     Album:2016-02 Stuck in Mud

Went to a retreat with some friends up in the mountains.

It rained like heck, and we discovered that the driveway was not built to any sort of code, it was a light layer of gravel on top of many feet of clay.

Our bus sunk to it's axles, and we had to get professional help to pull it out.

It was an adventure, but nothing like getting stuck out in the desert.

The pit we left behind

Look at the mud on the front tire, showing how low the bus sunk. ( comments)
