We're heading to Barker Ranch, Mengel Pass, Geologist's, and Stella's via Ballarat the weekend of March 12-15. If anyone has been through good 'ol Goler Wash since the big rains, we'd appreciate a trip report/road conditions. Most of our small group is 4X4 high clearance & short wheel base, but we may have one truck, 2WD F-250 w/locker.

We've been through there after it has been graded and filled with sand, and almost any decent rig could get through, but we've also been there when we needed to winch up a few trucks that couldn't make it, and noticed oil-pan drops from previous groups on that one spot in the middle of Goler that can make it rough of novice 'wheelers'. We're assuming that the rains have washed out any grading sand, and that the roads won't be improved before we get there due to the ongoing rains.

Thanks in advance for all the good knowledge you locals put out there for us. It makes a big difference in our trip planning when we drive in from 3 hours away. Kudos to you guys, we REALLY appreciate it. Cheers!

(ps, we'll keep an eye out for the Ballarat Bandito)
