    sure most of the guys up here use that chewing tobbaco. they sometimes carry there own cups. but if you let them ride with you you better have a cup or an old coke can so they can spit it that or they might get it on you car seat. if you forget go to mcdonalds and ask for a childs cup and some napkins they don't charge for those things. well some times they do but tell them what you need it for and they won't charge you.

Ellijay Off The Beaten Path

  • Fall Branch Falls visit

    Nearby to Ellijay are plenty of falls and lakes to visit, and this trip we made it to Fall Branch Falls after about 30 minute drive through the backroads of the mountains. The parking area is off Stanley Creek Road close to Aska Road. The hike took about 15 minutes up to the falls with spots at the top and bottom for viewing....Hope to come back...
