Black Mollie felt like she wanted an excursion today. First to the crik via Watts Valley Road, across to Pittman Hill Rd., then Tollhouse, then Lodge, then old SJ&E Rd. to Old Tollhouse, up Auberry Rd. to Mono Winds for fuel, then back upand along the ridge to Cressmans, then 5 miles down Tollhouse Rd. and back to the barn. A nice 40 mile putt! Lots of 2nd & 3rd gear time, occasionally saw 4th on the downhills. Saw a yearling deer & smelled the flowers.

That is the same color scheme I painted on my first RC car!  Love it!

           Just curious - in picture 3 Oakland your ammeter is a bit negative. Was your key On, but the engine not started yet?

           I miss my rides similar to yours above & am hating winter more than ever this year. Thank god I can still look forward to the first Ruckus Rideout    :)

Engine at slow idle, taking a picture. Charging is iffy there. Days are getting longer - Summer is just around the corner!  ;)

     I start feeling I can see around the corner around my birthday (the 5th of March).
