Dodging the Roadkill: Layered Up To Throttle Up

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Obviously old man winter has reared his ugly head in many parts of the country, so the days I get to ride are far and few between. 

Today was one of those days.

I haven’t had “black beauty” out for a good run in over a week.  On that day, the temps were in the low to mid fifties, but I was still trying to shake a bad cold and just didn’t feel it.  

This week, we’ve had rain, ice and some snow flurries, so the best I could do was fire up the “beast” and take it for a quick spin around the neighborhood.  Not much, but it felt good.

40th Public Affairs Detachment, 101st Airborne Division 

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Leaders from across the 101st Airborne Division attended a Subterranean Training course hosted by the Fort Benning Maneuver Center of Excellence throughout the month of July on Fort Campbell.

The Chief of Staff of the Army has directed that the Army take a look at dense urban environments and dense urban terrain specifically, as it builds readiness to respond to contingency operations in any location around the world.

The MCoE teams explained how they analyze all aspects of this environment within megacities, to include subterranean systems. The subterranean operational environment, which dates as far back as the American Civil War, continues to be one that is complex and can create significant challenges for today’s Soldier.

Nashville Predators snap losing streak to defeat Ottawa Senators 3-1

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators recovered from a disastrous Canadian road trip to defeat the Ottawa Senators at the Bridgestone Arena, 3-1.

The win in front of a noisy “Smashville” home crowd, was a much needed shot in the arm following two losses last week to Vancouver and Calgary.  The injury plagued Predators have been finding ways to win without P.K Subban, Viktor Arvidsson and Kyle Turris, all on the injury list.

Ottawa scored first, just twenty six seconds into the contest on a mishandled shot by Pekka Rinne.  Zack Smith’s backhand skipped over the outstretched glove of Rinne for the early 1-0 Ottawa lead.
