About the Event

Reverse Traverse VU2

October Thurs 10th-Monday 14th

Venture Unknown is shaking things up with an all-new twist on our beloved Georgia Traverse — this time, we're doing it in reverse! But don't worry, we're still moving forward, just tackling the familiar rugged beauty from a whole new angle. Why? Simply because we can, and because traversing the same paths in a different direction can transform the familiar into something entirely new.

Experience the Georgia Traverse like never before. Each turn, creek crossing, and climb promises a fresh perspective, making it feel like an entirely new journey. And the best part? You'll be seeing it all draped in the spectacular tapestry of fall colors. Imagine the rolling mountains and dense forests, now alive with vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows.

Whether you're in a stock 4x4, handling a full-size beast, or bringing along a trailer, this route is ready for you. The Reverse Traverse is all about experiencing the wild in all its autumnal glory. It's the perfect time for both newcomers and seasoned travelers to venture through the mountains and create new memories.

So come along with Venture Unknown as we flip the script on adventure. Let's drive the Georgia Traverse backward, forward, and every which way in between, surrounded by the most breathtaking views the Southeast has to offer!

Camping type

All camps for this adventure will be dispersed style camping. Meaning there are no bathrooms, running water, or electricity available at camps. We can educate newbies on how to camp in this manner. Do not be afraid to ask questions leading up to this adventure or join us for a hands-on workshop prior to the ride. This is a REAL adventure and can be very rewarding when prepared properly.

What to bring?

Everything to be self-sustained for multiple days in the wild. This should include proper clothing for the season, footwear (water resistant recommended), food, trail snacks, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, rain gear, and most important the right attitude. If you forgot something we will give you the shirt off our back but please plan ahead. Self reliance is key. Don't be shy, ask questions. We love to help people enjoy this hobby.


Before the trip

We will be available for any questions you may have. We can be reached by phone, messenger, or email.  Sean will also create a chat for all that are planning to come appx a week before the event.

During the trip

We use GMRS radios during our rides. We highly recommend this type of communications. If you need recommendations on what to buy we will be glad to help. If you aren't able to secure a radio for the ride, we will provide a loaner. We will use GMRS CH17 (462.600)

What's included?

You can expect Sean to use his many years running guided trips to help you adapt to being off-road in remote spots of the wilderness and ensure he has your best interest always at the forefront. We never leave a man behind. So if a mechanical failure happens there will be plans to help recover your rig. You can expect a welcoming community of folks that always welcome you to the fire and who knows maybe Sean will share his famous Mango Margaritas with you. You can expect a VU sticker that captures this adventure so you can look back and remember the fun! Michelle's delicious homemade banana bread will be served on the final morning at our gratitude circle (this is worth the cost) just ask anyone. Educational opportunities during this ride will include driving techniques, gear recommendations, communication and navigation lessons. We also will share a GPX file of our route that includes camps in the area. You also will have access to a trip photo album.
