@woods racer. I am very intrigued by that terrain. Big trees and little under growth. What is that area called and how big is it? I bet there are a lot of turkeys there too. TIA

An interesting hazard we have in western WA is glacial till that gets covered with big puddles for months. Think loose grapefruit size rocks and slimy roots nicely hidden from your view. You learn to use that neutral position or go swimming.

In Vermont we have mud puddles that have 1 or 2 inches of water in them and 2 to 3 feet of suction mud under the surface. You learn to either fully commit or go around.

The area w the rocks is @ the Hatfeild McCoy trails , trail #199 on the Rockhouse loop. The mud pics are 10 minutes from my house right here in suburbs of Northern Va. First pic I was just trying to figure out if I could by pass a already angry mud hole and get a better shot at the uphill on the other side of the bog. NO BUENO.. Second mud hole was comletely covered w leaves , and usually isnt so deep . Just lucky I guess . Yes, there are lots of wild turkeys running around here, they can be quite aggressive. We came upon a group of 4 standing on a ridge . They didnt move or even flinch, just kinda stared at us for a long second then turned their backs on us and slowly walked awy as if to say Thats right MOFOs ....you dont want none of this.

Yep , we got the suction mud too. Years of decomposing leaves @ such makes pretty good quickcrete.

Thanks WR,

It becomes clear how you came to be against that tree from that angle! I am reworkin the protection on my new radiators now :)

I had turkeys on my property on Mt Hood OR. Liked to sit on my deck with a beer and wait to hear which tree the Tom chose for the night's roost.
