Landed this morning. Justin had just graded and the runway was really good. No ruts or washout.

Winter repairs have been made. Surface is rough graded, some stones persist until surface can be heavy rolled in the coming weeks. Safe for operations.

UT91 Mackie Ranch in southern Utah isnt safely usable at this time. It will clean up in a good weekend of work but it wont likely be dry enough until late April to get in and fix it. We stuck in this morning with the help of an overnight freeze to firm up the mud. Friends of Mackie Ranch Airfield - UT91

As a new member of UBCP and my first report, the airstrip was very good. Perhaps a little soft with the recent grading. Thanks you for the grading. The windsock was good to have with the crosswinds. This was our first off airport landing with the Kodiak. A big Thank You for allowing us to visit from Cedar City.
