1 month ago in a RV-8 with 5.00-5 with Wheel Pants tires
Runway is in decent shape. There were a few ruts and cow footprints up to about an inch in depth at spots. It's a little soft from recent moisture, especially on the ends. My 5.00-5's left some light indentations but it was no problem even with wheel pants on. If possible, recommend avoiding this strip for another few days until it dries out completely. What a great spot!

First ~500' of R33 is a bit muddy with some snow yet to melt; middle and NW parts have dried. Cattle footprints have caused widespread ~2” holes and bumps along R33 to the parking area, not an issue for my 850s, just not as smooth as it was in the fall.
