U.S. Army Corps of EngineersNashville, TN – School is back in session, work has picked up, days are getting shorter, and there is just one holiday left before the unofficial end of summer. This Labor Day weekend families will get together to recreate and celebrate all the hard days they have worked.

When swimming or boating on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lakes, the public is encouraged to have fun, but remember a few water safety tips to keep safe.

Swimming in designated areas is always best. Designated swimming areas on the Corps of Engineers property are well marked by floating orange lines and protected by “Boat Keep Out” buoys.

Wind Therapy: Last day of my Ozarks trip

 

TravelEminence, MO – Today was my last full day of riding through this part of the country.  It’s been quite an experience, and I’ve learned so much about the people and the region.

I started the day as usual with a hot cup of coffee, and some morning chatter with the locals. The buzz this morning was about this weekend’s big trail ride, bringing loads of horses and their riders. The rooms are all booked, the cabins are taken, and Eminence, Missouri will be covered with visitors.

They’ll have a big time.

Wind Therapy: Riding the Ozarks

 

TravelClarksville, TN – The River’s Edge Resort is located in the town of Eminence Missouri, population, 600.  It boasts some of the country’s most beautiful landscape and waterways.

With 1/4 mile access to the Jack’s Fork of the Current River, visitors are treated to some of the finest in outdoor recreation. Canoeing, paddling, rafting, fishing, golf, hiking, swimming and most importantly, for me anyway, motorcycle trails.

That’s why I’m here.
