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.

By now you should already have a Member Page in the system.  In this part, we are going to tweak out the page a little to make it more fun... pictures.

Let's start with pictures...

In order to put pictures in, at this time we are only allowing pictures that are hosted off-site. The reason for this has nothing to do with bandwidth, but rather it is easier to get the picture from another location on the web. If you haven't already joined Flickr, now would be a good time... I'll wait.

After joining Flickr, join the GBR group and share some of your 4wheeling pictures with the group. *4wheeling pictures only for the group*

The instructions will be based on grabbing pictures from your own Flickr account, but a similar procedure will work for PhotoBucket or most of the other similar sites. I am using Flickr because there are some integration tools that we can use that don't work with the other sites.

In order to get started, I recommend that you have Flickr (or whatever) open in one tab or window and the story to edit in another tab or window. You will likely need to move back and forth between them. In order to open up your Member Page for editing,go to the page or the list of pages and click on the edit icon... edit

At this point you should recognize where you are...

  • Put the blinking cursor approximately where you'd like the picture to be. Don't worry, you can move it...
  • Click on the photo icon... photo
  • Go to the Flickr window and right click on the image. There is a choice for Copy Image Location. Left click that.
  • Going back to the Insert/edit Image window that opened up,and paste that location into the box that says Image URL. You should notice that the image shows up almost immediately.
  • Type in an Image Description and Title. These help the search engines figure out what is in the picture.
  • Now click on the tab in that window that says Appearance. There are a couple of things we are going to do here.
    • Alignment: I recommend either Left or Right. These will wrap the text around them and look the cleanest. Vary images to be on both sides of the page, or stack them up.
    • Dimensions: Please keep the max dimension under 400px. The easy thing to do here is substitute 400 for whichever number is larger and then hit the "Tab key" on your computer. It should automatically adjust the other field for the right size.
    • Vertical and Horizontal Space: I recommend at least 3px. Don't go nuts. This just gives your picture a little bit of space.
    • Border: I generally don't use them... but whatever.
    • Click Insert... you are done with that.
  • If you want to move the picture around, click once on it and then click and hold it, move it and let off the click to place it.
  • If you want to alter the size, click on the image and then click on the photo icon again. Feel free to play.
You now have pictures on your page...
