Mud-slinging

As if we don’t have enough mud……..two of my guys had to go out and look for more!  Well, they found it.  

Here in central PA, 4-wheelin’ through the mud is an EVENT.  And this past weekend to celebrate his birthday, my husband took our youngest and introduced him to the world of mud.  

One of the local fire companies uses these mud runs, or Poker Runs, as a great fundraising event.  According to my husband, there were over 300 drivers there.  Apparently they ride to different stations on a 28 – 31 mile long trail course and collect poker chips. 

If their poker chip has a certain number on it, they can win something (not sure what).  At these poker runs, the firemen sell hotdogs and other sandwiches, coffee, and pop.  It sounds like a lot of fun!  Like something I may like to do.  We like doing most anything that benefits the fire company or other helping organization.  I would much rather go to a church dinner than a fancy restaurant or to a school concert than a huge show.  

I guess that's just me.  I'm simple, I know that.
