In what respect Evan?

They are fairly good gravel, rural paved.

Experience in the area would suggest that there will be some potholes. I am hoping that snow and ice will fill them, but that's a hope.

There is nothing that I would term a "goat-path".

Ok. Same area as last time we started in Elmsdale? Those were pretty good. Except for the guy cleaning a deer.

We've taken my Civic last 3 years. Lots of other equally new/nicer cars. If you have snows and aren't afraid to get a bit dirty (depending on if ground is frozen or not) you should be fine

We did some route checking and other surveying this morning.

Bit of powder down, decent road condition.

We are watching the weather.

Our resident Meteorologist feels that we should be in acceptable shape, and the roads should be freshly plowed.

Snow tires, correct tire pressures, and a shovel in the trunk should be standard equipment.

I should probably be randomly inserted into this list, unless a newbie TSD driver makes us novice.

Very sorry Brent! In my haste I think I had you mentally on the left side of the car, and was going to give your navigator a break.

#5 it is!
