Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
I'm going with wooden bridges, especially the first one, this week. Although...the car buried in the mud was humorous.
The road ate him.
A word to the wise- think twice before traversing a "dry" lake bed. That goo under the crust has been waiting for eons just to suck you down.You're welcome.=TW=
I read a historical account of the pioneers crossing the salt pans west of the Great Salt lake, and that literally happened to some of them. The wagon wheels broke through the crust and then the oxen wore out trying to drag them along. A nightmare for sure.
As with snow, there are many kinds of mud: soupy, slippery gummy, sticky, thick and thin. I don't trust any of 'em. My least favorite is the kind that balls up on your boots as you're trying to get unstuck. That stuff will turn to cement when it dries and has to be chiseled off.I hate shoveling- best to let somebody else go first. Same with river crossings.To wit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDBthQ8C8HU 3:40=TW=
I'll go with those Jeeps doing the Hammers in Johnson Valley
That car in the mud. Needs someone on top of it, staring off, saying "Fifty yards".
The car was driven on to mudflats at Berrow beach,Somerset,U.K.
