    Dodging the Roadkill: Memorial Day

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – As we approach Memorial Day, I have some thoughts.  Schools have let out and bikers have saddled up and taken to the open road.  A lot of those bikers are veterans. 

    Since I began this journey, I’ve NEVER had such a thrill as meeting all of the veterans I’ve met through this motorcycle.  I ride with active duty and retired veterans all the time and there’s no finer group of people ON THE PLANET!

    The reason I’m able to enjoy my Harley and travel the open road is because of the service and sacrifice of the American Soldier. I grew up as a military brat but was unable to serve. The military life is a unique experience.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Riding the Devil’s Triangle

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCumberland Plateau, TN – On a beautiful Saturday in May, up on the Cumberland Plateau just north of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, I joined a group of fellow bikers to ride the notorious Devil’s Triangle.

    This is NOT for the faint of heart.

    I’ve only been riding since January of 2016, and since I took to my “journey” I’ve logged over 41,000 miles.  In the beginning my skills were sketchy, but with miles, comes confidence, and improved skills.

    During the summer of 2016, I joined my dear Texas friends for a week long trip that included riding the “Tail of the Dragon.”  The reputation of the “Tail” had me a little apprehensive.  “Was I prepared to ride it?” I would ask myself.

    My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Win Western Conference Championship

     

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – It was an amazing night to be at the Bridgestone Arena tonight as the Nashville Predators defeated the Anaheim Ducks, 6-3, to win the Western Conference Championship.  The Predators now await the winner of the Pittsburgh/Ottawa series to see who they will play.  

    THIS IS FOR LORD STANLEY’S CUP!  THE MOST REVERED TROPHY IN ALL OF SPORTS!

    The arena was sold out.  The grounds surrounding the Bridgestone Arena were packed with, by some estimates, 5,000-10,000 fans watching the game on the big screens that were placed all around the arena.

    My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Continue Historic Stanley Cup Run

     

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – They say the Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy to hoist.  Well, if you’re a Predators fan, you know this all too well.  We’re not there yet, but what a battle it’s been. 

    This amazing team has rolled through Chicago and St. Louis and has taken the best shots that Anaheim has thrown at them.  Anaheim has turned this series into a gutter brawl.  Cheap shots, low blows and hits AFTER the whistle, but,  WE’RE STILL STANDING!  In fact, we lead the series, 3-2.

    My Two Cents: I Was An Uber Driver

     

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – After I sold my business in 2012, my wife and I bought a downtown Nashville condo so we could spend some time in the “Music City.”  After all, it was slowly becoming the “it” city and there was plenty to do.  Even for us old folks.

    I had started to get bored with basically nothing to do, when I read an article in the Nashville paper about “Cab drivers upset over Uber.”

    I thought, “what the hell is Uber?”

    Once I googled Uber, I thought, “That’s a hell of an idea.”  “I could do that.”  So, I filled out an online application and they called me back the very next morning.

    My days as an Uber driver.

    Dodging the Roadkill: A Visit To The Military Memorial Museum

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCrossville, TN – On a beautiful day in May, I joined several other bikers for a day trip to Crossville, Tennessee. We were going to visit the Military Memorial Museum.

    And of course, ride the beautiful Cumberland Plateau.

    In all of my years, I had never known that this museum existed, much less, that Tennessee was the home to four POW Camps during the war.

    “Camp Crossville” along with Camp Forrest in Tullahoma, Camp Campbell in Clarksville, and Camp Tyson in Henry County is where German POW’s were sent. There isn’t much evidence of the other camps today, but in Crossville, what remains of the actual camp is now a 4-H camp. The Military Memorial Museum houses the memories of the war.
