Mud Bogging in the Yukon

On Wednesday after working in the dogyard I went to Whitehorse to have the oil changed in my van. Of course I had the family mechanic do it.....while there I got to see the latest incarnation of the mud bogger. It used to be blue, with a windshield and was named 'Thunderbox'. Excellent name-hearing damage when that thing roared into life. They put Bobcat tires on it for the trips thru the mud. Right now this thing has a broken piston in the motor, saw the new bigger motor on the floor of the shop. They are going to Dawson in two weeks for the new challenge. Also will be putting heavy duty axels in. They broke one in the middle of the 5 ft thick mud, got towed out and it only took them 15 minutes to change it!
Not my cup of tea but those young guys at the shop think it's a blast!
