First adventure of 2021!

Yes, finally. On the last day of the first long weekend of summer, I managed to get myself out to the good ol’ creeky marsh! It was a nice bright sunny day, not too hot or cold. The mosquitos were insane. The pit is full of water, which wasn’t entirely unexpected. It’s pretty early in… Read More »

Fall colours!

Well it certainly seems to be the end of summer here in the wondrous Canadian forest. Temperatures are falling with the leaves. There’s a chance it will warm up enough next week, but not enough to go swimming in my mud hole. I did manage to get out to the pit last week. There’s no… Read More »

Another round of mud pit fun!

I can’t believe there was more water on top of my glorious mud pit than there was last time I visited! 🙁 Fortunately, my repeated visits are having a positive effect on the mud’s squishyness. I managed to get good and stuck and thoroughly enjoy myself, no shovelling required!! It was a nice sunny day.… Read More »

First Mudding of 2020!

Yes! I finally got off my fat ass and hiked out to my muddy mud place! So, I didn’t beat the timer after all, but I didn’t miss it by too much. Anyway, the nice muddy area around the creek is still pretty soaked. I’d really like to get in that mud, though, so I’m… Read More »

Today’s Ramblings

It’s been an absolutely beautiful summer here this year. There’s been the hot and humid periods, but we’re getting more decently nice days than last year. I’ve been feeling pretty lazy this season and have been favouring short to-the-point excursions.. I’ve made two trips in the last 4 weeks or so. One to the marsh… Read More »

So far this year is off to a pretty dirty start. 🙂 I’ve been to the pits 3 times in the last 4 weeks and each time has been pretty fun. This past weekend was a bit of a test. I wanted to see how long it would take to get to the pits via… Read More »

Course corrections!

Part of my plan for this weekend was to get to the marsh without following the creek so closely. I sometimes encounter people paddling along the creek, because it is a really serene chunk of nature there. I decided to chart a new course, with the help of my handy dandy cellphone/GPS/tracker. The trip to… Read More »


I finally got myself enough energy to slip into some nice soggy mud this weekend! I feel like it’s been years since I’ve gone out on a nice hike. Most of the nice deep pits are still under water, but I was able to stop at a spot I had visited a few years ago.… Read More »

A late summer adventure

I have been out in the bush again! 🙂 I was hoping this time to be able to get into the marsh but there is still too much fuckin’ water covering the crazy awesome mud I found at the end of the 2017 mud season… The hole I’ve been playing in for the last few… Read More »
