Southernmost part of runway looks deceptively good. There are a couple of areas where the runway has been undermined and collapsed. Could cause some damage to a nose gear. Northern 3/4 of the runway is in great shape. Runway is dry everywhere, but it is obvious that both it and especially the parking area on the east about midfield has been recently very wet.

Between the cow tracks, vehicle ruts, and very small water drainages developing, this place isn't as good as it could be. Still very manageable for anything with bigger than 5.00-6's and wheel pants. Lots of grass growing up beside the airstrip. Nice to see.

DId not land....north end looked a little damp but rest appeared to be dry. Did not attempt a closer inspection due to the number of people around the strip on foot.
