Stuck in It (Mud P3)

Have you ever planted yourself ankle deep in mud, behind a jeep which is most seriously stuck, and been told to Push! whilst the driver revs the engine and wills the car loose?

Talk about raining sludge!
Even more stimulating was when we were in convoy, and more than one vehicle got stuck! The drivers would confer, like generals planning an assault.

Those predicaments required teamwork.

Teamwork is often the very best way to get unstuck. Can you think of a time a team helped you out of a sticky place – whether figuratively or literally?


September – Homage to Mud Month (P1)

I like mud. A lot. Don’t ask me why. Maybe because I grew up bouncing around in the back of an old-school Land Rover (the real kind)… way back when. My dad took us to every nook and cranny, every small outpost of Costa Rica, navigating foot-deep ruts made by other intrepid vehicles, or forging our own channels through the soggy, sticky stretches of muck.
