Lee - Yep. Been here for 3 years now. Had to dry out after living in Seattle most of my life.

Which has been hard this last week because of the rain....

Good for the wild flowers though.

David - Road-wise high clearance is really more important than 4WD, although I have never used the road without being in 4-Hi. Of course I use 4-Hi as simply a precaution and as a way to give the transfer box and front axles a workout after having been sitting idle for weeks on end. Driving there I have never really hit anything that bad. In fact my Jeep is low-end stock. The small tires, no lockers, standard 2.5L engine, etc. Never had a problem. Most trucks could probably do fine out there.

I alos have room in my Jeep for a couple of people. Sort of depends on the gear they bring. If one passanger has a 7x20 Corona with tripod and 20 holders, then it gets a bit tight....
