Exploring

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

Camping in the Croatan

I had a get together with some people on Saturday, for a hike and picnic in the national forest. After that, a friend and I were canoeing to a campsite somewhere on Hunters creek. We left kind of late, and the sun was threatening to set on us, so we detoured up a small tributary … Continue reading »

2013-Oct-01 Improvising

I made yet another attempt at mudding, yesterday. Yesterday was my 3rd trip to the swamp that didn’t work out as planned, thanks to a high tide level. It may be seasonal, or it may be the moon phase. Anyway, yesterday was the worst low tide I’ve encountered in some time. Even my peat bog … Continue reading »

Kayaking at low tide

I managed to get muddy up to the top of my thighs, while exploring, today. However, my trip turned out to be a 5 mile paddle, with very little mud. I was late getting to the swamp, and the low tide was mediocre, at best. There was a stiff wind, creating a wind tide. Also, … Continue reading »

Exploring a Tributary

This morning, when I was supposed to be working, I slipped out for a short paddle on the creek. I figured I would miss most of the low tide, because I left late, but I caught the tail end of it, so I decided to slog up a side canal that I hadn’t explored in … Continue reading »

Rainy week

We got a lot of rain, this past week. Heather Blake and I went paddling on the creek Sunday morning (7/14), but the creek was still running high, thanks to the recent precipitation. Since the water was covering most of the mud, Heather and I wandered off into one of my favorite non-mudding spots to … Continue reading »

Swamping 2012-09-28

I haven’t had many opportunities to go to the swamp in the past month. As the full moon approached, I was trying to free up some time so I could take advantage of a late afternoon low tide. Friday was my last chance, and I ended up arriving at the water late, with only my … Continue reading »

Spring tides

Ha! That title is a bit of a play on words. Since spring has arrived, I could be referring to the time of year, but we just had a new moon, so I could also be referring to the  bigger than usual tides that come when the moon and sun align. Either way, the low … Continue reading »

Tides and Tarzan photos

Although it was only 45 degrees, with a cold, northerly wind this morning, I wrangled Heather into taking a trip with me, deep into the swamp. Recently, I’ve been frustrated with my success in predicting low tides. The wind has been blowing from the South and the tides have been higher than usual. A couple … Continue reading »

Exploring the swamp

Well, I went out today, in hopes of catching a low tide, but the tide never got low enough for mudding. I was determined to enjoy my time on the water, so I paddled a few miles and did some exploring. I got wet, I got a little dirty, and I found a tiny creek … Continue reading »

Cammies and zipper briefs

I went canoeing today around 17:00. It was threatening to rain, so I packed everything in watertight containers. The trip was uneventful. The tide never got very low, so I didn’t really go mudding. I did do some exploring,  and I set up the video camera a couple of times for some short clips. Here … Continue reading »

Mudding on July 23

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. The last time I went out at low tide, there was no low tide. Yesterday, there was a very good low tide. The tides  are not the most predictable thing, but I am not disappointed too often. So, if you’ve been keeping up, you remember that, … Continue reading »

July 16, Swamping

I ventured out around 17:15 today. I was hoping to catch the low tide, but I knew, from the wind, that there might not be a low tide. When I arrived at the creek, it was obvious that the wind was pushing water up into the creek. I decided to paddle to a distant mudding … Continue reading »
