Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) has confirmed the sighting of a cougar in Wayne County on property located in an area between Linden and the county seat of Waynesboro.

Eminence, MO – After a great night’s sleep along the Jack’s Fork River, I rolled out of bed to a beautiful sunrise and a calm breeze coming off the water.
I needed coffee, so it was off the Margie’s Restaurant in the middle of town. I was greeted by a handful of locals who were all abuzz about, what else, politics.
It was a Trump crowd.
I had the morning special which was two eggs over easy, sausage and biscuits and glorious cups of coffee. After chatting it up with the waitress about where some good roads would be to ride, I was off to saddle up.

I’ve landed at the River’s Edge Resort that sits on the Jack’s Fork of the Current River. It’s breath-taking. My quarters are in a rustic old motel that fronts the river, wth a balcony that stares out at the beautiful trees and the flowing waters of the river.
Clarksville, TN – If you know me, you know I’ve recently bought a motorcycle. Late last year I became the proud owner of a Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special.
