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.

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.
