About this blog

The original intention of this blog was to help promote my handcrafted jewelry and beading supplies. However, I believe I lead an interesting life (which Dave gets a lot of credit for), so you will often find ramblings about things other than beads and jewelry! Hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoy living it!!!

Mud Bog at Palm Beach International Raceway

Last Saturday night Dave and I went to the first mud bog at Palm Beach International Raceway (the old Moroso) in Jupiter. The racing started at 4:00pm, but we didn't get there until 7:00pm and the place was packed!!! The bleachers were totally full, so we walked down to the end of one of the race lanes and stood behind concrete Jersey barriers. We had a great time and spent much of the night dodging mud! Dodging the mud will kind of explain the quality of some of the pictures...they were taken with my cell phone and a few were while I was backing away from the spray! While we have been to plenty of "mudfests" this is the first race we've been to. PBIR did a good job of setting it up, but I think they may have found that they need to make it a little safer for the crowd to watch. We were able to get pretty close to the vehicles as they came down the lanes and there were a few close calls on the opposite side where they only had orange construction fencing, and not the concrete jersey barriers. One of the trucks came pretty close to having a moment that could have been filmed for "Most Shocking Videos"! Luckily, no one was hurt and the racing continued. They raced everything you could think off...trucks, jeeps, cars, buggies, and even a couple of snowmobiles! They also had a pretty big food and vendor area. We're already looking forward to the next one!
