If that's a rental, you can make it with ease.

That's the ranger's Jeep, lemme drive it and I'd treat it like a rental.

Ok, more intel...big washout is on the side trip road to the Barker Ranch ruins.






Edit; Nix that, it's on the main Goler route....good luck, don't force another DV rescue...the tards are making us all look bad.

I really hope the n00bs just stay home this winter.









Seriously, if you don't ride as an A enduro pro rider, please don't go up there.

Looked at a couple vids, it's not as bad as 2005, but it's beyond most around these here parts.

Racetrack is gonna be more than normal, you can handle it, but it's washed out too.

Is this up from Goler Wash?

When I went up Goler Wash with a Jeep, about '05, it was an 8 foot rock step. The bike pics I've seen since are nothing like that.

Yeah Goler, sorry.

Inyo County graded Goler in the fall of 2005, they might do it again, but I'm betting that current budgets won't allow for that to happen until the next fiscal year.
