    Default car rental suggestions for Georgia section hike

    Me and a Friend are planing a quick weekend hike from springer mtn to neels gap and plan on renting a car. we'll be driving from miami up to the hiker hostelnear . the only issue we are running into is that there are no rental car drop-off locations near hiker hostel. any suggestions ? we do plan on using a shuttle to/from the hostel and probably a shuttle from the rental drop-off point to the hostel but someplace a bit closer than 2 hours from the hostel

    Depending on your rental car company, you might want to try to locate a drop off and Cumming, Dahlonega, Dawsonville, Gainesville.

    You may think I'm crazy but UHaul vans can be cheaper than cars to rent.

    Call Ron Brown -706 -669-0919 I believe he is 150$ from the airport in ATL but I could be wrong. Please give him a shout as I love getting him business.
