This is the first of 2 videos from my trip into the swamp on November 1. In this video, I kayak into the swamp, get out of my kayak on a muddy shoreline, walk through some tall grass, hop onto a shelf of mud, and discover that I can’t get free. I proceed to sink, slowly, as I struggle to escape without success. The video ends when I’m up to my shoulders, and I’ve given up all hope of escape.
I’m afraid I had to leave out some of the best banter, because a large segment of the video was out of focus and I couldn’t stand to include all of it. I did include some of it, for continuity. It’s not too out of focus, but I’m a snob when it comes to production details.
