Common sense isn't.
There are at least three routes to the windmill wind power plant site. The conditions have varied a lot with weather and time. After road improvements for bringing in more windmills, the roads are improved, but after neglect for a while, the roads can be treacherous. After rain or snow, the roads can be muddy and slippery. You've been warned. Be very careful. I'd generally suggest taking a truck, but you might be able to get away with an average road car, depending on conditions and tolerance for abuse such as dragging bottom and slipping and sliding (or getting stuck). I'd suggest a 4-wheel truck to be safe, but check for yourself.
Thanks to the Windrock ATV Club, however, I now know a third route, which only goes part way to the windmills before it joins the "shorter" route. The third route passes close by several active gas wells.
One great improvement by the Windrock ATV Club (and/or Coal Creek Mining Company) is the signs marking roads and trails. Although not every intersection was marked, most were. Using Tommy Rhea's map and the road signs made it much easier to find the way.
|Quote of the moment|
|... [Washington] is always an entertaining spectacle. Look at it now. The present President has the name of Roosevelt, marked facial resemblance to Wilson, and no perceptible aversion, to say the least, to many of the policies of Bryan. The New Deal, which at times seems more like a pack of cards thrown helter skelter, some face up, some face down, and then snatched in a free-for-all by the players, than it does like a regular deal, is going on before our interested, if puzzled eyes.|
|~ Alice Roosevelt Longworth (18841980), U.S. socialite; daughter and cousin of U.S. Presidents. Crowded Hours, ch. 21 (1933). |
Longworths distant cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945), was beginning the first of his three-plus terms as President. New Deal was his label for his domestic reform program. ~
