Mudfest - 11 February - Colfax, LA

I've got the top on for the winter so I want to go check out Mudfest (mud is too much of a pain to clean up with the top and doors off, that and I still only have windshield wipers on one side).

What: Meet 'n' Ride
When: Saturday 11 February at 9am
Where: Louisiana Mudfest in Colfax, LA
Who: Louisiana Jeepers
Why: Jeeps should get dirty

Who's interested?

I don't know where it is exactly but I'm sure that we could figure it out when we get there. The map on their website shows about where it is and I'm sure there will be a nice big sign telling us when we get there.

I don't have a winch but plenty of people there will have one. I do have a kinetic recovery rope which is ideal for sand and mud.

I went to their big event last year at Halloween. It is great event but you should be warned there is a lot of beer and mud there! It is very fun but do not go if you do not like to clean your jeep. The dusk from everyone driving is enough to make you cough for the following week. Do not worry about a winch, there is enough people around to yank you out. I would carry a couple of beers for "tipping" people when they pull you out. All in all, I liked the event and the turn out to last trucks gone wild.... 27,000 people.

Let me know if you have any more questions....

Anyways, here is a few pictures from last time....









The second to last picture is what type of jeeps to expect here. And the last picture is me stuck at about 645 in the morning (don't sleep well) and someone pulled me out before I could spool out my winch.

Looks good thanks to the pics. It should be a blast with this past weekend's rain, one hell of a mess!

Teeter, are you coming up on 171? Maybe we can meet up in DeRidder and head out from here.

Is anyone else interested?

I don't plan on the whole weekend. I'm towing my Jeep on Saturday and showering and sleeping in my house at the end of the day.

If I was done re-rebuilding my jeep I would go meet you guys. I live 18mi from there.
I should be done with the build in March if you guys plan on going again give me a heads up, I think I can pull out anyone who needs pulling.
