Ascent Trip Reportthe road was too muddy in the early morning for my 4wd car: i would have probably been OK had i gotten a later start on this sunny day. when i tried to back down the road i ended up sliding into the ditch... i proceeded to call 8 tow companies, none of whom would consider a dirt road, especially when i mentioned mud.
the fellow who lives in the trailer at the end of the gravel had the best tip though: "call pope valley towing".
huge thanks to jeff @ pope valley towing (707) 965-2302. he has built a tow truck out of a raised ford ranger with big tires, and no fear of mud, and he's familiar with rieff road.
