Not much of anything going on today except one of the RVers staying here at the campground got stuck in the mud down near the lake. Fortunately he wasn't pulling his trailer at the time he was just driving near the lake in his one ton Dooley and didn't realize how slick it gets near the water.
The mud near the lake is very deceptive it doesn't look like you're driving into a mud bog because it's not actually a bog its just very very slippery. And to make it worse the land slopes almost imperceptibly towards the lake so you can get close to the lake but when you try to come back you find out its ever so slightly uphill and that's enough to make getting out almost impossible.
How impossible is it? I watched two four-wheel-drive pickup trucks pulling at the same time trying to get that truck out of the mud and they couldn't do it. And it's not because they didn't have the power, the problem was they each only had about 25 feet of tow chain so their trucks were sitting in the mud and they couldn't get any traction.
After two or three hours of trying to get that truck unstuck the state Park sent their fire truck down to the lake and he was able to stay 100 feet away where it was dry, roll out 100 feet of winch cable and winched the truck out of the mud.
All of that activity was the high point of my day which quickly slid to mundane and then bottomed out at boring. I guess I should be thankful that most of my days are mundane and boring although I do sometimes envy other full timers whose travels are filled with excitement and adventure.
Notice how the stuck truck, that's the one in the back, is not hubcap deep in mud.
This is what it looked like after all the trucks left. There's no deep holes its just very very slippery.
