Thanks! I’m going to keep us on the good gravel roads and stay off the dirt if we can avoid it.Some of this will be repetitive but here's my experience. I was in southern WY several years ago for an antelope hunt in a nasty snowstorm. We arrived just as the rain turned to ice, that was interesting while pulling a camper. Eventually we made it safely to Medicine Bow and camped in town. The next day we went out to hunt in the snowstorm. My daughter shot her first antelope but it was not the smartest thing I have done. We nearly got stuck many times and had to pull a couple people out. The next day we thought it would be better as some of the snow had melted. Even dumber! We slid down the mud roads cutting ruts and nearly crashing with more than one ranch truck that refused to slow down and just kept hauling azz and sliding past us with mud flying everywhere. The third day we stayed on the hard surfaces and better quality gravel roads. The 4th day it was dried out halfway decent. Point being - WAIT it out. Don't go on the dirt roads until it has a chance to melt and dry out or freeze completely solid which I highly doubt will happen.
