    The Mighty Merc – 7th ORT – Flat Nasty Off Road 7-28-18

    Now that construction is complete on the new place (well.. mostly) we felt well overdue for a trip to the woods. A friend picked a weekend at Flat Nasty, so we loaded up and rolled out. The kids were very excited to get to the park as ever since we had mentioned “Going to the Woods” a few days prior, they kept asking if it was time to go yet:

    The Mighty Merc – 6th ORT – Flat Nasty Off Road 2-10-18

    Yes, 6th trip. I only took one photo from the 5th trip out so you’ll just have to use your imagination on that one!

With all the rain down there lately, there were a…

    The Mighty Merc – 1st ORT Flat Nasty 12-31-16

    Well it nearly felt like this day would never come, but I finally broke my 1.5 year wheeling drought by getting out to wheel New Year’s Eve with some old friends. I also dragged along Grandpa and the Boy to share in the adventure. After waking up the kid early and picking up grandpa, we headed down to the park:
