Austin Peay State University celebrates 10 years of Alternative Break Trips

 

Austin Peay State University (APSU) 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – A few years ago, a group of Austin Peay State University (APSU) students found themselves deep in the Florida Everglades, helping clean up an abandoned military site.

Few people knew the installation existed because, during the Cold War, the U.S. Government kept 11,000-pound Nike Hercules missiles – all aimed at Cuba – at this hidden base.

Dodging the Roadkill: Psychologically Spring

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It’s time to SPRING FORWARD and I couldn’t be more excited. I am NOT a fan of winter and although it’s not officially spring, psychologically, I’m there.

I hate January and February. 

I guess the older I get, the more I can’t tolerate cold temperatures.  Plus, it cuts down on my “biker” time.  In my part of the country, Tennessee, we have some of the most schizophrenic weather you will find.

One day it could be 60 degrees, then the next day, 25. We could have snow overnight,that would melt away to a fifty degree day by afternoon.

Nashville Predators embarrassed by the Las Vegas Golden Knights 5-1

 

Nashville PredatorsLas Vegas, NV– The Las Vegas Golden Knights ran roughshod over the Nashville Predators tonight in sin city, breaking a five game home losing streak with the win, 5-1.

Nashville starting goalie Juuse Saros blocked 45 shots on the night, but Las Vegas attempted the most shots on goal for the season against Nashville with 50.

The Predators thought they had the first goal of the night in the first period when Colton Sissons scored on a breakaway, but the goal was disallowed when Vegas challenged for off side.  After the video review, it was determined that Sissons WAS in fact off side, so no goal.

Dodging the Roadkill: Why Bikers Mean So Much To Each Other

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I decided to buy a motorcycle, I was just as interested in the “community” as I was the machine.  I had always heard what a tight knit brotherhood there was, but I had no idea it was this special. 

The people I’ve met and the places I’ve seen has been incredible.  Makes me sad that I took so long to discover it, but there’s no point in looking back, I’m not headed in that direction. 

Along the way, my motorcycle has provided me with opportunities to travel.  To see the world from a different perspective.  To actually ENJOY the open road and the experience it provides.
