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

Ode to Tumbleweed

On a cold but sunny day in November of Ninety-one,
Buffie, Wendy, Neal and Jay went out for a day of four wheeling fun.

The car was a Suzuki that Consumer Report wanted to ban,
for the car has a tendency to tip over when driven on land.

Jay Bird the stalwart driver had always scoffed at these reports,
"It was a bad driver who didn't know what to do" was always his retort.

On this fateful Sunday over logging roads that were getting thin,
Luck ran out on jay and his three brave friends.

The group came to a rocky embankment with a tree blocking the road on the right,
Jay knew to get through this mess the route would be very tight.

He gunned the cars engine while in four-wheel drive,
and at five miles an hour he headed bravely for the divide.

At first it looked like he would make it until he hit the rock,
That shook the car so violently he had to break the car to a stop.

It was at this seemingly long moment that the car began to slide,
When the dust cleared, Jay was hanging in the air and the car was on it's side.

Jay had accomplished what Consumer Reports had feared,
his car had tipped over and was knocked out of gear.

Luckily, everything was okay with no one getting hurt,
except maybe Jay Bird's pride of driving that was lower than dirt.

Seven strong backs it took to turn the car over,
the car all scraped and dented looked okay even it's motor.

"Blackmail" pictures were taken for all the world to see,
What jay had accomplished and why he is called "Tumbleweed".
