I am intrigued by your information lilricky. I guess the fire did more damage to the wilderness then simply burning it. But I digress.
I looked up FR 76A using google streetview, part of google maps, and it looks like they have a locked gate and a guardrail between SR 19 and FR 76A.
About the Old Access Road, I know for a fact that at the southern end of Crooked Sapling Pond, there is a road. But it is largely overgrown.
I think you are out of luck on getting closer by vehicle, zukiguy.
I wish I could join everyone out there, but that weekend does not work for me. I wish you guys the best.
