It's called muddin' not mud-riding.I'm from TH, 6th generation born there, and I left for college in '95. I've lived around central Illinois since then in towns around the same size as TH and it's not that different from any medium sized town in the midwest. Some places you eat a cheese toastie instead of a grilled cheese.Fat shirtless men riding scooters? Got them here too. Assholes driving big trucks? Illinois has plenty. People who think driving 45 minutes is too far? Everywhere. Stupid comments on newspaper and tv news station Facebook pages? Ever read the NYTimes comments? Not too many towns have anything like Deming Park.
