That can be done with a mid-size sedan, 2wd. "Doc, it's nothing but a scratch".

I can't believe I ever rode a motorcycle for 10 years. The older I get the pussier I get. Can't I just park it and portage?

Ygmir I'm sad for you. :cry: Your gate and driveway blocked. 'Your' road beyond repair. Your friends wishing they could come play with you in the mountains. Sucky all around.

Indeed Ratty, indeed!!
Marty and I made it up there today. The main road it out of service and according to the utility guy we ran into there, no estimated time of repair.
We went in a complicated, circuitous alternate route, that unless you've been there before, would be very difficult to navigate. Add to that, this route is very rough, worse than the "regular" way in, longer, and all.
I got the tree chainsawed off the gate....so yay that. The gate withstood the tree pretty well, and it still functional, if not quite as straight.
The entrance to the driveway from the main road suffered pretty severe erosion, as did the approach.
With all this, I'm going to suggest we call off/delay said party until a passable route can be established.
I hate, hate doing this, but getting in there will take a very good 4x4, and good offroad skills. Add to that how much longer and more complicated it is, and it just seems most folks rigs won't make it.
I wanted to see for myself, though suspected this to be true.
And, wanted to make the call as soon as possible, so folks can make alternate plans.
I'm so, so sorry, to everyone.....I hate this (did I say that?), but yeah, at least for now it's just too difficult to get there for most, IMHO. And, it's probably not going to get better until the main route in is fixed......this back road will go to hell in no time, with too much use.

again, I'm so sorry.

Shucks, golly and darn, Ygmir.
It's a magical place. Cathy was even looking forward to tenting for the first time in forever!
Is there a Plan B? If not and since we have the weekend free, we're going to head down to Centerville Flat (which is now open), six miles S. Of Markleeville and do some camping/fishing/burning. Everone would be welcome.

Possible upside -- for me.... I couldn't make it next weekend at all, but might be able to make it an other time.

As for coldness of the lake; I swam in it last year and it was OK for maybe ten minutes at the time. Then warm up on the rocks, and do it again. (I love to swim. Best exercise in the world.)

Same here... I'll be back in the states at some point in July, and much closer to the Hof, relatively speaking.
