If you’ve gone off roading and haven’t gotten stuck in mud, then you aren’t living. There’s nothing quite like seeing a set of tires hidden under thick slop, and having to dig your rig out. That’s easy, though…worst comes to worst, you find a friend who has a tractor and have them give you a hand. But what happens when the tractor gets swallowed whole by cubic yards of liquefied, chunky, sticky and soupy soil? That’s just a bad day. Unless you have a friend with an earth-mover, you’re waiting on the ground to dry up…or a miracle…or a friend who has something purpose-built.
Tractors have to work out in the fields and they usually can handle a bit of sloppy mud just fine. But if you’ve got to send out a farmhand to find out how deep the mud is, maybe…just maybe…you might want to give it a day or two, ok?
