Plaskett Ridge Rd. is now virtually impassable, and should be closed to the public, until we get a week of sunshine. Rock Knocker (with 30 years experience on Cal-Trans mudslides, and slippery roads) got stuck yesterday. On the way up this afternoon, the slippery clay caused me to slide into a ditch the depth of about 1/2 the circumference of my tire today, and the ONLY reason I got out is my 5.2 liter Jeep, 4×4, good tires, and 15 years experience on this road, and even so, it was quite “iffy.” I was shaking so badly by the time I got out of the trees to the top, I had to stop.
This is the price I pay for living “On Top o’ the World.”
