Thanks to the remnants of Hurricane Laura, which proceeded to turn the better part of Western Kentucky into utter swampland, mud is now a part of the daily routine and will be until things dry out. Oh, who am I kidding? When multiple tropical systems keep tracking towards the Gulf of Mexico and inevitably landing and heading inland straight towards BangShift Mid-West, we might as well call it: summer is over and the fall mudding season is here in full force. So get the tires off of the field equipment, slap ’em on the first lifted Silverado you come across, and prepare to get straight-up filthy, because at this point in the year we hope we can forget, why not?
This footage is from the “Pipeline From Hell” mud bog that is found near Marshall, Texas and is from the middle of June of this year, delayed from it’s usual Good Friday run because…well, you know why it was delayed. It looks watery and sloppy, but do not be fooled, the mud in this pit is sticky if you can’t fling it off fast enough and these pits have depth. It’s not unbeatable, but the side-by-side on Sherp-like tires is a foreshadowing of what’s to come.
