    Anyone in the area, or not should try to make this event if u like the mud. This guy has one every year, I think a pig roast and the whole works. Its Right close to Ravenna if anyone knows where that is, if not, PM me and i will give u directions. I guess there was over a hundred trucks last year. Oh, by the way its on Saturday.

    Man, you gotta give a little more advance notice than that.

    I already have a bachelor party to go to Saturday.

    Looks like, from the pictures, that it is geting bigger every year. I think I will try to make it next year. My truck will be done by then. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    From the pictures, either the bog was not that bad, since there were close to stock size trucks going in. But yet, there were tractor tires also?

    What gives?

    Cool pictures.

    It started out prety nasty, but after some trucks went thru, it pushed a lot of the mud to the far end, where it stopped a lot of people trying to climb out at the pit. They did regroom it every once in a while, but it still was pretty tough. They had 2 lines u could take, the one u see most ppl going thru is the easier line, the far right was the B%#$H. 2 ppl tried and got stopped at a huge hole. u see it where that yellow tracker thing is in the pics. A bunch of crap broke out at the end which made things kinda crappy, but all in all it was a good time, try and make it next year.
