Fell in a bog on walk in the snow on Dartmoor today - now waiting for the water to warm up enough for me to shower to remove bog from my person, and then from my expensive walking boots (they're allowed to "leak" when the water comes in through the same hole as my feet).
Hoping the shower poltergeist will have the decency to grant me two warmish showers in 1 day, preferably without being near boiling - according to the plumber there should be "no" hot water with the boiler thermostat where it is, but it's 45/45/10 whether you get boiling, freezing or more or less ok, so new thermostat on order!
Worse thing was, the snow wasn't bad enough to be an excuse for misjudging my step over the bog - felt where I was putting my foot down, thought it felt "ok" then sunk to mid thigh on that food. Managed to dive forward to faceplant on solid ground with the rest of me though, so no "stuck in the mud" drama, just cold, wet feet and legs (and about 3 miles still to walk before getting back to car!)
Done that too - on the Isle of Skye in the Cuillin. End of a long day, few hundred yards to go, walking on the flat. What looked like a puddle was..... up to my left knee in ooze - I of course promptly face-planted into it. The bigger mess was made by pulling my foot out when the back-suction kicked in. In deepest sympathy, my friends laughed .... for a very long time. We were camping....
