Please tell me there were at least a few pictures taken at the event. I know Lee took a picture that summed up the event perfectly. I'm really hoping there is at least one in car video of mudocalypse 2015. I've seen some facebook posts and what not but would like to see what everyone has.

What did everyone do with the mud they hauled home?

That's half a joke question, half serious. Seems to me like taking the car to a self serve car wash you'd just clog up their drain (or water recyling which I think they do?) and go broke feeding in coins. I've tried cleaning the car in the street with my own pressure washer but then it becomes a question of what to do with the mud in the street or how to deal with all your angry neighbors.

Curious to hear if anybody has a good approach.

I went to a self-serve car wash, and think I spent maybe $20 for 40 minutes of washing. At home I sprayed most of the mud from my driveway into a pile, which I think is almost dry finally. Planning to shovel it all into a wheelbarrow and dump it in the backyard.

Everyone downstream does have a fair amount of dirt in front of their driveway. Sorry neighbors!

After Kevin thoroughly cleaned the accessible area of the Impreza, I was still able to remove a pretty substantial pile of mud from the car while I had the car on jackstands with no tires. I just went to town with a screwdriver, pry bar, and soft-faced hammer (not caring about paint helps).

Doing this onsite would help.

I threw the mud into the trash and felt guilty for wasting landfill space. I wonder if throwing it into the Phoenix desert might be worse though (from introducing different fungal cultures or something).
