Y'all have fun and be safe, watch 949 if you go that way. Last time they had sections of pavement missing coming out of the corners, pretty unnerving.

Oh... I forgot about that. That was sketchy.

3 or 4ft sections of missing concrete, filled in with fine dirt/sand. Some mid-corner, but no sharp corners.

Some were enough to feel like the front-end was plowing sand and loose, others were a dip, and others a bump... all depending on what traffic had done to the dirt/sand and your lane position. Honestly, not an issue at noob pace... but slow down for them.

At 8:15, 16:18, and 16:26 you can see some of them... well marked, but keep an eye out. Probably 5 or 6 total spread out... but that was 8.18.13 too.

is this at all worthy of suiting up for?
