Dodging The Roadkill: Riding the Natchez Trace Parkway

 

Clarksville, TN I had heard so much about riding the Natchez Trace Parkway that when the day came, I was like a kid in a candy store.

As you know, I love to travel alone and everything I had heard about “riding the Trace” indicated that if you want to be “one” with your bike, and enjoy some solitude, then the Trace is where you go.

It was November 8th, 2016, Election Day.  We would FINALLY  be at the end of this national nightmare of a Presidential Election.  I was so sick of it all that taking this trip was the perfect way to turn off all the damn “noise.”
