Dirt Updates – 2017

 

I am planning to drive the back roads again during the late spring and summer of 2017. I will be updating the guide for road closures and other minor tweaks as needed. For the convenience of those who have purchased the second edition, print version of Dirt, these updates will be listed here as they become available.


 

Online Version last updated:

05/09/2017

The complete 2nd Edition of Dirt has been uploaded to the website. Google Map GPS has been added for basic beginning and ending locations.

Opposing maps for trip S9T6 (page-135) and trip S9T7 (page-136) should be switched around in the print version.


 

2017 Drives last updated on: 07/05/2017

 

Section One: All trips in Section-1 have been re-driven and there are no closed roads or major changes to report. Some individual tweaks are listed below.

Trip-1: The entire trip is now paved (W-213) and the starting route has been adjusted.

Trip-6 and Trip-7: Opposing maps for trip S1T6 (page-22) and trip S1T7 (page-23) should be switched around in the print version.

 

Section Two: All trips in Section-2 have been re-driven with no closed roads or major changes to report. Some individual tweaks are listed below.

Correction on Trip-3: The fourth sentence in the second to last paragraph should read: "Here you can take the Marshal Road east and then south for six miles to Rock Creek."

Correction on Trip-4: The total miles for the trip, as shown on the map, should be 83 miles instead of 74 miles.

 

Section Eleven: All trips in Section-11 have been re-driven with no closed roads or major changes to report. Some individual tweaks are listed below.

Trip-1: Confirmed no access to W-387.

Trip-3: New bridge over North Platte River, therefore there is a new starting point with an extension of W-95 on west side of Glenrock.

 

Section Twelve: All trips in Section-12 have been re-driven with two closed roads (see below for NF-843 in Trip-12 and Trip-13; the Moskee Road in Trip-15). Some individual tweaks are listed below.

Trip-3, Trip-4 and Trip-5: I am in the process of creating a new, additional map insert to clarify the array of junctions and options available where these trips intersect.

Trip-12: Road NF-838 going north from NF-843 is closed.

Trip-13: Road NF-838 is closed between it's junction with NF-832 and the junction with NF-843.

Trip-15: The Moskee/Cold Creek Road south is now closed to the public.

Trip-17: The fifth sentence in the second to last paragraph should read: "... (26 miles from Oshoto)."

Trip-18: The second sentence in the last paragraph should read: "... four miles further you come to a junction with W-112 at mile #28."
