Patrick travels a lot with his immediate family as well as with his Peach State Overland family. Having gone on many trips and having his truck filled to the brim with stuff, he thought that now might be a good time to transition to a trailer.

Base Camp: Our Favorite Winter Drinks – Feb 2017

peachstateAround the Fire0 Comments

The trucks are parked. Base camp is set up. If we’re lucky, we’re in an area where fires are allowed and there’s a nice one roaring. It’s time to settle into our favorite camp chair with a drink, tell some tall tales, and dwell on the day’s adventures. It’s quite possibly the best part of our trips, the time we get to spend together as friends, around the fire, away from the hustle and bustle of this face-paced, dog-eat-dog world, social media, politics, and noise that has become part of everyday life in America.

JOURNEY TO MOAB: BRYCE CANYON PRODUCTION CAMERA SLIDER

We’ve been on the road for a little over 3 hours today as we’ve made our way up 24 from Capitol Reef National Park with a quick stop at Goblin Valley—our final destination for the day is a campsite near Rainbow Terrace Trail just north of Canyonlands. I haven’t truly showered in 3 days, unless you call wet wipes a viable alternative—I do not. All I can hear is the gravel grinding beneath my all-terrain’s and the squeaks of my dirt packed bushings as I weave in and out of the leading vehicle’s dust trails. Ahead of me is Steven, Patrick, and Dan in their 4runner’s. I’ve turned down my CB as the chatter is just a little too much … Read More

Smokey Mountain Disaster Relief Run

Steven SorensenNews0 Comments

As many of you know the the Smoky Mountain region around the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge area has recently sustained substantial damage from wildfires. To help out this area that is so near and dear to many of us, we are gathering donations from now through Thursday Dec 8th to bring up there. We will be bringing these up to a donation drop in Gatlinburg on Friday Dec. 9th as another wave of support for the region. By next weekend, many of the donation needs will be used to support the folks who have lost everything with their homes and are currently living in the local shelters, per our conversations with TEMA.

Vogel State Park – Chattahoochee National Forest

Freeman BarberFavorite Destination0 Comments

Located about 60 miles north of Atlanta near the small town of Helen lies the gateway to mountains and my favorite destination. With the amazing winding roads and breath taking mountain views all around, Vogel State Park is my favorite destination when I’m out on my ADV bike. The park is made up of 233 Acres including Lake Trahlyta at the entrance. An interesting fact, Vogel was one of the first 2 parks created in GA when the state’s park system was founded in 1931. The campgrounds include RV sites, tent sites, primitive camping sites, and cabin options, most of which include electricity and running water.  When I camp on the ADV bike, I carry as much water as I … Read More

Pacaure Rain Forest in Costa Rica

Patrick MetzgerFavorite Destination1 Comment

Adventure is about doing things you would not normally do and pushing the boundaries of your comfort for that rush of excitement that comes along with the unknown. My wife and I got married 8 years ago and we decided to take a trip to Costa Rica for our honeymoon. While by definition not an Overlanding trip, we spent 10 days seeking adventure in a country very different from the United State. When greeted with the countries saying “Pura Vida” (the pure life) you begin to understand that the principle of Overlanding is the lifestyle lived in this Central American country. Being a very modest country, tourism and exports are the primary source of revenue. You can also find a … Read More

The Cohutta Wilderness

Kevin KeeganFavorite Destination2 Comments

We’ve done a lot of traveling as a group in Peach State Overland, with a majority of it in the southeast and some of it beyond. But I want to take it back to our home state, the peach state—Georgia. We have quite a bit of wild land in the northern region of our state, one of these areas is the Cohutta Wilderness. The Cohutta contains 37,000 acres of land rich with trees, rivers, lakes, and wildlife that play host to a variety of outdoor activities. I first visited the Cohutta on a trip I had planned that traversed the state of Georgia using as little paved roads as possible. We used routes that were laid out by Dave at … Read More
