Default how's the wegc Creek lately?

The AC in my bronco doesn't work, so I'm going to try the kia again.

Anyone seen getting stuck in the creek lately?

When the creek was bad it was flowing 20cfs. It is now 2cfs. The range guys are always out there smooting the crossing. I make it no problem in my old "mini" truck.

Just drop your gears to low and you should be fine. The flows are very low now.

The creekbed is actually beautifully "manicured"... the trip across was smoother than a lot of freeways and streets in this part of town.

Kia made it with no problem.

Thanks, all!

Were you there today? I shot pistols until about 10. Didn't bring any long guns.

I was there on the 30th. Arrived slightly before you left, on the rifle side.

It was a beautiful day. Bet it warmed up though.

How did it go crossing the creek? It still feels a little squirrelly, like the rock is still loose.

I made it easily in a Kia Soul. No complaints.

If you happen to see me there (Bright red Kia, giant White husband, normal-sized Black wife) feel free to say hi!

I crossed it yesterday in a Prius C. Scraped bottom almost the entire passage but hey...4" of ground clearance!! Go figure. No barnacles on the bottom now.
