I ment to Kingman farm today to put in a few good miles. Everything was all nice and dandy, beautiful weather. Blue sky, not a cloud in there. Probably in the high 60's ot even 70. I was going and after a few miles in i came across a rather large pond which extended well beyond the width of the trail. So i figure its just water, I can survive being wet. So as soon as my fronmt tire enters this i sink down another 6 or 7 inches in MUD. I found i could not go through this mud on the bike so yes i had to get off and look for little stepping stones to cross it. It was probably for about 20 feet. I would hit a mud patch here and there after there for a little. Then it got to the point where it was 20 foot mud blob after 20 foot mud blob. After 3 of these i said screw it and turned back and stuck to the field.
So how do you deal with mud? Is plowing through mud past 4 inches a lost cause or what?
