Too bad Mac, I was looking forward on meeting you in the flesh. Hope you recover soon.
This may impact the route:
Check out the morning report for Lippencott Mine Road:
Current Road Conditions
Keane Wonder Road ....CLOSED; road and mining area closed to ALL entry due to mine-safety hazards Hunter Mtn. Rd. ............4x4 REQUIRED. Chains may be needed.
Saline Valley (North) .......4x4 high-clearance required.
Saline Valley (South).......Signed CLOSED by Inyo County
Lippincott Rd ................One partial wash out, above lower hairpin curve. Short wheel base vehicles only.
All other roads open and in standard condition.
Thats a tough curve for our big rigs when its in a "normal" condition. I think it takes this route out of the equation. We can check in Furnace Creek, but the Rangers are "overly cautious" and will no doubt say not to attempt it. This news will make my wife Dina very happy.
