Dodging the Roadkill: A Day Trip To West Tennessee

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Some of the best times I’ve had on my motorcycle have been in my own back yard.  Living in Tennessee presents me with beautiful countryside, navigated on back country roads for miles and miles.  I’m able to cross up into Kentucky, or down to Alabama and the roads and beautiful scenery just keep unfolding in front of me.

When I bought my first Harley last year, I traveled to San Marcos Texas. The first leg of my trip was to travel down Highway 79 and keep off of the Interstate.  I discovered beautiful roads, amazing countryside, quaint little towns and miles and miles of open road.

Before I knew it, I was in Memphis.

My Two Cents: A Night With The Jackson Generals

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterJackson, TN – During a family vacation this summer, my family and I were blessed to meet a remarkable young man named Dusty Stanfill.  He was born facing challenges that most of us couldn’t imagine.  You can read his story here. I remember that all he talked about was his beloved baseball team, the Jackson Generals.  

Since returning from vacation, I had been trying to figure out a way to pay him a visit, so what better way than to surprise him at a baseball game.  So, working with some fabulous people at the Jackson Generals, I straddled the Harley and took off.

AAA reports National Gas Price Average Drops for 21 Consecutive Days

 

AAATampa, FL – Continual growth in the number of U.S. oil rigs and the increased drilling it implies are raising expectations for a climb in domestic oil production. Additionally, increased U.S. crude oil production coupled with lower driving demand has kept downward pressure on the national average price at the pump, which has fallen for 21 consecutive days.

Today’s national average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $2.27 per gallon, down four cents versus one week ago, five cents less than one month ago, but 47 cents more per gallon year-over-year.

AAA reports Pump Prices have Dropped for Eight Consecutive Days

 

AAATampa, FL – Gas prices have fallen for eight consecutive days, reaching today’s national average price of $2.34 per gallon. The price of retail gasoline has retreated since last week with today’s average three cents less per gallon than one week ago, but ten cents more than one month ago and 43 cents more per gallon year-over-year.

The slight decrease in retail prices can be attributed to less demand and adequate supply, but this downward dip may only be temporary as the market awaits OPEC’s December monthly output report which is due out later this week.

Instant Peay Play: Dave Loos’ leave of absence leaves big hole on APSU Governors sideline

 

Instant Peay Play - APSU SportsClarksville, TN – When it was announced last Thursday morning that Dave Loos was going to take a leave of absence as head coach of the Austin Peay State University’s men’s basketball program, to focus on his fight versus cancer and having to continue chemotherapy, it left a huge hole on the Governors bench that he has filled since 1990.

It’s hard to think about the Governors men’s basketball program and not think about coach Loos – who from his first game leading the Govs back on November 11th, 1990 versus Arizona to the morning of his announced leave of absence covered 9,553 days.

AAA reports Drivers Paying Highest New Year’s Gas Prices Since 2014

 

AAATampa, FL – The New Year began with increased gas prices reaching today’s average of $2.34 per gallon. The national average has moved higher for 34 of the past 35 days, largely due to market reactions to last fall’s OPEC deal. Pump prices increased by five cents on the week, by 18 cents per gallon on the month, and are up by 34 cents on the year.

Moving into 2017, retail prices will continue to hinge on the ability of cartel countries to successfully implement production cuts, but retail averages are likely to increase leading up to the summer driving season as seasonal refinery maintenance gets underway this spring.

National Average Gas Price has gone up for the last 35 days due to OPEC Deal.
