The Mud Life Issue 17 August 2020

Turner’s Torque

During lockdown a lot of us have been bored, and once we’ve painted the house, built the decking, done a chassis and engine swap we’ve been sat around twiddling your thumbs wondering what to do next.

There was a common question on Facebook during that time, and that was, which YouTube channels do people watch and subscribe to? The good news is that there are plenty, from of 4×4, car, camping and other similar channels out there, some are epic with hundreds of thousands of subscribers, and some not so much.

With that in mind, we’ve decided to create a new feature, our ‘YouTube channel of the month’, and to kick it off we’re starting with JK Overland, which you can read about later in the mag.

Now that us 4×4 folk have begun driving green lanes again, it’s inevitable that we’re going to start rubbing some people up the wrong way, and that’s what has appeared to have happened up on the Old Coach Road in Cumbria.

After the massive storms around 3 years ago, many lanes, including Old Coach Road, were damaged with severe water erosion. To a lot of people, this made the lane more of a challenge, but to others it became undriveable

So in 2018, members of GLASS, Trailriders and other user groups donated both money and effort to the repair it, so it can again be used by everyone.

However, recently a plaque that celebrated the repairs has been vandalised. It was made with toughened glass and bolted to the rock, and judging from the damage it was attacked with an axe.

The question has to be asked, why would anyone do this?

As someone wrote on a Facebook page, “Someone was both really angry and well prepared to do this damage, I suggest they seek out some mental health professional for some help immediately.

Anyway let’s leave this negativity behind, and head off into the 100 or so pages of issue 17. Enjoy!

Damian, Editor-in-Chief, and Karen Lee A.K.A. Muddy Madam, Creative Director
