Then came the moment I'd been waiting for since we got there.....Yep, you guessed it Monster Truck Rides! $5 and a sign in sheet, then climb the moving staircase thingy to the back of the mud covered truck. I started towards the front when I thought, huh, the actions gonna be at the back of the truck. So, I turned around and "let" a few people go on up past me, and headed for the back. There was mud flying everywhere. Lydia had her hands over her hair and squealed through the whole thing. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I had globs of mud on my face that I refused to brush off. However, it did take 3 shampoos to get the mud and rock from my hair that afternoon.
The big story started when we got back to my car. A pretty red Corolla that sits about 4 inches off the ground. Has anyone jumped ahead and guessed the story yet? OK, so we got stuck, like 3 or 4 times. Thankfully we had Michael (very tall 14 y/o football offensive lineman!!) Yeah, for us. We started to lose Lydia around this time. It wasn't pretty. Unless pretty "whiny" counts. Sorry Lydia, but you know it's the truth. She's admitted it. But, Lydia, Mike, and some random men help push me out a few times. I tried to get Lydia to drive and let me push, I felt bad for her. But, noooo, she was not comfortable driving someone elses car. Fine. I got out the snow scraper and started getting the mud out from in front of the front tires. Then another guy with a shovel shows up and helps. At this point, I'm in front of the car jumping on every big mud there is hoping to tamp them down some. Don't know if it helped, but on the next push we were free. I didn't stop to let them in. I'd already told them the plan. I was driving to the road and would meet them there. So, once they caught up we were able to leave, finally! There's another good story. But, frankly I'm tired of typing now, so I'll just post a few pictures.
