    Steve and I were in there a week and a half ago. Road is a bit rutted and there's a few sinkholes near the culverts. Overall it's in decent shape. I think you drive almost anything in there with...

    I think we ran into you guys as we were heading over to N Crocker. Either that or several groups took a similar detour via the boundary swath. We got back to the car with just some light showers. ☔️
