Why Do People Go Mudding?

Here’s Our Top 8 Reasons To Go Mudding:

  1. Get in touch with your inner child — dig deep, he or she is still there!
  2. Forget good clean fun — you’ve never had so much fun getting dirty with your friends.
  3. Mud buddy — everyone needs one, so be one! Encourage your friend to go deep — you’ll be there for them when they get stuck.
  4. Prove your ride — you paid (are paying) big bucks for your 4×4, SUV, ATV, or UTV so prove it will get out of the hole (without a strap).
  5. Show your dirty side — mud bogging photos are the only dirty photos you can post on Facebook without judgement!
  6. Family bonding — the family that gets muddy together sticks together.
  7. Glow sticks — when was the last time you played in the mud AND in the dark?
  8. Get in the backseat — sleep in the car, bring your tent, RV, or stay in a cabin for the weekend.
