While descending the Lippencott in the early morning of July 5, 1998, Ranger Dan in the old NPS Hummer blew my doors in! I could keep up only briefly, but he seemed to be driving it like it was his morning commute! However, this was only day's after someone ran a blade over it... I later caught up with him on the Saline Valley Road -- parked on the side of the road with a flat tire!
Despite opinions to the contrary, Ranger Dan confirmed with me that his Hummer had easily traverse each and every foot of DVNP's backcountry roads, even the occasional tight squeezes.
