    20th ORT in The Lone Ranger – Flat Nasty 8/24/13

    A couple of folks headed down the Friday before to do a little camping down at the park. Itโ€™s a primitive campground, and since the park wasnโ€™t busy, we had the whole area to ourselves which made it nice and quiet. Just the way I like it. The following day, we covered about 10 ยพ miles mostly consisting of trails 5, 14, 4, and proving grounds with a few other sights mixed in for good measure. A little larger group…

Apparently you need to knock on the door to…
