Searching for mud, exploring the swamp, swamping locations you want to share, etc.

Yellow Trunks

The tides have been uncooperative, this past week, and I’ve had a lot of work to do. Today is the 2nd day I wanted to go out early to catch an early morning low tide, but the temperature was too cool. The cool nights are wonderful, so I hate to complain, but I’m not going … Continue reading »

Quicksand!

Today, I revisited the quicksand. It was a fun trip, but the quicksand wasn’t very deep. It might be a good thing that it wasn’t much deeper, because I got pretty well struck, a couple of times. That sand sets pretty hard, and it isn’t easy getting it to let go, when you can barely … Continue reading »

First 2015 Video Release!

It may not be the muddiest video I’ve ever produced, but it’s the first one for 2015 and I’m excited about it. The video opens when I disembark from my kayak, barefooted, wearing a black t-shirt and blue, nylon shorts. I drag my boat up and proceed to explore a muddy channel that looks promising. … Continue reading »

Mostly Muddy

The weather was pretty good today. It was 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20C) and sunny. There was a strong gusty wind that gave me a bit of a chill. The low tide was amazing. It was low from the time I set out on the water until after I returned to my car. That was about … Continue reading »

Exploring

The weather forecast today was for rain and thunderstorms, but it was looking pretty safe around 10:00 this morning, and low tide was around 11:00. I figured I wouldn’t get time to play, but I wanted to have a look around and take a short stroll through the bog, if nothing else. The weather was … Continue reading »

Warmer Weather has Arrived

The weather has warmed significantly in the past 10 days. I ventured out, yesterday morning, to clear some log jams in the creek, and slog around a bit in boots and tight jeans. I wasn’t ready to dive into the bottomless mud and swim in the cool water to clean up, just yet. It wasn’t … Continue reading »

Return to the Newport River

The clock was ticking, and there was still a lot to do before I could leave the house. Low tide was at 3:30, and it was already 3:00. I wanted to go back to the Newport River to play in some of that awesome river mud. I also had to stop at the bike shop, … Continue reading »

Late Start

I got off to a late start, today, but it was a very nice day and I figured there was no harm in getting out, even if I missed the low tide. When I arrived, I found the tide wasn’t as low as I had hoped, but I had about an hour before it would … Continue reading »

Exploring the Newport River

2014-05-20 Exploring the Newport River Today, I went to the Newport River to explore the muddy shores that I have ogled on past trips with other people. The Newport River has to be the muddiest river I’ve ever paddled. Unfortunately, most of the mud is in plain site of the main river, but there were … Continue reading »

Video Blog Entry

It took me some time to edit this, because I underestimated just how bad the audio pickup would be from my GoPro. I had to add sub-titles so you could understand what I was saying. I couldn’t just throw away the clip, because those wet jeans fit me so well. (there is a download link … Continue reading »

First Clip from the New Spot

This is the first of 2 sinks, plus the video I shot while I was slogging around after the sink. The sink goes pretty fast. I fall in and disappear in under 2 minutes. I know, that’s too fast, but I didn’t time it, while I was doing it. Sometimes drowning in quickmud doesn’t go … Continue reading »

Exploring, Day 2

On Sunday, April 27, I ventured out to Hunter’s Creek, alone. I went out several hours before low tide, so I put in several miles upstream from the mud spot and paddled further upstream, just beyond a beaver dam. The scenery above the beaver dam was spectacular, and the wildlife was abundant. I got out … Continue reading »

Exploring

I was out paddling on Hunters Creek, yesterday, with a group of paddlers, when I stumbled upon the scene pictured here. The mud probably isn’t very deep, and it may be full of timber, but it looks like a treacherous swamp scene. I’m pretty sure I will have to check it out, soon. I’m entertaining … Continue reading »
