I like mud. I also like dry hardpacked trail. I am never quite sure about the amount of evaporation that needs to occur before riding again. Obviously this will vary by local but how about a general rule of thumb...I.E. No riding in broth, yes to gumbo. Whatever food preference you like may be inserted here. I do happen to reside in...SIIIGH the mid-GRUMBLE-west SCOWL. Any thoughts?
