    Who said anything about them not riding in a rearward facing car seat? My kids loved that and they got the best view. No top looking backwards with unobstructed view. While they maybe fragile in some ways they certainly aren't made of glass. Kids use to be popped out on dirt floors with very little sterilization, moved from one side of the country to the other at all ages by wagon train, horse back, or by? I know we have come a long way since then but it's a testament to how strong babies really are.

    Anyone else remember station wagons with the rear facing seat? That was where we fought to sit!

    Or while traveling just spread the blankets on the floor with the seats folded down?

    Yes! Many of us could be one of those babies, I was one of them (or all all of them). But my dad never drove us into a mud pit. Granted, there may be even bigger risks on the open highway. But looking at the number of vehicles and idiots on the road now days compared to 'back then'...

    Back when I was growing up in Florida one of our most popular spots was a huge mud/lake area off a power line access road. The cops sometimes came out when things got out of hand but in Florida it was never illegal to be out there. If its deep enough to play in go get dirty.

    Also with Jackie's comment about the car seat I agree and disagree. Here in Colorado I would NOT take my little girl out crawling until she was in a full seat. Also when aproching any obstical that even closely came to a point that my rig would even be a little tipsy I would remove all children from the rig before I attempted the obstical. However in Florida, we didn't have rocks or much at all that would have rolled a rig. I doubt I would have even considered my children being at any kind of risk while romping around in a mud pit. However knowing about being stuck in mud pits many many times in my lifetime I have seen some really bad things happen. Once I had decided to give up and look for assistance. All occupants would have been removed from my rig.

    I've seen stuck trucks catch on fire, sink, and even have windows and body panels seriously damaged during removal of mud pits. My family would have been drinking water and eating sandwiches sitting on the sidelines before I made that shameful walk to ask for assistance.
