Discussions on mud and various mud patterns

So I guess I get to be first to post here. I prefer a nice high speed splatter pattern up the back of the front wings and down the doors in a nice arc. The Alaska volcanic mud provides a particularly cool color combination on AA yellow paint. So what do you guys prefer when it comes to auto-terra-firma finishes?

At this time of year I like the 'just driven through a 10' snow bank' look!

I like the "mud everywhere" look... like the random chunks on the windshield, the mud that makes it to the roof.. I'm not such a fan of the 'interior' mud that ive had many of times.. you know, when the steering wheel is brown, the 'o shit handle' is covered in mud, and the radio controls have mud on them..

I prefer the muddy water high speed run look. Where you have to get up on the rear ladder and look at the roof to diagnose the original paint color.

i perfer the oklahoma red clay buildup with a light spray of dark brown farm mud just up the sides, so much so that if properly removed makes a perfect cast of the rover

I like the "Oh $#&%, I forgot to close my moon roof" look, you know, when you find all sorts of random mud chunks on your interior because you forgot your moon roof was open It's happened to me a lot. As far as mud goes, I really miss my former New England dark farming soil mud, that stuff is great, I've had chunks of sod on my roof and hood, that's what I like, this N Carolina red clay is terrible, it's like driving on ice with trees everywhere!

I like the "Dude I can't see out my moonroof!" look, any of the three in my case

Thought I'd throw a new rig into the mix...
