FYI
The Dugway was cut for uranium trucks in the 50s. I was told it was not paved because it does not met minimum highway standards for width, grade, etc.

Yes, and I kind of doubt that they'd ever be able to meet standards short of blowing up half the mountain and starting from scratch. Personally, I'd just as soon that the leave it just the way it is.

BTW, did you drive the Valley of the Gods road? Its ending (or start) is just just a mile or two before the bottom of Mokey Dugway. Beautiful drive!

Yes, we were offered a 'slimp' wheel which was more like a giant caster. The 'dolly' was less expensive but prevented the ability to back up. There was one time that that became a BIG problem. That is another story for another thread.

Neither car would have had the 'umph' to tow that 40' New Moon for any distance which was built as a 'park model' trailer.

On the Back Roads

Here are a couple from Texas.
1) Road side rest area on the back roads. These little rest stops are disappearing fast. No restrooms or vending machines, just a little shade and a picnic table or two. Perfect for the Airstream!
2) Crossing the little bridge into Blanco State Park. This is a small little park and is absolutely immaculate! Kudos to the hosts and Rangers.
