    23rd ORT in The Lone Ranger โ€“ Moonlight Racing 3-15-14

    Itโ€™s been way too long since Iโ€™ve had the chance to go out and play (9/13 was the last outing). Kiddo is taking up quite a bit of time so the truck doesnโ€™t see much in the way of play time anymore. But hey, It was nice to get out into the woods again! When was the last time you saw a Mercury Wagon on the road? We showed up with a huge crowd and…

    19th ORT in The Lone Ranger โ€“ Turkey Bay 7-27-13

With full bellies, the group loaded up and continued down through the LBL area to Turkey Bay: At the park, we met up with the rest of the group. Iโ€™ll be honest, I was a little nervous…
