    Overland Expo East and North Georgia Traverse Trip. *PIC HEAVY*

    Went to Overland Expo East and came back via the North Georgia Traverse.. Had a blast. Here are a few pictures from the trip. We left OEE Sunday afternoon and finally pulled back into Birmingham, AL on Wednesday afternoon. We found some amazing spots to camp and the pictures don't do the Overlooks and the forests justice. The Traverse route is almost 400 miles with 230 or so "off road" on unpaved surfaces. It's a great route to follow as the route follows allot of the ridges and peaks of the mountains across North GA/TN/NC/SC. You can download the Google Earth route from http://www.georgiaoverland.com/map.html and then import into Google Maps to get really good route directions. We started at the top side at FS646. If you are looking at the map everything in orange is unpaved rough roads and red designates paved sections.

    How bad are the unpaved sections? Comparable to 600-1 or 2?
