the deed is done and we had a great ride. The road is in excellent condition. No ruts or bad spots at all. I think the rain was just enough to keep the dust down. and while it certainly would fun in that monster, I think a regular Miata would get the job done










BUT NO ONE WARNED ME ABOUT THIS LITTLE ROAD HAZARD!!!!!




j/k was a great ride. thanks for the information

I was on it yesterday. I timed it to be at the rim section right at sunset (that was just plain magical). It was awesome. The trail or road is currently perfect but watch out for elk. They are everywhere and don't exactly rush to get out of your way.

Great to hear the road has been fixed up. How much did you ride - from where to where?

We got on just past Hebert and got off at 87. Maybe 40 miles??? Was a nice ride except for the cows

I should buy eakins' map. Right now I am just looking at the DeLorme atlas.
I have been going past there in February or March the past couple years on the way to Tucson. Looks like a great area if you can hit it before the snow.

Thanks, but then I would have to buy a gps. Been pretty much self-sufficient on the maps so far.

...and while I am conversing with someone from Lake Havasu, would you happen to have room for me to stash a truck and trailer for a week next March? Tenatively planning a SoCal trip. Maybe north up to Death Valley and south to the border.
