Big South road may open Friday

Just got off the phone with Forest Service... The Long Draw road is currently closed they said there is a good chance the road will open Friday. No guarantees at this time, but at least we're getting closer..

just got off the phone with the FS:

"99% chance the gate will open tomorrow"

no guarantees, but it's looking good. she indicated the gate probably won't open tonight though.

i think i'm gonna take my chances, see yall up there.

Bryan: Great news about the gate likely opening tomorrow!

Gordon: Was up there earlier today and the gate was still closed. The level was medium-low.

update 2:40 pm:

gate is still closed. rangers are up there right now evaluating the conditions at the campsites. if no mud, then they will open the gate. they close at 5 so i'll call once more later and post an update if there is one. sucks that they're doing this on a friday afternoon.
