Too young for the originals...

I'm 47 and always knew of the Lone Ranger but never really watched the series until recently. It started out as research for Halloween. I had decided to be the Lone Ranger - the real Lone Ranger, not the Disney perversion of... As I searched the various fan sites and google images, I came across a YouTube channel that played episodes.... I watched a couple and I was hooked! I became so obsessed that my family started to tease and kid me about it. None the less, I watched and observed. I was able to recreate a pretty good interpretation of the original Lone Ranger outfit, and in keeping with the laws of California, have a wearable gun belt and six- shooters. But it was what he stood for, what he believed and portrayed and how he promoted the true characteristics of what it meant to be a man and an American that I was really trying to portray. In reality my "costume" really was a tribute to The Lone Ranger. I am a fan for life and have tried to incorporate more of the Lone Ranger into my life. I would love to be able to be the Lone Ranger, to resurrect the man and the values, the innocence.. Finally and with no disrespect to John Hart and his time portraying the character, the lone is and always will be, Clayton Moore...
