Here's an update on the route to the old stagecoach station site.

The creek is bone dry but very sandy. You also don't have to worry about getting any pin-striping along your vehicle through there anymore. All the thick vegetation along the sides have been cut and cleared out. At the historic site itself, it looks as if there might be some reconstruction going on or they're just marking the location of the station with bricks.

I read there was a caretaker / manager of this stage station stage many hundreds of years ago, who murdered his common law Native American wife. He then disappeared, some say avenged by her relatives, others say he fled east.
By the way, where does the bombing range begin? Is it enforced, or can you drive out to Plaster City?

The drive thru Carrizo is fenced and marked, you cannot (legally) drive thru it. You can drive out to Plaster City though on the old highway and take EC805(?) the BLM dirt road all the way to Split Mountain. It is all marked well enough to make it clear where you are allowed or not and rangers do patrol on occasion.

I have not heard about the caretakers story, only the one of Joe Fox in Lester Reed's book...anybody know more about the caretaker story?

Any map these days shows the CIA boundaries, they are fairly accurate and yes the area is patrolled by vehicle and airplane.

This map has the outline for the CIA http://www.parks.ca.gov/pages/638/files/abdspmap.pdf
