Exploring

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

Video: Blue PVC Shorts & Bare Feet

I threw together the best bits of the video I shot on February 5. I just realized I still haven’t done anything with my wetsuit video. I still want to turn that into a montage with some other unpublished video, so it is more interesting. Anyway, here is a free video for your enjoyment …

A Mild Winter

We are having a very mild winter, here. I ventured out yesterday mostly just to check on some of my sinking holes and poke around a bit. The weather was warm, but the water is cold … although it’s not as cold as it normally would be. I shot a little bit of video while … Continue reading »

Winter Wetsuit Adventure

I ventured out last Friday (01/03/2020) because it was unseasonably warm and the low tide was in the later part of the morning. I put on my Body Glove (wetsuit) so I could immerse myself in cold mud without getting hypothermia. When I arrived at the creek it was obvious that the tide wasn’t going … Continue reading »

Expedition Video

The video from yesterday’s expedition is now on PornHub. It is free to stream. See my previous post for details and still images. p.s. This video doesn’t qualify as porn, by any stretch, but my YouTube account was deleted for posting similar videos in the past. This is why I don’t support activists who want … Continue reading »

Expedition in Jean Cut-offs

The legs on my old jeans were falling apart, so I cut them off and did some tailoring to make some perfect fitting cut-offs. I love them and I just had to wear them on an expedition. I went out at low tide, this morning, but I knew I was being optimistic. The low tide … Continue reading »

A Wild Day in the Swamp

I know you are going to think I’m exaggerating when I say I had to paddle against the current both ways, but when I go mudding on the White Oak River, I always paddle against the current both ways. I venture out there when the tide is going out, and I return when the tide … Continue reading »

Free video: The Shortcut

This is the video version of my previous blog entry. The audio on the GoPro video is very poor, so I did a voice over. This video only covers the long slog through the “shortcut” which turned out to be a costly diversion that gained me nothing. I hope you enjoy the video.

What Doesn’t Kill You …

… makes you stronger. Or so the saying goes. I went exploring, today. I accidentally left my phone home, so I had no GPS or even a compass. My plan was to let the phone map my trip so I could review it, later. It would also have been nice to have a satellite image … Continue reading »

The Pre-Sink Video

For those of you who prefer moving pictures, here is the edited GoPro video from yesterday’s misadventure in the swamp. This is just the pre-sink stuff, unless you classify the test-sink as a sink, then I don’t know what you’d call this. Anyway, I apologize for the low quality. Moving grass doesn’t encode well because … Continue reading »

New Video: Trapped!

(See my previous post for more about this clip.) I went exploring a location I haven’t explored in 20 years. In my bare-feet and skin-tight jeans, I pull my canoe into the muddy inlet. After discovering that it is really difficult to navigate the deep mud, I climb onto a slippery log and walk carefully … Continue reading »

Returning to the Beginning

Yesterday, I set out on an adventure with the goal of locating a spot I had last visited when I was still shooting on a VHS analog video camera (over 20 years ago). In my past exploration, I hadn’t been able to find a location without a lot of timber that made sinking nearly impossible … Continue reading »

Exploring a Beaver Pond

There were alligators lurking just below the surface, but I had to know if there were any deep spots. I was actually on an overnight backpacking trip. I have hiked past this pond before, but I’ve never noticed any pools of mud. I suspect the damn was compromised in the storm so the pond has … Continue reading »

New Clip: Tarzan Explores the Swamp

You can find this clip in my  clip store. The title is a bit lame, because it is as much about humping the thick mud and struggling to escape. Most of the mud in this video is thick, moss covered peat that is bottomless in places and nearly solid in others, thanks to tree roots … Continue reading »

Exploring the Swamp

Hurricane Florence tore through in mid September, 2018 and it changed many features on the coast where it hit. That includes all of the places I go mudding. Today, I went out to explore a place I had not visited since the storm. Once I got there, I changed into my Tarzan thong so I … Continue reading »

Unseasonably Warm Weather

Well, it hit 27C (81F), today. I think I got a little sunburn. This weather does not feel like February. I offered to help a friend with a deep-water recovery operation this morning, so I arrived at my creek a little late for low tide. I started out my day in my wetsuit, since I … Continue reading »
