Additional Information:

Hello everyone here is a current updated road report. Most roads are in decent condition and passable due to the lack of moisture. However caution should be exercised when driving most roads due to heavy washboarding and extra traffic due to spring breaks starting here in March.

As always, PLAN AHEAD, BE PREPARED, AND BE SAFE!
