I was dragging my butt up the last steepest hill on today's ride and just creeping along when I saw the most hilarious thing. It rained a lot yesterday and off to my left was a new house being built and the yard was torn up into a muddy mess-we're talking NC's finest muddy red clay. Off to the side of the foundations for the new house were two people rolling around in the mud. It was 98 miles into the ride and all kinds of thoughts were running through my mind. At first I really thought it was two females but as I got closer I could see it was a couple of young boys probably 10-12.
They were having the best time. Slinging mud, rolling around and splashing muddy water to where they were literally completely covered in mud. Their dad's were working on the new house but stopped working to look over at them and they laughed like crazy. I think they had a pickup truck so maybe the kids just rode in the back to get home.
It was one of those times that I really hated that I didn't have my camera with me. I wonder if Stapfam gets that muddy on his off-road rides????
