Eminence, MO – Today was my last full day of riding through this part of the country. It’s been quite an experience, and I’ve learned so much about the people and the region.
I started the day as usual with a hot cup of coffee, and some morning chatter with the locals. The buzz this morning was about this weekend’s big trail ride, bringing loads of horses and their riders. The rooms are all booked, the cabins are taken, and Eminence, Missouri will be covered with visitors.
They’ll have a big time.
Eminence, MO – After a great night’s sleep along the Jack’s Fork River, I rolled out of bed to a beautiful sunrise and a calm breeze coming off the water.
I needed coffee, so it was off the Margie’s Restaurant in the middle of town. I was greeted by a handful of locals who were all abuzz about, what else, politics.
It was a Trump crowd.
I had the morning special which was two eggs over easy, sausage and biscuits and glorious cups of coffee. After chatting it up with the waitress about where some good roads would be to ride, I was off to saddle up.
Eminence, MO – I have landed in the Ozarks, in a little town called Eminence, Missouri. This area is known for it’s tourism bringing thousands of visitors per year to take part in river excursions, horse trial rides, and beautiful mountain road for the avid biker.
That’s why I’m here.
I’ve landed at the River’s Edge Resort that sits on the Jack’s Fork of the Current River. It’s breath-taking. My quarters are in a rustic old motel that fronts the river, wth a balcony that stares out at the beautiful trees and the flowing waters of the river.
Clarksville, TN – The River’s Edge Resort is located in the town of Eminence Missouri, population, 600. It boasts some of the country’s most beautiful landscape and waterways.
With 1/4 mile access to the Jack’s Fork of the Current River, visitors are treated to some of the finest in outdoor recreation. Canoeing, paddling, rafting, fishing, golf, hiking, swimming and most importantly, for me anyway, motorcycle trails.
That’s why I’m here.
Clarksville, TN – If you know me, you know I’ve recently bought a motorcycle. Late last year I became the proud owner of a Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special.
IT. IS. AWESOME!
Now, if you’re a biker, you know how I feel, if you’re not, then don’t wait any longer to answer the call of the open road. You only live once so don’t put it off. If you’ve wanted it, go get it. You won’t regret it.
Clarksville, TN – Today, I paid my final respects to the one man who had the most influence on me and my career. To the man who took a chance on me, who believed in me, who showed me what it was like to be great.
Today I said farewell to Charlie Malone.
Clarksville, TN – “Faith and understanding rest on the hope of eternal life. Before time began, God promised to give that life. And he does not lie.” Titus 1.
It seemed only fitting that former Clarksville City Councilman Gabe Segovia would lose his battle to cancer on the day God chose to begin his life. And while there are many who think that is so sad, I celebrate for Gabe.
The pain is gone. The suffering is over. Now, go rest my brother!
Clarksville, TN – Convenient Car Care Inc., the Clarksville Valvoline franchisee, recently received the inaugural “Samaritan Spirit Award” from Valvoline at their annual workshop held in Marco Island.

Clarksville, TN – I was the victim of a random assault two weeks ago.
While walking to dinner in Nashville, I was confronted “face to face” by a homeless man. He was EXTREMELY drunk.
So,instead of just walking past him, or sidestepping him, I decided to let my ego overload my good judgement. I told him to “step off” and he punched me in the face.
Nashville, TN – After selling my business in 2012, I bought a condo in Nashville. My wife and I spend time there enjoying football, hockey, good food and entertainment.
I spend more time here than she does, developing new business relationships, and reconnecting with old friends.
The Nashville landscape is growing in leaps and bounds,and that includes a growing homeless population. And I mean GROWING. And aggressive.
