Joel you are the man! I was super impressed by your welcoming and friendly attitude to @bboyle9 who literally rode into your campsite. You embody the adv spirit and thank you for sharing the Stoke with both of us. We attempted to ride from up Saline to Lippincott / Racetrack but stalled out on South Pass ~5800-6200 ft. It was pretty dang cold up there on the day we went and I think there was an ice sublayer building up on some of the slopes. A number of Toyotas had driven the road but there was little to no mud as it was still largely frozen. We went on NYE or around there. I think it would be passable a couple days after we went and should be passable now. I'd be interested in re-attempting it! As mentioned by @2on2off , the drop from South Pass into Saline is on the north slope so it gets little sun and it felt a bit frozen (at the time we rode).
