    That’s at the Halo Pub in Hamilton Square, NJ. Ron had the banana split as I recall. Recover quickly, Ron, as we need to get there again.

        I can make out the license plate well enough to see that it is Jim and Regina Lowenberg's car. The red one is not ours and the tsg is not clear enough for me to resd.

          Okay, Ted, I'm giving you the win based on the Spearfish pic and this very imaginative one. Mostly I like it because of the fun we had doing it and the fact Ron is on all of our minds at this time.

          Thanks to everyone else that participated. I enjoyed all your pics.

          • I love looking at these pictures and when I see any from Black Hills Thunder I always think of Gary Himes and Bill Green. I was the jerk with the SUV on a TBN event and they were the ones who loaned me Gary's CAR so Barb and I didn't look like the people who didn't get it! He was such a great person, definitely a lot like Ron McCloud.

            • Yes, Cal, they are both cut from the same cloth in many, many ways. A bonus of Ted's picture at Spearfish is that Gary is in it on the far left side. Those lucky enough to know them both have been greatly blessed.

              • Although his back is facing the camera, I think Joe Apicella is the tall guy in the black trousers and green shirt, is that you Joe? I think it was you, from the slight forward lean of your stance and your hair color. It is not easy to identify all the people in this picture, it's like a puzzle.

                  Thanks Paul. That photo of you guys in the Mississippi show what TBN is all about (at least in my eyes), good people having good fun.

                  So in keeping of the "keeping Ron in our thoughts and prayers" how about a photo of Ron that you have. I'm sure it will make him smile knowing we are all thinking of him.

                  This is one of Ron at a stop along highway 101, The Redwood Highway, near Miranda California on September 13, 2018 during our Thunder Out West trip that I was so fortunate to be able to be part of.

                  I know its bending the rules of the challenge a bit but I'm sure there will be at least one or two that will have a Thunderbird in it, or a sundae.

                  • Good challenge, Ted. We can make exceptions to the "rules" for a good cause. Here's some with Ron & Liz I was able to find in my archives.

                    Get well, Ron, so we can have more.

                        • I love to look at these TBN pictures. I have missed many, but attended a number of them since 2006. When I first met Ron it was in Tennessee at the Bar-B-Q joint where we overwhelmed the staff with all our folks showing up at the same time. At the time it was a big deal that he had 4 Thunderbirds. I told him I'd have to be a bachelor to have 2 let alone 4. He laughed, I think he thought, I'm just getting started! I think it was Chattanooga ChooChoo Thunder

                              • This is Ron and Liz going into Louisiana for the 48th state in the Inca Gold, I think that was his 2nd car to make all 48 States.
