With the light rains that occurred recently in the southern part of the state, it appeared muddy approximately 48 hours after the rain had stopped. Another 24 hours later and it was fine. Would estimate wet precipitation in light amounts around the area to take at least 3 days to dry out provided the canyon gets as much sunshine as possible with clear skies.

Hardpan is in great shape for this weekend’s fly-in!

@Charles - my understanding is that the connection between the windsock frame and pole broke. Josh/Roy/Steve are working on getting it fixed.

It's gnat season out on the island! Would recommend you bring bug spray or enjoy the island when there's a solid 10 mph wind reported.

Airstrip is in great condition! Eastern end of runway is a little softer than the west end (as usual) and some two inch depressions make it a little more rough than the west end. Brush alongside the runway (pictured below) May encroach upon low wing type airplanes landing here but this vegetation appears to be quite sparse.

Airstrip is in GREAT condition. The ancillary (read: illegal) airstrips seem to have been getting use. Image below helps depict where the approved runway is on the top of the island. It should be very clear to a pilot which runway is the approved one, as it is the one that runs roughly 150º/330º, and is the road that runs the ridge from the weather station to the hill with the parking area on top. The airstrip that runs from the parking area to the northwest is a) not an approved airstrip and b) should not be used. Tracks on this illegal runway appear to be fresh, and used many times, with one deep cut in the west end of the runway where someone obviously turned around. Please do not use any airstrips besides this one and the lower strip as their usage may put future access in jeopardy, and be subject to law enforcement action. If anyone has any questions as to what airstrips are authorized I urge you to contact the UBCP prior to flight.

Beautiful day out on the island. Sight wind 5-10 out of the northwest kept any bugs at bay. Recommend we all start using the same parking areas. Either atop the hill or just west of the ramp up. Saw two other airplanes out on the island today!

Runway is in great shape! Will update airstrip data with recently surveyed lengths tonight. Recommend you park on the south side of runway just be careful as halfway down the runway are a few railroad ties hidden in the brush.

Great as always! One of the signs (the one on the west end of the road) is missing. Not sure if we should replaced it or not as the sign on the east side is in good condition.

Runway is merely a two-track road that is unfortunately not straight, not level, and not smooth. Would require some work in order to make the airstrip more suitable.

Runway could use some minor work (a few bumps here and there, just a few weeds...not too bad). Crosswind runway could use some major work. Will add to our spring airstrip cleanup schedule.

Overflew airstrip. Appears to be in good condition. No major ruts or rocks on landing surface.

Airstrip is in good condition. Be weary of bushes with semi-flexible thorns near the intersections of the two runways. Runway surface hard packed and smooth for a majority of the usable length on both runways.

Overflew airstrip. Appears to be in good condition. No major ruts or rocks on landing surface. Still working on the legalities of the airstrip.

Runway appeared wet. More muddy to the east end of the landing surface.

Airstrip was found to wet and muddy on the eastern half. Western half (approx 700 feet) dry. Suggest that the airstrip not be used for the time being as to avoid putting ruts into the landing surface.
