Here in the center of New England, we have still a foot of snow on the ground and maple sugar season is in full swing. This also puts us right in the middle of what is called around here, mud season. We live out in the country on dirt roads, which in places turn into bottomless gumbo, similar to what these Glidden tour pathfinders in the EMF are experiencing out west.
From past experience, it looks to me that these gentlemen are going no where, until they find a team of horses to pull them out. The three gents in the background seem to have that all figured out.
