Mud Bogging

On Saturday there was a mud bogging event at Chelmsford, which is a community just outside of Sudbury, about a 15min drive away. Mud Bogging is a basically a drag race through a water/mud filled trench against both the clock and your opponent in the other lane. There were a number of classes, standard, which are just trucks, some with bigger wheels and more powerful engines, others looked like somebody’s mum was going to pretty cross that they’d had her car, because she has to drive it to work on Monday! Then the modified class, which meant that the truck was not road worthy and specifically built for the task at hand. also there were 4 wheelers (ATV, quad in English), but I didn’t see them go.. It rained, hard, so i left at about 3pm.

I found this wasp, building her nest in Troy’s shed, I asked if I could have the nest, Troy thought that I was nuts. I might well be, but all the same I had it. It is VERY thin and fragile, slightly broken now.. but still cool.

  1. I bet you wish you had had your landy to have a go on the mud bogging – must be more fun taking part than watching I would imagine. Looking forward to seeing the wasps nest! Make sure Tigger doesn’t play with it before I have a chance to see it! Love you xxxxx
