Took the Mazda out into the bush after work today!

Well like I do everyday, I got home from work and drove to the bush to do some minor offroading for about 30 min or so. There is alot of water and it is muddy so it limits where I can go.

Well here are some pics

Me driving down the trail from the road




Me getting halfway down the trail and at the big mud hole, I could go through there but I won't even try



The 2nd way I can go but lots of water eww



Some wild turkey



Or I can go this way and yup, lets try it



My truck



Just a pic of the 2nd way again




Wow some deer 5 min later




I went the 3rd way and ended up here




Same shot as previous pic but different angle




A shot of where I broke through the ice and got stuck for the first time for all of u who remember




The ice I broke through :)



My truck again




Just a long straight a way




CD Player with XM I put in my car even through I got a year free of crappy Sirus




Other side of big mud hole, (way #1)




Same big mud hole




Going back to main trail through way #2




Same pic, different angle




Whops, I tried way #2 and made it, I sunk really deep so I dunno if I will try it again!




Different angle




Lots of people drop off garbage here






Trail gets smaller




At the wash (yes I wash it daily)







At home nice and clean




Another angle




Well here was my little expedition. Hope you all enjoy it!

You wash your truck every day? You should buy a good pressure washer you'd probably save money. Truck looks good and you are gonna be one happy man when you get some real tires on that thing.

Well I was it if I take it out into the bush and I do that everyday so yes I wash it everyday. I was thinking of getting one, it would save in the long run.

Yes TIRES!!! I NEED NEW TIRES I know but that is the next thing I buy for the truck after I get my system which is coming this Friday!

lol I know I need tires and a lift. So from the pics you guys saw. BFG AT's or MT's ? Even with tires and a lift I would be scared to go through half of this stuff!

I thought Mazda's cabs were a little different near the rear windows...that's what I get for thinking.

I like the truck, but man, those mud holes don't look too bad. I've gone through worse on job sites (in four wheel drive, of course) because I had to rather then wanting to.

Well the big mudhole #1 looks like nothing but I am sure it's a beast. Its only about 1 foot deep but then probably another 2 feet of really soft mud. I see tire marks through there but I have no idea how they got through there unless they had a winch!

I love the MT's but I hear they suck in rain and I drive 160 KM a day so I dunno.

Yes I want to take off the stickers but I wasn't sure how. Now Maybe I will do it on the weekend.

Why you don't like the single pipe? Do I need another one?

Everything is too deep for me to go through, hello I have stock tires lol. It's really muddy and wet out there and I don't want to have to get a tow truck back there so I took it sort of easy. I don't see any other people out there with 2 week old trucks. My friends think I am crazy for what I do. I also have no idea how to get the truck so muddy you can't see what colour it is. I drive slow in there and there is barely and mud flying around. I also don't have a heavy foot. I keep it in 1st and drive around like that.

i hate people who go mudding with stock new trucks (actually, i'm jealous) my truck has 32's all the bells and whistles,(4.10's, Limited Slip, 8.8 axle) yet i'm still afraid to try mudding. i may try if there were others with me (in case i get stuck)
