If you have never attended a mud bog, this would be a great one to start with. Over 500 acres and THOUSANDS of people, it is SO MUCH FUN!!!! People come from all over the country to come out and play in the mud.
I could never tell you exactly how great this was, and since pictures speak louder than words, here are some of the photos I took at Iron Horse Mud Ranch.
Don't worry, you don't have to have an ATV or Mud Truck to enjoy this event! We just sat on the outer edge of one of the holes and watched everyone else. And you would not believe the amount of people that take their "everyday drivers" into the holes! It is so much fun!
There is plenty of room, and so many people bring motor homes and spend the entire weekend. No motor home, NO PROBLEM! There are tons of people that bring their tents and just camp out for the weekend.
One of the things I loved about Iron Horse Mud Ranch, is that their #1 concern is the safety of all guests. Due to that, there are NO VEHICLES moving after 7pm. You can walk around as much as you like, but no vehicles. And don't worry, at 8pm they had a concert on Friday & Saturday night, this time it was JT Curtis.
Another great plus is that they give 50% discount for all Active Military & Vets. (To recieve the discount you must present a DD214, VA Health Card or a Military ID.)
I have been to several mud bogs, and this is BY FAR the biggest and best I have been to yet!
Can't make it this time? Don't worry, they do this twice a year, once in the Spring & once in the Fall. So make sure to follow their Facebook page for updates on the next event.
