Hi Wes,
by: Katrin

I haven't heard yet that someone has driven through it this season, i have heard that the rivers are still up and conditions are obviously rough as expected in the early season, but things change quickly this time of the year and from now to 1. July a lot has changed.

Generally in July your chances are obviously a lot better than now, HOWEVER - all track conditions are mostly affected by recent rains (only days/weeks before you go) and i cannot predict what the weather will be like the days before you go.

It's too early for you to check the conditions now, start asking around a week or two before you go and you get a lot better answers.

There is a big washout on the exit from the Pascoe, without some major track building it won’t be passable
