Mt. Tom lookout tower at Sibley State Park in Minnesota
I have returned from my Minnesota vacation. It was a vacation in that I did not work in my office, but it definitely wasn’t restorative. The drive aggravated my back, my diet suffered, and my exercise routine was put on hold. I arrived home a couple days ago and my back is still pretty sore.
I did do some hiking on my trip. I hiked about 5 grueling miles in the North Carolina mountains, a few miles in Sibley State Park in Minnesota, and several other, shorter walks.
Since I’ve been home, I’ve been looking at the tide charts, in hopes of finding a good day to visit my swamp. My spirits are low. I’m feeling isolated and hopeless. I need an adventure; preferably an adventure that doesn’t cause further injury to my spine.
The low tide, tomorrow morning, is pretty early, so I’ll have to get everything ready tonight and make sure I get up early so I don’t miss it. The weather forecast is good, although we got 2 inches (5 cm) of rain on Thursday, which would have raised the level of the creek. It may or may not have had time to go down by Sunday morning.
Anyway, I’m back. I’m stiff and sore, and I’m feeling melancholy. Otherwise, I’m good. It’s time to get this show on the road … metaphorically speaking.
This is the main clip I shot on August 16. Aside from some out-takes, this is probably going to be it, for a while.
In this clip, I go for a short slog and get stuck in the thick mud. The struggle is real and the sink is slow but relentless. I don’t get completely immersed, but I do get hopelessly stuck … hence the name.
There isn’t a lot I can say about this clip. It is sad that I have so few clips to sell, this year, but I really need to be careful until my spine is healed.
Here is a link (clips4sale): Stuck!, 2017-08-16 Now also available in my UMD store.
This is the 2nd clip I shot, yesterday. I decided to post it first, because it is short and easy to set up. The description of this clip is simply, “Doug masturbates himself to orgasm in the swamp” … more or less.
In a nutshell, I reclined in the mud, after doing the first clip, and took matters into my own hands until I came. It seemed like the thing to do, right before I cleaned up and paddled home.
The video is pretty good. You can find it on Clips4Sale, for now. I may upload it to UMD, later. Link: Masturbation in the Swamp, 2017-08-16 Now also available in my UMD store.
Low impact swamping? I am not sure if there is such a thing as swamping without physically exerting one’s self, but I did my best to take it easy. I’m finding that breaking the grip of thick mud is murder.
I took my 43 pound (19.5kg), 12 ft (3.7 m) solo, canoe because it is my lightest boat. Loading and launching the boat, and paddling 2 miles was nearly enough for me. I almost didn’t even get muddy, but I wasn’t sure when I’d get another chance.
So, I found a spot where I could easily get into the mud and I took the plunge. It wasn’t long before my mud-lust kicked in. I think I strained something… I have physical therapy tomorrow… This probably won’t end well.
I took some still photos and shot some video. You can see some of the still photos in this post. I know it’s hard to believe, but they are really me, and they were taken on August 16, 2017. I’ve been working hard to stay in shape while I’m unable to engage in my usual misadventures.
This is an edited clip from my experimental scene where I was slowly buried in the mud pit. Please see the note below the clip. There are more details in my previous blog entry.
Side Note: I’ve been posting a lot of free content, lately, since I haven’t been able to go into the swamp and record very much this year. In the past, I posted everything for free, but I quit when I got frustrated with the lack of feedback. This stuff may be free to you, but it’s not free to me. If you want me to leave this stuff up and continue posting more, please give me some “love”. Also, if you really enjoy a free clip, I suggest you download it and archive it somewhere, because I may take these down to conserve $bandwidth$, at any time.
This idea starts with a man, tied down to anchors in the bottom of a pit. His head is also tied down, so he can’t raise it and he has a short piece of pipe in his mouth so he will be able to breathe, even when the mud overtakes his face.
Which brings us to the mud. As he struggles, the mud, which is stacked higher near his feet, flows, ever-so-slowly, towards his head, engulfing his head and eventually casting him into total darkness.
If everything goes to plan, our victim will be completely engulfed in the slow moving mud, and all we will see of him is the very end of the pipe. In this proof-of-concept clip, things didn’t go perfectly. One of the anchors holding my head down broke free, and I had no anchor to hold my legs down, although they were tied at the ankles and above the knees.
The entire ordeal made me rather horny, and I have been pondering improvements to the setup ever since. I’ll definitely need to improve my anchors, so they don’t break free. Even if I try not to hide the failure, my body will naturally float to the surface. The video I shot while testing this idea didn’t turn out too bad. If anyone wants to see it, let me know, and I’ll try to make it available.
p.s. My physical therapist pretty much cancelled all of my exercises and replaced them with much easier ones. She also replaced all of my stretches with 2 simple stretches that don’t involve any twisting. Since it’s impossible for me to get in and out of the swamp without twisting, if I am going to respect my physical therapist’s expertise, I can’t be going into the swamp for at least a month; probably 2. Today’s activity was not very strenuous, since I have solid ground and the mud isn’t deep enough to force me to twist.
You probably saw the video log from this day. This clip contains what was not in the video log … the actual sinking and having a good time. It was so great to get back into the swamp, and to be able to return to my favorite mud hole on a day with such a low tide.
I did have to get out once because of a threatening storm, and I had to end the video when it started raining, but I still had a great time. The mud was just perfect, and I was really excited to be in it.
There is a 30 second teaser for this clip. You can view it on Clips4Sale or on UMD.net. I think the teaser says more in 30 seconds than I can write in an hour.
Return to the Swamp, 2017-07-06
This was not the smartest thing I’ve ever done …
I haven’t even started on the lift for my kayak trailer, so I still can’t go kayaking. It’s been raining way too much, anyway. I have been making the most of the weekend, and trying not to inflict too much stress on my spine.
I worked a bit on the new mud pit in the woods, and the other day, I stirred the 110 gallon tub of mud. In the images attached to this post, I’m just kicking back in a pool float that got filled with rain water in the recent rain, and warmed by the sun. I was surprised at how warm the water was, given we have had more rain and clouds than sun.
I should also mention that the video associated with these images will be on UMD as a “name your price” video. That means you can get it for free when you’re purchasing any other video from any UMD producer; or you can pay something for it, if you wish.
Look people, I have a very complicated camera and I’m still figuring it out, *and* I love to make archery videos. So back off! 🙂
I shot this video in 4K on an overcast day, which makes for some awesome imagery. I also set up a stereo microphone configuration so you could hear the bow release on the left and the target impact on the right.
Yes, my talents are being wasted, here. I wish I could show you the 4K video, but it’s a little too large for uploading to my web-site and you probably don’t have a 4K monitor, anyway. I don’t have one, but I’ve been looking around for a good deal on one. It really would be nice to be able to play my videos in their full resolution, although I think 1920 x 1080 (2k) looks pretty awesome too.
Alright, here is a web-sized version of my awesome archery video.
Sorry, there are no photos to go with this post. I had my consultation with the doctor, today. They did a complete checkup on me and evaluated the condition of my nerves to be sure I had no nerve damage/blockage. After X-rays and a physical exam, they concluded that surgery was not needed and that I could heal naturally, but it would take about 2 years for a full recovery. It’s mostly good news, although I am not supposed to lift a kayak for at least 6 months. I may rig something to assist me with loading my boat, but until I resolve that, there will be no more trips into the swamp for me.
I did invite someone down to accompany me into the swamp and do all the heavy lifting. We’ll see if that pans out. If it does, I may have some video of someone else, drowning in the evil swamp muck.
So, for 6 months I need to take it easy on all heavy exercise and focus on cardio that doesn’t stress my lower back. I’ll be riding my bicycle and I’ll probably get an exercise bike. Oh, and I have been remanded for physical therapy. Maybe, I can talk my physical therapist into taking me kayaking.
So, I’m somewhat relieved. I’m always happy when someone tells me my body will heal naturally. The bad news is that I’m going to have to make some serious lifestyle adjustments and the recovery time is going to be long.
I’ve got a consult scheduled for next week with a surgeon, regarding my back. In the mean time, I’m just trying to avoid further injury and keep in shape. In this video, I’m doing some pull-ups, while waiting for my laundry to dry. It’s not a great video. Just a status update. I hope you enjoy it anyway.
In retrospect, I should have worn my favorite briefs. 🙂
The still frames are taken from the 4K video. The detail still amazes me. It’s too bad the fetish-clips world isn’t ready for 4K.
I shot this video the day I blew out a disc in my back. This may be my last swamp video this summer. It was physically painful, editing this video, but I wanted to get it into my store. I do have one other video I made in May with a T-girl, and I hope to get that on-line soon.
The premise of this video is pretty simple. I put on the thong that I got from Hennie and went into the swamp. I was traveling lite, because I went out to relax and enjoy the mud. I set up 2 cameras, but I neglected to start the JVC, so this video is entirely from the GoPro. It’s still a good video. The audio and video quality are both good. I would have had more close-ups, if the JVC had been running.
I sink up to my shoulders, then I resurface and play with my cock, in and out of the thong. I lay back for a while and masturbate, and I thrash the mud for a bit. Eventually, I sit up and masturbate to orgasm. I visibly spew cum onto the dark mud. That’s not something I manage to do, often, so that is something.
I got the results from my MRI and I got a referral to an orthopedic doctor because my back is a mess. I haven’t yet received my treatment options, but I’m expecting to need surgery. It’s probably going to take a few weeks just to see the doctor, and who knows how long after that to get treated. I’m sorry, I don’t have any good news. I hope everyone is doing well.
This clip is just awesome. I wish someone had poured mud over my face, just to make it even better! I shot this with 3 cameras and I got some great angles. Every camera was set for perfect focus and exposure. That, in itself, doesn’t make a great video, but combine 3 perfect perspectives with a great, predicament bondage, and a great struggle, and you have something hot!
I can’t watch this video without masturbating. I hope someone enjoys it as much as I do. Check C4S for a free teaser/trailer; you won’t regret it!

p.s. Clean bondage videos are not appropriate for my UMD store, so this one will only be offered on Clips4Sale.
So, I love to shoot archery videos because they are fun to edit. Maybe, I’ll get tired of shooting them, someday, but I saw this top and decided I had to have it for my next archery video.
The top arrived in the mail, today, so I took a few photos to show off my new outfit. I feel compelled to mention that I am 52 years old in this photo. I know it’s not a popular thing to do, but I can’t help but brag just a little. You may not understand if you’re 20, but those of you who are over 40 know what I’m saying. 🙂
I’m not sure if you’ll ever see this outfit getting muddy, but it’s possible. I’ve figured out how to protect my clothes, so it could happen. In the mean time, I will be making another archery video. I’ll be happy to share that when it’s done.
On a citizen science note, I’m in the process of building a tide gauge that will log the rise and fall of the tides in my swamp, so I can make better predictions about when to go out for adventures. If it works reliably, I may invest in some kind of GSM interface so I can get real time data from the gauge for planning trips. The first version will just log readings to an SD card that I will retrieve for evaluation.
The tide schedule for the long weekend isn’t very promising. I’d have to go out at 06:00 Saturday morning, unless I want to hit a late low tide on Friday. I tend to avoid evening tides, because I end up cleaning up at sunset which is when the alligators are looking for food. Maybe Monday morning will work out, since Monday is a holiday. If I do get out, I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.
