Black Rock Desert, NV Soldiers Meadow Road (0171)

Black Rock Desert, NV Soldiers Meadow Road (0171)
Deceivingly smooth.... I was taking Soldiers Meadow Road to get to a remote campground at a ranch. It would have been a beautiful drive, but there stretches of washboard that were so deep that I could do no more than 5MPH. I gave up and headed back to Gerlach.

Sounds like you need to upgrade your car! ;) Seriously, you don't need to take the Soldier Meadows road when the playa is dry--everyone just takes the playa road.

The opposite, because its a newer car, I didn't want to beat it up too quickly. I've handled washboard many times, this was much rougher than I've experienced.

Didn't even think about taking the playa as an alternative.
