Runway was dry and in good shape today.

Over flew the strip during our survey flight with one of the Price District rec planners. The strip looks like it's in great shape.

Landed 20 on Saturday morning. Just a little soft but nothing to worry about. Condition is good with no ruts or major damage along most of the RWY. The first 500' from the 20 end is pretty grown over. I walked the length of runway with my GPS and I suggest that 2500' of the RWY is very good. Narrow with soft edges so not a lot of room for error on landing or t/o.

As part of our trip to recon the strips in the Price District, Roy and I stopped here to check out the condition on our way to a meeting with the BLM. The strip was in great shape. Firm and smooth.
