If you’re into mud, and who isn’t, this is one heck of a video. If you are at work or have something you really need to do in the next half-hour or so, you might want to close your door or put off whatever it was you were planning on.
This 39-minute video is packed with mud bogging and racing action, plus all kinds of crazy goings on that naturally occur at the weekend mud bog festivals held at Hog Waller, a private property located about 10 miles southwest of Palatka, Florida. To give you a point of reference, Palatka is about halfway between Gainesville and Jacksonville.
Hog Waller is a 1100-acre outdoor family fun park owned by a local Putnam County family, and people come there to see all kinds of mud bogging and racing shows, as well as ride through the woods on ATVs and UTVs, or challenge the huge mud pit with their own truck! For a schedule of events, check out the Hog Waller Mud Bog website.
The main mud pit is over six acres in size, is 10-feet below ground level, and is surrounded by a safety fence made up of two thick cables. Hog Waller has bathing facilities, restrooms, and vendors who provide food, clothing, snacks, and even supplies for vehicles.
Much of the video footage you will be watching is shot from an airborne drone and it allows you great overall views of the facility. You can plainly see how spectators bring in RVs and camp out to double their fun for a weekend of mud racing. As well, many of the racers that come to Hog Waller are top notch-names, and you’ll see and hear from Dennis Anderson, and get to watch some incredible action from his awesome truck King Sling. So sit back and relax to the Best of Hog Waller Mud Bog 2013!
