The other day I tried to visit someone in Lake Mead City and after 20+ minutes of trying to get to Lucky & Tamarisk from Apple I gave up.  At one point I tried all 3 roads at an intersection, but ended up going back to where I came from.  Crazy …  I have a truck, but 2WD and I would have gotten stuck for sure.  In some places I saw the tracks of others who got stuck.

So I decided to mark the really bad roads in Unit 7 and I’d like to do a map for Lake Mead City too, but I can’t remember all the roads that sucked so bad.

The GREEN GOOD ROADS are “relatively” good.  You still may have to slow down occasionally.   Charles gets pretty bad towards the end and I haven’t been on Cholla in years.   The unmarked roads are “ok” — no major washouts — as far as I know.  I just really hate the sand.  You can’t tell how deep it is and I never want to have to shovel for an hour to get my truck out of the sand again.

Obviously this map is only good until it rains again! 

Please let me know if I missed any major problem areas and if you can help me out with a map for LMC.
