Mud Fest 2013 in Sweet Home, Ore.

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

I've been wanting to shoot Mud Fest for a long time and today I finally made it to one. I learned one thing. They don't call it Mud Fest for nothing. I cannot overstate how muddy it was. It made shooting very difficult. In fact, the mud actually shut me down after I went for a ride in Steven Montpas' 51 Willys. My rain gear and hands were so muddy I would have damaged my cameras if I were to continue.

But, I'm always up for a good ride and this was one of the best.
