Had a great time.  Sold the 09 and went 2 years without a Jeep before I bought my '14 JKR.  Now I can't imagine not owning a Jeep (that will eventually become a trailer whore).

I heard about GATR through a google search. I'm a member of another club in Virginia called Northern Virginia Jeepers Association (NOVA Jeepers). I've done some wrenching parties and trail rides with them and was able to learn a lot (I'm still learning too). There's a lot of good guys in that group. So I wanted my son to be able to experience being part of a group of like minded off road enthusiasts.
Anyway, my first off road adventure was to Durhamtown. My sons and I went but I didn't really know what to do, so we were limited on what we did. Since my son just got his jeep I wanted to help him find a group that he could get involved in (trail rides, wrenching parties, etc...). So far I've been pretty impressed with the forum and the people here. I'm looking forward to going on a trail ride with you guys in the near future.

I stumbled across GATR when I did a Google search for off-road trails near Atlanta. I lurked for a little while and checked out similar groups. GATR stood out to me as the best to join. A couple of reasons for that would be that its clearly loaded with very experienced people, and appears very open to accepting new people.

I spent some years doing grassroots rallycross, most of which I did in SoCal. I made a lot of good friends doing that and enjoyed helping out newcomers as well. Now I'm ready to experience some wheelin' and this looks like a great place to start.
