Golden WW Park

I see the gauge is finally nearing 200.... When will it become worth the drive?

Where are you driving from? The distance of drive is inversely proportional to the flows required to make the park "worth" the drive. So, if you're in the Metro area and you want to play, then it is worth the drive now. If you're on the western slope, it's not really ever worth the drive if you're coming for the sole purpose of playing in the WW park.

Hmm... was that ambiguous enough?

Also, how fuel efficient is your car? What time of day will you be driving there? What kind of tricks will you be trying to perform? Will you be coming on a warm day when there will be a number of redneck teenagers in bikinis, or a cold rainy day with only a dirty guy in a van down by the river?

All important factors in the "worth" equation.

Worth the drive

If you've got some extra beer, it is definitely worth the drive right now.
