2008 Rooster’s Country Bar MudJam

Category : Hobbies

A couple of us decided to venture up to Delhi, La. to check out the Rooster’s Country Bar MudJam. This was the first event held on the 1600 acre farm / wildlife ranch in Delhi, La. The property borders a large field that’s home to Rooster’s Country Bar, one of the coolest bars you’ll ever see.

I’m not real sure how many people attended but I would guess that it was close to 2000 or 2500. I could be way off though. There was ATVs and UTVs of every size and color. There must have been nearly a hundred Polaris Razrs here.

All in all, it was a great ride. The staff was very nice. All the attendees were gracious and kept their trash to themselves and didn’t throw it out on the property. There was mechanics on site that fixed just about anything you could bring by including tires that were torn off the rims.  🙂  There was plenty of room to ride and plenty of mud to keep you busy. However, being the first event of this type there, there is some improvement to be made. One would be to setup a wash station ofr these muddy bikes and riders.

They’re having another ride here on October 10, 11, and 12th during The Bayou Bash 2008. There’ll be a screamin’ safari tour, the ATV ride, and Bucky Covington will be performing live. You can find out more about the event at Check it out.

Louisiana Mudfest – Labor Day Weekend 2008

Category : Hobbies

The Louisiana Mudfest was held this past weekend in Colfax. This Labor Day weekend episode of Louisiana Mudfest turned out very good. Unfortunately, I pulled out during the Sammie Kershaw concert to beat the traffic and rain being caused by hurrican Gustav. The event was scheduled to continue on until today (Monday), but I’m not sure it was as we’re receiving heavy wind from Gustav.

Be sure to check out some of the pictures I took over the weekend. You should also plan to attend their next event once it’s announced. The event has come a long way since their original one held six months ago. Be sure to drop me a line or comment. I’ll be more than happy to post any pictures you may have of the event! Let me know…

You can find the photos of this event plus a few others under the ATV Mudride Section to the right.

A Christmas present to myself

Category : Hobbies

I’ve been looking at the 17HMR for a while now. Everyone seems to love this caliber round and there’s tons of positive feedback on the web. I decided to get myself one for Christmas after looking at them for the past six months. I picked this Savage 93R17 BTVSS up today at Academy Sporting Goods. Here’s a picture of my new “toy”. Make sure to keep checking back as I’ll have a write-up on it later this weekend. Top
