or: Welcome to Wide Sky Country
(or: waiting on a tow truck – a bit embarrassing)
Gumbo is the descriptive term for mud that sticks to your boots and makes you taller, that sucks your boots from your feet leaving you hopping in cold wet socks trying to return foot to boot without falling over. I got my dad’s four wheel drive SO stuck when I was a teenager it took a truck and a tractor to get it out. The Peace country is known for its gumbo. Pretty country, with it’s wide skies and all- but damn that gumbo!
