I just got back from a trip, too.

We ran Pleasant Canyon up to Roger's Pass. The stock rigs had some problems with the waterfalls/creekbed on the climb, but no one got truly stuck. Once at the Pass we had planned on continuing over to South Park to see the slide, but time was getting short, and since we had 17 rigs, and the stock ones might have had a tough time in the boggy meadow, we returned.

Next day ran Titus Canyon and on to the Racetrack, what a sight seeing the playa full of water! I don't expect to see that again soon!

Then the drive over Lippencott, which was quite easy; my first time ever over it I had butterflies, but this time was a blast, it was the most fun road of the trip; in decent shape, too, only a couple of areas that may syffer some serious erosion the next heavy rain (whenever that will be!).

Spent the night in Saline Valley at the hot springs; only 5 of our group elected to stay, the rest left via South Pass. Hey, who was it that set off a stick of dynamite in the valley Sunday evening??!!! Damn loud!!!!!

Out the next day over Steel Pass and past the Eureka Dunes....no major problems to be found, just a great trip!
