Mud4Blood 2014 - April 12th

Each year the GBR4wd Club hosts one of the biggest blood drives on Life South's calendar... Mud4Blood.  We bring together people from all over the Atlanta and North Georgia area to have fun, check out each others vehicles, participate in a giant raffles AND donate blood to help those in need in our area. 

This year's event will be on April 12th at Adventure Outdoors, 2500 S. Cobb Drive, Smyrna, GA 30080...  This is a new venue for us and we are looking to amp it up once again.  Last we we collected over 140 units of blood in just a few hours.  Because of the way the blood can be utilized, this allowed as many as 140 lives to be saved through the generous donations of our participants. 

Not only that, but we had vehicles rolling through our parking lot ranging from highly modified Jeep Wranglers and Monster Fords to a seriously clean and VERY stock 69 Charger 440 6 Pack.  That's right... you don't need a 4wd to participate, and in fact, if you drag out the street rod, hot rod, resto or bike you will find a VERY excited base of folks to check out your machine.

Join the GBR

There are a few hoops to jump through. But only a few... In order to join the GBR, you need to:

  • Attend two meetings
  • Attend two trail rides (you need to come to a meeting prior to trail riding).

That's it? Well.. kind of. There are also some rules that you need to follow when it comes to trail riding:

  • Your rig needs to be safe... and we have a safety/equipment list for trail riding.
  • You need to be safe... we don't allow drinking on the trails, among other things.
  • We maintain a family friendly environment.
  • We follow the principles of TreadLightly.

Of course there are a few more specific rules, but that is enough to give you a really good idea of what we are about. If we sound like the kind of group you are interested in joining, contact us. We'd love to hear from you. Shoot an email to our Membership Director: membership[at]gbr4wd[dot]com

Join a Club

We are a family-oriented club, promoting responsible off-road recreation and we adhere to the tenets of Tread Lightly. We also belong to UFWDA (United Four Wheel Drive Association) and SFWDA (Southern Four Wheel Drive Association). By joining with other off-road enthusiasts, we can protect our access rights to public land as well as recreational opportunities on private lands. We invite other like minded enthusiasts to join us, or other 4wd clubs in order to not only enjoy new friendships, but to protect our hobby. We recommend joining a club that is a member of SFWDA and/or UFWDA.

Also check out the Georgia Bounty Runners (GBR) on Facebook, click here to become a fan.

Here is the procedure to set up your own member page. It isn't that tough, and if you can post on the forum, you can put up a page here. This should be pretty accurate, but as we make changes to the site, details might change.

If you bump into a problem, shoot LaneBailey an IM on Yahoo and we'll try to get you through it.  Also send a message to Lane, Tony or Ric if you see a discrepancy.  We are fixing them as fast as we find them.  

  • To begin with you will need to be a registered user on the site. To do that, on the front page you can Create an account under where it says USER LOGIN.
  • After you set up an account, you will get an activation email at the address you entered. Please follow the link in the email in order to verify your account. Hopefully JeepOnRock will see you in the system and will set you up as an Author, but that could take a little while... maybe a day.
  • After you are set up as an Author, when you go to Members > GBR Member Pages, you will see at the bottom of the list a link that says New Article New. Click it...
  • You are now on the Submit an Article page. This is an editor that functions much like MS Word or any other word processor... there are some differences, though. But, the important first step is getting the story written... We'll cover pictures in Part III.
  • DON'T write the story in Word or another word processing application, as this will insert "junk code" in the text that will require a lot of work to remove.  If you feel that you need to write it elsewhere, you can do it in a text editor, and then look at the HTML to make sure there isn't any superfluous code.  Alternately, you can Copy/Paste Special, and then just allow the text to be pasted.  It is easier to just write in the on-site editor.
  • So, now you have written a story for your Member Profile. It is time to make it show up...
    • Section: Members
    • Category: GBR Member Pages
    • Show on Front Page: No
    • Author Alias: your name or screen name
    • Access Level: Public
    • You can leave everything else alone...
  • Hit Save.
  • Keep in mind that there IS a spellchecker, and also that you can come back and edit or change the page any time you'd like.

So, if you have followed along, you have a Member Page on the site.
