Rangers typically give the safe answer, still tell the rangers of your equipment and experience and also let them know you will be and how long you expect to be there especially when few travelers are in the park, take plenty of water and be safe. make a trip plan, leave same with folks at home to notify park if you do not call them within a safe time frame. Take photos of your adventures for Homero and the rest of us. I am going crazy and need a road trip soon to the bend even if I have to blow out for a few days on my own. Always check in with rangers.
better safe than ruining someone's trip to Big Bend with your rotting corpse I always say...

Back country Rangers actually patrol the back country. The changes / 'improvements" (how about the River Road of late) are to accommodate the Border Patrol. The Visitor Centers have info on roads. A tow off the Old Ore Road costs all the money. It's nice to help visitors not get stuck in the back country. The Back country roads are good most of the time but sharp rocks can cut two tires. Both on the same side. If you are prepared and informed you can have a lot of fun.
