As we entered the park the Ranger said it was another 41 miles at 45 mph per hour. By then we were ready for a cocktail. We drove through the park and just 8 miles south of Flagg Ranch we came across construction that was not mentioned. It was SIX miles of dirt road and pilot cars culminated by a bridge crossing where the lane was narrowed to under 10'. Our toad (white truck) was not distinguishable when we arrived in the campground. The off ice personnel had gone to dinner and we had to hunt around for someone to figure out what site we were in. It was just one of those days. A large glass of V.O. / 7 Up and the fact that I got the satellite to lock on made it all better.
If it wasn't for bad luck you wouldn't have any luck at all. I can certainly relate to the vo and 7 or 2 or 3. We almost took 22, it was a little shorter but a local guy said 26 was a much easier drive.
Bet you're glad that is behind you.
