Build a vehicle to traverse a marsh-like environment.(Mud reeds, small amount of open water, etc.) Some candidates would be hovercraft,fan boats (like those used in the Florida everglades).

John, those Floridian fan boats are called "air boats", and I think they would be a great challenge for JYW. Most are powered by huge unmuffled V-8 engines, which makes for an overwhelming amout of noise when they spin a big prop. also, with all that power, they don't even need water! The hulls are flat and keelless, so you can run them right across land like it wasn't there. Wa-HOOOOOOO!
