Early season mudding

Posted by on February 11, 2018

The weather has been milder, of late, and today was rather nice, so I ventured out for a muddy adventure in the swamp. I was thinking the mud would be really cold, so I wore jeans. As it turned out, the mud wasn’t that bad; especially for February.

I did shoot video, but I did not sink that deep. The mud-line on my jeans in the photos you see here shows how deep I got. I couldn’t have gone much deeper in the spot I selected. I went there, because I knew I could get convincingly stuck there.

After the “stuck” video, I shot tried some mud-bondage predicament setups. That was fun, and it was unexpected, because I was sure I’d have to make a quick exit after sinking in ice-cold mud. As I mentioned in the first paragraph, the mud just wasn’t that cold, and the water in the creek was pretty tolerable, too.

Once I find the ambition to edit the video, I’ll be releasing a new clip with a teaser for those who just want to watch the highlights. As is usually the case with these early season clips, they are not the most extreme, but I was really excited by the chance to get muddy, and it only seems fitting to share the fun.

    Those are photos that bring back memories of some of the classic quicksand scenes in some of the 1940s and 1950s movies. Guys stuck in thick mud and slowly sinking as they struggle to get free.

    Here we are in another drought year…so far, a little over 6″ of rain…and rainy season is about half over…doesn’t look good. I’m still hoping for one fairly big storm that will creat some mud pools down at San Onofre State Beach…I’ll be off to explore if that happens.

      Sorry to hear you’re still experiencing drought conditions. We just had an overnight flood. 🙁

      I’m glad I got out, yesterday. I probably won’t have another chance for a week or more.

    It looked like a spot you’ve not been to before (unless you have).

    Hi Doug, yup another season starting. I also ventured outback to my sinking hole, expected it to be much colder like you stated. Wasnt bad, I was just in my speedo and sunk to my nipples. Actually the mud seemed warmer the deeper I sunk. Coldest part was the cleanup afterwards. Glad to see you back out for another season also. Always like your post and videos.

      I swear the ocean temps are getting noticeably warmer. Of course, it’s just anecdotal, but I remember the surface of the mud getting so cold it hurt my bare skin.
      The deeper mud doesn’t change temperature that much. It’s cool in the summer and warmer that the surface mud in the winter and early spring. I’m sure you’ve noticed. 🙂
      Personally, I like to bask in the warm surface mud in June, but that’s because I am spoiled by our long summers.
      I should have help this year. Help with the camera, and possibly a new sinking partner. This could be a big year for mud video.

      It is a little early, even for North Carolina. I don’t count on mudding without a wet-suit until April, at the earliest. We will probably still get some cold weather, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be out again in February because there are more warm days in the forecast.
