Roger Sanders the Two Lane Rambler

You never know where you'll find an interesting story. A couple of weeks ago we got an email from an old friend, Roger Sanders, asking if we might take a look at his new adventure and business. Two Lane Rambler is all about "Discovering Rural America" as this former newspaper and magazine writer travels the back roads and helps you discover hidden treasurers tucked away in small towns and villages.
