    Exclamation Bodie Trip

    I will be visiting Bodie next week and am wondering if this route is possible in a 4 door sedan. CA-182 > Masonic Road > Chumung Mine > Bodie Masonic Road > Bodie > Bodie Road > CA-395.
    THANKS

    I responded to this on your other post, but I'll elaborate here again. It's doable, but conditions can change in an instant and you need to be prepared. A high clearance vehicle, and 4 wheel drive are safer for this reason. You are also in the backcountry, away from services, and need to be prepared to take care of yourself if something happens. Cell phones don't always work , and you may not run into another traveller. It's a long walk (miles) back to Bridgeport or Bodie.

    Bodie was great! It was well worth the 2 1/2 hour drive from our cabin in Strawberry. Next year I will rent a jeep and visit all the other ghost towns near Bodie!
