Naukati Mud Boggs Offer Alaskan 4WD Adventure

Drew Richter driving Slayer

From its humble origins as part of a community Skunk cabbage festival, the Naukati Mud Bogg races have grown into the largest off-road event in Southeast Alaska.

The races present driver-modified rigs competing in two feet of Alaska mud. Some of these trucks are hand-built from their frames to their engines; but with five racing categories, from custom to street jobs, anyone can join. Located on remote Prince of Wales island, home of the world's greatest salmon fishing, the event is in its seventh year. The 2007 races start May 13 and run to September 2; there's room to park an RV, sleep in your boat, or rent a cabin.

Race entry fee is $30 for drivers, $10 for viewers; ferry or float plane access for most is Ketchikan, Alaska. Each of the eight races draw hundreds of locals and visitors. Contact Andrew Richter for more information. Phone (907) 629-4104 or email
