RB210 One Million Years Ago

Huge LIVE dinosaurs are being seen in the Badlands at night and are scaring folks out of the Badlands. Conrad Vlandingum and his assistant Morgan are digging up dinosaur bones in the Badlands, but Bill doubts that they are real archaeologists. Vlandingum and his assistant are the only people who aren't afraid of these dinosaur sightings. Bill intends to find out how extinct dinosaurs have suddenly come to life.

This is another "new" Ranger Bill story that hasn't been aired in recent years. Enjoy this rare treat from Moody Audio and His Kids Radio.

Bent Creek, part 1 questions

Which town is closest to Bent Creek?
This question has two right answers. The best answer is Skutter's Corners. Knotty Pine is also correct because when the Raymonds needed a place for the evening, Knotty Pine (50 miles away) was the nearest town big enough to have a hotel. Skutters Corners is home to Hiram and Thor. It is also where Hiram has his general store where the Raymonds applied for mail service and bought groceries. Hiram used to own the general store in Bent Creek that is now closed.

What is a marble orchard?
Stumpy is the one who called the graveyard next to the Bent Creek Church a marble orchard. Congratulations to the many of you who got this one correct!!!

RB209 The Church at Bent Creek, pt.2

The boys return secretly for a second night at the haunted church at Bent Creek. Bill is convinced that someone or something is causing the late night lights and sounds at the church – and now a fence that sparks but has no electric power. Could it be Hiram or Thor?  Could the fence spark some ideas in our chief ranger?

RB208 The Church at Bent Creek (part 1)

Much of Bent Creek is abandoned including the general store - and the church. The reason it's abandoned is because folks there believe that the Bent Creek Church is haunted. Weird things go on at night inside the church - lights go on and off, the bell rings by itself, strange noises come from the tower, and the organ plays all by itself. Young pastor Jeff and his wife Jean are even afraid to stay at the parsonage. Bill, Stumpy and Gray Wolf have no idea what to do about the strange things that go on at the church. How will the gospel ever be preached again in Bent Creek?

This is the 6th "NEW" Ranger Bill adventure from our friends at His Kids Radio and Moody Audio. This is also our very first 2-part Ranger Bill adventure. Don't miss a minute of the action and excitement!!!

RB206 The Hot Million

It's hot and dry in the forest as Bill and Stumpy inspect the trees and fire lanes around Big Gap. The fellas also inspect the high tension power lines that run through the gap. A million volts of electricity pass up and down those lines. The boys find a weak line that is about to break. The sparks from a broken power line could start a raging treetop fire.There is a power company repair crew working not too far away. The boys find the crew and ask the foreman Burt Engals to take his crew and fix the badly stressed line, but Burt refuses. What can the boys do now to protect the forest from this high-powered danger?

This is a 4th "NEW" Ranger Bill story thanks to the folks at Moody Audio and His Kids Radio. This program has not been aired in many years. Don't miss out on the excitement of this "new" adventure!
