    My mud pits are no longer in existence.

    But I still managed to get stuck.

    My grandparents filled in a swimming pool. Took a year before it was really solid. So maybe they are not done for just yet. :laugh:

    Several reasons:
    The opportunity to have them filled in without any personal cost; while also aiding in the disposal of sediment for a local "Salmon Recovery Project".

    I wanted to start returning my field to how it used to look when I was a kid; Mud Races were only a temporary "phase" up there. 5 years was enough; holding the Mud Races themselves were alot of hassle and barely broke even financially if it all.

    I felt if they were there too long and kept getting deeper and more people heard about them, I'd have people soon start bothering me about "environmental and/or water issues".

    If I don't have a mud pit to play in or get stuck in any time I want, I might actually get more work done, and blow up less motors.

    I'm glad I got to run through those pits once before you filled them in. I think they'll be missed. But hey I know you, it'll only be a matter of time before you find a place up there to have another mud pit or such :wink1:
