Gunge balloons!
alright yall, just alittle while ago i tried a balloon full of slime! It was tricky to make so I thought id talk about it here. I started out with mix the slime in a bowl. It came out pretty thick. I took a funnel and an old coke 2 leeter. I put the funnel in the bottle and squeezed the bottle so it would suck in air. The gunge would not flow into the funnel because of how thick it was so i had the bottle suck the gunge into it. Once i had the ammount i wanted i took a balloon and blew it up with air, nothing fancy just blew into it. I the twisted the opening to prevent air from leaking out. Stretching the opening of the balloon over the bottles top and let the balloon unwind. Squeeze the bottle till your gunge goes it the balloon. Then just take the balloon off the bottle and let the remaining air in the balloon go or youll have a major splatter affect and have to wipe pokadots off your showerings ceiling....derp.... but anyway, I hope this gives yall something fun to think about. :) enjoy!

A Submergence Question...
I'm curious...

How many of you like to actually go completely under when you're wamming? kiallamraptor posted an incredible video of some excellent mud that looks like it would be totally sinkable, but how many actually like to do it?

For myself, I love it, but I find it difficult. All of the mud I've found has been either mostly water, or mostly clay. And clay is a heck of a lot denser than the human body, so I tend to float like a cork and simply CAN'T submerge! I've tried wearing nearly 60lbs of diving weights, and I just can't go under when playing in clay. It's just too thick.

I did manage to come close a few times? I was wamming at the Kiptopeake Park marshes, and wow! That was awesome. I was able to slip under quite a bit, but it still wasn't full submergence.

So what's your preferences? And how do you do it? Is it the right type of mud? Or hard work?

Also, on a side note, I discovered that wamming in tidal marsh mud is a very bad idea. I ended up in the hospital with what at first blush appeared to be a very nasty infection, but they never figured it out. I had no bacterial markers at all, none. But my legs swelled like balloons and turned bright red and hot!

I think I figured out what it was, and I'm guessing it was hydrogen sulfide. Tidal mud is very high in H2S, and being submerged in it for more than an hour means it got absorbed into my skin and bloodstream. It occurred to me that I'd seen it once before, when I'd been wamming in tidal mud just outside of San Diego, at Torrey Pines State Park. I had a few red blotches, but I'd only been playing for an hour. At Kiptopeake, I'd been in for several hours. The problem with that theory, is that I can't find anything regarding H2S absorption through skin.

Anyone else encounter anything like this?

Midnight Muckiness
I've been wanting to do this for a long time.

I kept telling myself, it's too dangerous to go wamming at the quarry at night. The trail is too dark, the rock-piles are too loose, the area I park the car is FAR too wealthy and the people will call the cops in a heartbeat. Doing it in the day is one thing, but at night is quite another.

Despite all this knowing better, I went anyway.

Oh my. I'll be doing this a LOT more often. For one, it's the perfect sort of quiet. No traffic sounds, no possible hikers, no possible ATV riders. And 100% private. Even if someone DID come poking around at that hour of the night, they'd never see anything, because 99% of humans insist on using a flashlight. I had one with me, but I was using the red LED to just give contrast to the uneven ground. But if you use the white light, not only can you not see beyond the beam, but everyone else within 3 miles can see you perfectly.

The air was hot, the water warm and the mud cool. I got into my favorite spot and liquefied the silt for a nice, long bath. Sooooo nice to just totally submerge in silt so thick it's like cake frosting. A friend of mine noted, that I seem to be happiest when I'm at my muddiest? Can't say I disagree!

Totally relaxed now. Time for shower, then bed. Heh! If I were to go in the sun, I'd sparkle from all the rock dust.

First post of FUN!
*waves* i thought I should make my first post here. :) This is for all you pranksters out there. This if for your X, GF, wife, BF, room mate or anyone. Take your average leaf blower, mk. take off the tube or what ever its called. Plug the muzzle where the air comes out and empty as much shaving foam into the tube as possible. Pit it back on the blower and lay in wait for the victim. When the time is right open the leaf blower on full blast. idk if it will work but it sure as hell is worth a try. ;) the idea came from MTV btw.

Using Flour: Bad Idea
I still have an infection in my leg, so I wanted to avoid my usual weekend wamming trip. It's been raining lately, and the rivers are swollen, and Crabtree Creek isn't exactly the best place to be swimming or wading. Especially since the sewage treatment plant is a few miles upstream.

So, I had an old jar of flour, and decided to try that. It makes a WONDERFUL slime, nice and gooey, and really thick. But you see, there's a hidden enemy in the flour, and it's name is gluten.

Were the flour to be free of gluten, there would be no trouble. But alas, this was not to be. After washing off from my fun, I found my fur to be dotted with little balls of floury glue.

Exceptionally tenacious balls of floury glue.

Lemme tell you, you shall never, ever know just how many hairs you have, in as many places you have, until you've got little balls of floury glue sticking to bunches of them.

Likewise, you shall never comprehend just how sensitive those hidden places are until you've tried pulling little balls of floury glue off them.

Thankfully, Mane & Tail shampoo is an excellent lubricant and surfactant, so I was able to get most of them off. I rather suspect that doing laundry for the next few days will be..."interesting", to say the least.

Frappr' Map
(X-Posted to Yahoo FurryWam, but relevant for here too..)

Does anyone still use the old Frappr' Map? (http://www.frappr.com/furrywam) I thought that was a great idea. It doesn't seem to load very well anymore these days.. lots of "Image Not Available" zones.

It'd be neat to get a reliable database going that wasn't based on a particular site, (Something that wouldn't die if the service changed) but could either be embedded or provide links to various maps using Google and other API's.

There's a lot of new tools out now that weren't available before. Particularly MSN Live maps' Bird's-Eye-View (maps.live.com), and Things like ACME Mapper's pairing of Google Maps and Terra Server Topological maps. (http://mapper.acme.com/)

Is there enough interest in sharing mudding locations to either resurrect the Frappr map or work on something else?

Mud season is comming!
So i was hoping to find out how many of you might like to meet up for RL mud adventures. I myself am ready to go when the weather allows.  I am looking forward too summer very much.  Putting a BBQ in the mix would be fun too. Would love to visit new mud places that I have never been. I have a van and am willing to car pool to the destination. Sorry if I don't get back to you instantly I am still working on getting my comp fixed and the net up. So I'm at the mercy of the work computer. but not for long. It's snowing in Beaverton right now. We always get knocked up usually in feb. with one last shot of winter. Any who hope to hear back from many soon.

Muddy hugs to all.

Hi all! Muaddy hugs!!!!
So thanks for accepting me into the group. Muddy hugs to all. I hope to go on RL mud adventures and meet who I can. I have a van so I would be willing to car pull and travel for muddy fun! Sauvie island is the bomb in the summer. Mud lake is extreme MURRR!  Acre's of mud all around! I would also love to explore with others and find new muddy places go! I think I can travel to Washington to.  I will apologize in advance if it takes me a while to get back to you but I have just moved and am waiting for pay day  to hook up internet and replace my hard drive. But I do have internet at work. If I have down time to use it. Hope to hear form you all soon.

Gluck Gluck, Where's the Muck Muck?
 I'm on the prowl for some good slime and or muck recipes. Its still far too cold out to even attempt to explore any good mucks or mires about and I've been feeling the need to get messy. I've tried some fine foods but I'm more in the mode for something slimy, Any ideas? Any products? Any clue?   

Or is everybody off hibernating away this long dull winter?
I've not seen nearly anybody up and around?

I Brought Candy!

I posted some more/other pictures over on my webpage, their mainly muddy, all clean though questionable, but should be a good looksie. Some of you may recognize, but yes, I am the true photographer behind those muddy instances. I can give you the when's the where's the what exits and that sort on all the pictures and even the one commission that I requested of someone.

Here is the address I have right now, I'll be doing more posting there aswell, perhaps a teaser here (so I won't clog the memory here) Then the main post there. We'll see how it goes...

Here's one for right now in case ya don't get there right now.


*try the site again an a little while, the site is being a pain in my tailside right at the momment.*

Ucky Mucky Paradise
Little worksafe picture.

This is a mucky paradise out in the tidal lands of central Washington state (oyster bay in particular)
This place is several miles of tidal mudflats. It ranges in depth from about shoe sole deep to about up to my waist in the areas that I explored. Its a wonderful consistency on a hot day, feels like fairly smooth yet firm cake batter. There are also pots where it goes to pure sinkysinky slimy slop. (waist deep places) I'd post more pictures of this place, but their definately NOT work safe, nor am I really comfortable showing off what I was or wasn't wearing. I may have de-lurked about my mudding experiences, but my clothing choises are kinda off path and I'm not going there ;) Talk to me personally if ya have any questions on that particular subject. Otherwise here's the muddy.

Washington MUD!
I've garnered some experience over the past few years mudding with me myself and I most of the time, but I've drawn up a map of my many muddy experiences. Those furs that are familiar with Washington State may find this of interest:


Its a google custom map thingie.

I've gone ahead and done a massive update of this map. It now has over 80 entries:
I've also put together a loose Key so you can decipher the different colors I've used in my interest points

Further explanation:
Green: I usually give a description of depth and quality, or how to get there from here and that-sorts

Blue: I can't get there from a point on land, you could get there via zodiac or kayak or other small watercraft

Yellow: Refererences, historical data, and other odd misc.

Red: Warning/Danger/Caution This site is either too visible from public, or has other hazards or toxic.

Pink: I'd love to explore here further, I may have seen this place from the road, or google maps or otherwize.
Mostly just I'd like to explore it further. I may make it Green when I've explored it further.

Furrywam Intro
Greetings everyfur!
This is kind of an intro for me into public WAM. I've always been more of a lurker a tad embarrassed about this whole thing, but now that I see others out and about, well I may as well come clean (clean, no way) about my involvement in the wet and messy.

I've had my paws dirty for a good long time now starting back when I was only in sixth grade or so at a summer camp. I've been hooked from there. I enjoy deep mud, swamps, tide-flat regions, off season slime-fun, and other messes like that. I was inspired by the works of Seigewolf, and now Torrle too. (I saw that Mudwolf picture a while back, and finally found the artist involved ;) )

I've also been fursuiting, and have designed several fursuits. I've got 5 now (just updated that number tonight) heads in my work-in-progress setup and one of those is destined for my swampfox project.

I live in Washington State, way up north by the border of Canada. If anyone needs any help locating mud and good swamps over western WA, please feel free to ask as I've been all up and down the coast.
