And a question about that. When I was there before it closed, we walked arround a lot and there are plenty of places to land other than the stip. Is that OK

They have Fred's Diner right there off from the field at Bedrock City. How cool is that!!!? This should be more fun that I thought it'd be. Fred Flinstone's my hero.
Looks like we will be camping at Grand Gulch and Pierce Ferry. Anyone ever been to an airstrip called Tassi (9.5 miles NNE of Pierce)? On Google it shows there is some spring or springs nearby. I might go check it out (not necessarily for the springs, just because it's there).
Thanks for your help in planning this trip.
One more thing: Any good UFO stories to keep me up at night out there in the desert?
