Dodging the Roadkill: Expectations

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Let me first apologize for not posting any updates in the last week.  The flu bug/stomach bug has made the rounds through my household, so me and the “porcelain throne” have become “besties” this week.

One of the most common questions I get from the people I meet on this journey is, “do you stop and visit Harley dealerships when you travel?” 

Yes. 

I try to visit any and ALL dealerships when I’m on the road, especially Harley Davidson, because I collect Poker Chips.

Unbreakable Bonds

 

Written by Mary Therese Griffin
U.S. Army Warrior Care and Transition

U.S. Army Warrior Care and TransitionArlington, VA – For U.S. Army Spc. Mitchell Bombeck, joining the military was a no brainer. It’s a family tradition.

The self-proclaimed farm boy from Minnesota became an all-wheel diesel mechanic in the Forward Support Company, 682nd Engineer Battalion in the Minnesota National Guard.

At six feet and two inches tall, weighing 230 pounds, it would seem tough to break such a solid man, but it happened.

Dodging the Roadkill: Colorado – Riding up Mount Evans

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – On the first day of my trip to Colorado, my crew and I awoke to the beautiful Pike’s Peak that overlooks our hotel.  Right off the bat, I could tell this was going to be a good day.

Preparing for the change in temperature to be expected during the day, my common question was, “just how cold does it get up there?”

A beautiful ride to get to our destination, we found ourselves in Idaho Springs before we headed to the top. 

Mount Evans is the highest summit in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.  The 14,271 foot peak is located in the Mount Evans Wilderness.

Dodging the Roadkill: Riding Skyline Drive in Canon City Colorado

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCanon City, CO – During my first trip to Colorado, one of the things that I had to see, was Skyline Drive in Canon City Colorado.  After riding up and over the Rocky Mountains, and Mount Evans, I didn’t expect this to be much of a trip.

I was wrong.

We left Colorado Springs and headed down highway 115.  It was early in the morning, so there was little traffic, but we could tell it was going to be a hot day.

The ride to Canon City was different from the others we had taken earlier in the week.  The scenery was more “brown and tan” as opposed to the beautiful green colors of the mountains.

Dodging the Roadkill: Riding the Rockies

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I just returned from my first trip to Colorado.  What an experience!  I’ve never seen such beautiful country!

One of the many day trips I took was through the Rockies.  It took me a couple of miles before it REALLY hit me that I was actually in THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS!  Almost a surreal experience.

The first thing I noticed was the smell.  The cool crisp mountain air filled with the fresh smell of pine trees.  It’s a beautiful entrance to one of the world’s most famous landmarks.

Dodging the Roadkill: Saltgrass Steakhouse

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I traveled to Colorado recently and after a couple of hard days of riding, I was yearning for a good steak.  The Saltgrass Steak House was just down the road from where I was staying, so I had to give it a try. 

They refer to themselves as “the original Texas Steakhouse” and after slicing into my rib-eye, I could understand. 

Their story dates back to the 1800’s, according to their website, when millions of Longhorns roamed freely throughout Texas.  With the taste for beef becoming a newfound favorite in the North, Texas ranchers prospered as never before.
