Still rutted and previous reports are still accurate. Not the best looking strip but the Factory Butte area is amazing and worth some low, slow, exploring.
Soft. The ruts from last year are mostly gone. Probably a big tire place.
This is a pretty cool strip to check out if you haven’t done so already. The strip itself consisted of soft loose dirt, fossilized sea shells, and of course the selenite crystals. The previous reports still stand. There are ruts in the western end of the main runway and major water runoff on the eastern end. The crosswind runway has some deep depressions where water has pooled and should be noted if attempting to use. Its also worth noting, the main runway was pretty soft and I would highly recommend high float or tundra tires if landing here.
Looks like a vehicle was stuck and left ruts on the main runway. Runway is still landable, but the ruts will need some attention. Crosswind runway has several washes from recent rains that make it almost unusable. This area is seeing a huge increase in UTV traffic.
Neato spot, good for windy days. Can be soft here, but was pretty firm today.
