The phrase "pictures don't do it justice" applies here. Considering that we hit some mud at full throttle though, I suppose it really isn't that bad.

One of the two ways to the back playground. Was a bit interesting.

Posing


The other way to the back playground had some mud as well


The quickmud was hungry for tires and boots this afternoon


Taking a break


Unfortunately I didn't get a video of this, but there was some epic mud flinging when a buggy buried his 44s. This didn't work, but it was fun to watch.

Reminiscent of High Dive here. That passenger... rear... tire of mine does not like to stay on the ground.

It's near Knoxville. Thanks to some inconsiderate assholes, trips here are by invite only (according to Dawn on Facebook). Apparently some guys shoved the landowner's boat into the pond and it sank.

Thanks for the info. Yep, jerks all around the country are getting more and more off road opportunities shut down. Really sucks.
