The night ride has people who have never had their Jeep in 4 wheel drive. Some idiot rolled on a dirt road. Another gut was drunk & rear ended another really hard & took off thru the woods to get away. Cops got him because his daughter & husband was in the Jeep behind him. They told on him. Lol.
Its usually all dirt roads, hills, & easy stuff you could do in 2nd,....... If you had 1/2 a brain. Probably 200 Jeeps.
On year there was a uber sweet creek trail. Another year we went thru a nation forest area. The groups got split up. No one knew where we were or how to get back due to no cell service. We got back to Jasper @ 1 am.
The last time we went and did the night ride we got hit in rear from a dumbass in a cj drunk  as hell of course!! Then after all that he almost slammed into the front of us on a hill climb when he lost it and had no brakes! lucky for us he turned the wheel and slammed into a tree just before hitting us, he also took off but we later found him and had the cops grab him up!!!

have they given numbers for how many jeeps have registered? Seems like the last year i went it was around 1600 and traffic was awful. Its just not worth it imo. If i have to sit around in traffic i would much rather it be on a trail waiting on @Raisinhead to make it up a tiny obstacle.

Just get there early.  I pulled up before 8am last year, checked it out and was gone by noon. 

I'm not going if it's raining but looks like the weather is going to cooperate.  My wife is going with me and I know she won't want to be out there all day.  I've been invited to a private ride on some guy's property up there but not sure about that yet.

That sounds about right. It was on a large track of private property.

My wife said there are 1150 Jeeps pre registered. There will be another 1k: at least.
Traffic isn't too bad. If you want to go on the trails, go on Friday. They are empty. On Saturday, forget it. The place to be is home base. Very entertaining.
The Georgia Bounty Runner trails are 30 minutes from home base. You have to sign up for the rides in advance.

Planning to take my grandson too. Hope it's not a mud pit.  I have taken him the last two years and he enjoys it.
