    Dear friends,The old DVTalk campsite served us well since 2001. Over time, however, our one-of a-kind, custom programmed message board has become archaic and cumbersome, and it lacks the standard features of other, more contemporary message boards. Therefore, the time has come to move DVTalk to a more modern, better equipped campsite. All visitors wishing to post must register.

In November 2021 We had a few Jeeps on a trip through Titus Canyon ( easy in a Jeep w 4wd, but I saw an unhappy Subaru driver.), then up Cottonwood. Lots of deep sand and whoop de doos, but easy in a lifted Jeep. Then up Warm Springs Rd.
Lower Warm Springs was the worst I had ever seen it due to erosion making some big holes. It was easy with the Jeeps. Once out of the valley floor it got back to normal. I encountered lifted Tayoto Tacos that seemed to be doing fine. also. But I would not go there in a AWD SUV! In the past, there was a hard section between Butte Valley and Carl Mengel's grave/Mengel Pass. The big rocks were still there, but the tight off-camber corner had washed out, making it much easier. Goler Wash was easy. We even had a flock of Big Horn Sheep cross right in front of us!
