Weather reports are looking too good to pass up this weekend, so I think I am going to make my innaugral trip for the 2014 season. Just looking to get a heads up on road conditions for the southern region. Driskell posted that he hear bald rock rd was in rough shape, just looking for someone to elaborate. How bad is the Lode hill?

The ground is saturated so dirt and gravel roads will have soft spots. There's a lot of mud if you get off travelled surfaces. Haven't been down the Lode hill in a few weeks (since the first round of snow). Others probably have better first hand knowledge.

With all the run off of snow and what not the Lode hill will be very wet and sloppy if you have 4WD you should be fine but with front or rear wheel it might be pretty tough to get out.
What would crush with Arnold's tank?

FYI some Forest Service gravel roads are also closed - http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/dbnf/aler ... ?aid=21513. You will need to call the Gladie Center to find out the current road closures.
