Post A Thank You to the Mudboat Community
As the sun starts to show itself and the rains and floodwaters subside, the true picture of what has happened over the past few days becomes clear to many. South Louisiana has been through a hell of a time with some biting the bullet, and some losing it all. Out of all the devastation there were the ones who stepped up to the plate. The common man, the hunters, the fishermen, the everyday joes, the heros.

One thing that shined through was the mudmotor community. Hundreds took to the water in their mudboats to do what they could to help. Mudboats are commonly used for hunting and built for shallow water areas and they are perfectly suited for floodwater rescue. The mudmotor community helped countless people escape the floodwaters as well as some saving the lives of people who would have surely drowned.

Though we are not out of the woods, I felt it needed to be said how proud I, as well as many others are of all of you. You truly showed everyone our spirit here in Louisiana, a spirit of taking care of our own when things get bad.

Here's to all of you, the mudboat heros!

X2 very well said. Wish I could have been one of the ones helping but was dealing with my own flooding. Makes me happy to say I'm from La where neighbors help neighbors like it should be.

In tears seeing it firsthand, today. I was totally overcome with emotion when I finally got home to see our house high and dry....and not being able to get in touch with my wife to check on her because AT&T was down all day!

Been around floods and earthquakes but nothing near what you guys have seen with your floods. Thanks to all for helping your neighbors.

Be safe in the coming days.

I've seen several articles today highlighting the mud boat army that showed up to help folks, rescue folks, rescue pets, and deliver emergency provisions. You guys down there doing the good work....gents and ladies, y'all are the best examples of what makes flyover America great. Be safe. Continue doing good work. We appreciate you. Prayers for all affected.

David is a friend of mine, and definitely an all around good dude who loves to fish. Not sure if any of you saw the craziness that came out yesterday, but the media is actually reporting now that the car was reported stolen and the woman was plastered when it all went down. Crazy. Still doesn't change that I know if the facts were presented beforehand, he'd still have done whatever it took to help out/save a life. All around great guy-
