I then took a photo of the bog, showing the disturbed part where I had submerged and then escaped:

I cleaned my upper body off, my swim cap and goggles really making cleanup of my head a snap, preventing my hair, ears and eyes from getting muddy. I hung my junk shorts on a tree to dry, and also my swimming cap. Then, it was time to work at mushing up the mud, starting in the northwest corner, having an initial stimulating sink as well. Because of the stiff layer, it kinda allowed me to step in around waist deep, and then caused me to slowly slip down deeper and deeper into the slimy doughy farting quagmire while standing still, until I reached a point where I had to make movements to get sucked down deeper. I was happy that there weren't many weeds, but noticed that I must have introduced a number of tiny pieces of sticks and wood to the bog with the mud I added the previous year. So, in addition to mushing the few weeds into the mud and breaking up the stiffer layer underneath, I also had to pick out small pieces of sticks and wood! I worked my way clockwise around the bog, with those extra things to do making the job take a lot longer than I had anticipated, much of the rest of the afternoon. The mud was too thick for me to move around in it, so I would sink down into a spot, and then mush and clean everything around me within easy reach, before working myself out and moving to an adjacent spot to sink myself down into and repeating the job, getting leg cramps each time I extracted myself, which would be relieved quickly once I stood on the grass and flattened my foot. I did my best to mix the water into the mud, pulling mud up and over and mixing it in, with mud on the sides being a bit looser on top than in the thicker center. The occasional deerfly would try to land on me for a meal, and rather than swatting it with muddy hands when it was on my cleaner upper body, I would try and brush myself against the sedge grasses around the edge. The frogs were still hopping around in the area, and would scatter as I moved around. They must have been making the pools of water there their home, and I was messing it up for them.
Once I had gone all the way around with my mushing and breaking up of the stiff layer and the removal of every piece of wood I could feel (there seemed to be a large one on the east side, but it was deep down within reach of my feet, and I didn't want to strain my leg/foot/hip to try to bring it up to within arm's reach), I jumped back into the center of the bog, where it was the thickest, for one final stimulating sink to my chest, and lingering there, not wanting to leave, even though I was feeling a bit on the cool side, the sun seeming to be getting obscured by the smoke again with its heat no longer being felt. One thing I really liked was how periodically one of my feet would suddenly feel the mud part away from it, as a pocket of swamp gas inflated there. The mire would then slowly pass the gas along my body, working up my leg, and up my abdomen, and then finally let out a fart at the surface. Other pockets of swamp gas would fart out in other areas around me as well, all of which really adding to the experience! The bog had obviously built up a lot of gas over the spring/summer! There were also some clods of sod under the mud which offered lots of material for decomposition. It was as if the bog was alive, with digestive processes continuously going on beneath the surface, which I was slowly being sucked down into!
Once I felt I was finished, I worked myself out, and then smoothed the surface out, which was a bit awkward to reach in some places without getting back into the mire, the process taking a little while before I got it right, with the frogs moving out of the way. I then took photos of the reconditioned bog from different angles:

To Be Concluded...
Hey there, I definitely enjoy watching your videos. However, I was wondering if you would ever make a video of you jumping in your mushed up pit and leaving your junk shorts behind? I know I’m not the only one interested in seeing that. If you can’t post it on YouTube even if it’s unlisted maybe I could share my email or something.
