Two crossing strips.  Overgrown.  Could be a candidate for rehab and a windsock.

The wind was just right today. I was able to land on the closest circle to the intersection; see last report. According to OnX it appears to be roughly 300 feet +/- usable. I don't recommend landing here unless you have 31's or 35's.... ditches and overgrowth if your roll is long. Needs some major work. Appears to have other STOL spots around it, but they are not on the actual strip.

Almost all of both runways look unusable, unless you like to rodeo. I tried to land on the two spots circled in one of the pictures, but could never get slow enough today. Very doable for STOL capable cubs with big tires, I just didn't have it today. I'm guessing both spots were about 250 to 300 feet each, maybe a little more or less. I rolled them several times in all directions and couldn't make it happen. I'll be back. This spot needs some work.

Low pass only to asses condition. Both runways obvious once close. Probably doable with a cub type and 31+ tires. Tall brush and plants look to be the major hazards.
