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.

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.
