Default Lake Okeechobee Mud Fest

I just got back from Florida, went there just for this Mud Fest and to hang out with my older brother. Un-Fucking-Believable. rumored at 35,000+ attendance. 80 acre mud hole. Trucks that make most of ours look like Matchbox Trucks. There's another one in August and again next Februaury. I'm Urging everybody to check this out it is Amazing. I've seen some cool shit, done lots of cool shit, this takes the cake by far.
It's as crazy or mellow as you want this experience to be, you can either camp on the no rules, except NO RIDING ANYTHING BUT A HUMAN AFTER DARK side of the grounds or the more mellow OLD PEOPLE GO TO BED WITH THE SUN SO WE DON'T EVEN NEED TO TELL THEM NOT TO DRIVE ANYTHING AFTER DARK, BUT FOR GOOD MEASURES JUST DRINK YOUR ENSURE AND NO DRIVING ANYTHING AFTER DARK SIDE.
I had my doubts about it with that many people, but Most everybody was amazingly respectful and helpful. Everybody followed the no driving rule for the most part. They will litterally throw your ass out if your caught driving after dark without letting you pack your shit or take anything. Not even your vehicle. you have to wait until the next day to come back escorted and get your shit. Rumor has it you'll have all of your stuff but every vehicle is completely dismantled, not destroyed. A local 4x4 club comes in full tool boxes and gets to taking your car apart.
Like I said I felt safe and relaxed the entire time. No Incidents except All of these FILTHY FOUL DISRESPECTFUL WOMEN KEPT SHOWING ME THEIR BREASTESES.
I should have got more pictures, but I'm a horrible Photographer. The ones I've got are here http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/inde...lbumId=1682105
If anyone wants to tow my Bronco and There vehicle down there Either August or February let me know we'll make arrangements. I don't have a Tow Rig

Florida Swamp trucks are something to see. We used to go to Naples quite often, and you'd see them out int he glades.

Then they show up on ebay and everyone here pokes fun at them for being too tall. :tonka:

Well i agree with everyone here they are too tall for Michigan 2 tracking style trail riding, but everybody has to see and hear them at least once in there life. The pictures do no justice. All of the big trucks are louder than hell, most are open headers and obviously well built big blocks

My thoughts exactly, I would have never dreamed of or imagined the Buggies I saw. 15 feet up there are pontoon decks with 10-12 people. Below is a motor and then huge fucking tractor tires. Them rigs topped out at like 5 mph and not one got stuck, they just cruise araound all day hitting the deepest spot in the lake

Yeah I lived in Florida for 4 years, and saw some really big buggies that would crawl through anything. They are good for only mudding though. But I guess that is all there is to do in Florida since it is so flat.

I didn't know she had a boyfriend on the side, I should have known I couldn't take care of all of that woman.
