When landing, I was hit with gust, probably 25-30 KTS of crosswind. I was unable to control with aileron and rudder. I ended up off runway to side in mud. Since I knew of gusty conditions, the only ways of avoiding the incident would have been: 1) delay trip, 2) fly low-wing aircraft, 3) perform the landing at a higher airspeed and with less flaps (I had full flaps).

Title: RWY EXCURSION DUE XWIND, STUCK IN MUD.
Narrative: WHEN LNDG, I WAS HIT WITH GUST, PROBABLY 25-30 KTS OF XWIND. I WAS UNABLE TO CTL WITH AILERON AND RUDDER. I ENDED UP OFF RWY TO SIDE IN MUD. SINCE I KNEW OF GUSTY CONDITIONS, THE ONLY WAYS OF AVOIDING THE INCIDENT WOULD HAVE BEEN: 1) DELAY TRIP, 2) FLY LOW-WING ACFT, 3) PERFORM THE LNDG AT A HIGHER AIRSPD AND WITH LESS FLAPS (I HAD FULL FLAPS).
