Comments
Comments: Microspikes came in handy on final approach to Osceola and from Osceola to the col between peaks. However if you used caution you could bareboot. Everything is melting pretty fast and the rotting monorail/spine is never more than a couple of feet deep in a few spots.



Tripoli road is open but has some pretty big bumps, one in particular could do some damage to cars with low clearence. It's marked off with florecent pink markings to help see, looks like they'll be ripping it up and fixing soon.
