Mudding

I know that rainy season has almost come and gone in this area. But for those of us who just want to get a little mud on our tires, is there any really great area to have a ball?

I've got a few friends with Jeeps who would love to dirty their rigs up a bit. Thats really all we are looking for

A bit of a drive, but you may want to try Azusa Canyon: http://ohvguide.com/maps/azusacanyon.htm

Not my cup of tea these days, but I have had fun there in the distant past (mid 70's).

I grew up near Azusa.... Dont waste your time. Yeah you'll get your fill of mud but it's mostly nothing but 12 ft tall chevy's. Used to be fun but now its just a bunch of drunken morons for the most part. You'll be spending two days getting that crap out of every crevis of your rig... Here's a shot of me many yrs ago.. Still rock'n the same jeep....

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

We have "mud" up here in Crest. It's enough to coat everything with a layer of dirt, but nothing like thick clay.

All about that unibody life.

you could probably find this in Corral Canyon.. I did... sidenote: it wasnt fun.
It was fun until my front end went over a log and my rear end went into a hole.... Nothing a winch and getting down to your underwear and jumping into razor sharp icewater cant fix. funny thing is that I HAD to do it with phone in hand to take a picture. Otherwise it never happened.. Sad thing is that some old lady drove by in a cherokee and looked at me rather oddly while i was in my boxer briefs with a rather non-complimentary man part nearly showing, soaking wet in 37 degree weather while holding a phone. I wish she would of took a pic and sent it to me. She asked if I need help and I said no politely.. My inside voice was screaming for her to get lost!!!

just past the sheriff's special training compound.. about a mile from the main road. I went out there on a day off just to poke around. On the way out I saw a small lil water crossing. It was completely covered in an ice sheet.. Well while going through it it was breaking up and it put a serious drain on my jeep. I downshifted and pressed on. Then suddenly it dropped off about 2 ft deeper then my front end went up and then back down and then lost traction. I quickly popped the front ARB on, hit reverse and then went fwd again. Only to get stuck. A log behind my front and my rear was spinning in a hole someone else got stuck in.. A big oak tree was in front of me but it was FAR. About 80 ft far. I barely had enough wrap on the winch to keep a pull thank God!.
SOOOO, I had to get out, jump in while dodging ice as sharp as a razor , walk over and winch the tree, get back into the water to my driver seat, winch out and then get out again. It was #$%#$% cold! I was soaked. Then I had a 40 mile drive home w/o a top on... I learned my lesson.
