APSU’s Center for Service-Learning & Community Engagement, campus community partner to aid national hurricane relief efforts

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – When Hurricane Maria — a Category 4 hurricane with winds up to 150 mph — ripped through the island of Puerto Rico on September 20th, 2017, the fury of Mother Nature appeared relentless, but Puerto Rico native and Austin Peay State University senior psychology major Maydaliz Bultron knew better than most that the damage left in the storm’s wake would be the true challenge for the island and its people.

“I grew up in Puerto Rico and I lived through Hurricane George (in 1998), so I understand what life is like in the wake of a storm,” Bultron said. “I remember things like not having running water and having to get ready for school in the dark with candles because the electricity had been knocked out during the storm.”

APSU takes in over a quarter-ton of goods and supplies for Hurricane Relief.

Dodging the Roadkill: Solo Or Group?

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I first started riding a couple of years ago, I couldn’t wait to hit the road.  There’s something about traveling on a motorcycle, alone, with just me, the motorcycle, and God’s beautiful creation.  Within a couple of months of owning my first bike, I took off for Texas.  One of my dearest friends and mentors lives near San Antonio, and I couldn’t wait to get out there and show him my new bike, and of course, ride the amazing Texas back country.

When I returned, I had several friends call me and tell me how “proud” and “amazed” they were about my trip.  I didn’t understand what the big deal was.  I’ve traveled many miles by myself and didn’t think anything about doing it on a bike. 

Riding Solo.

Dodging the Roadkill: Two Bikers And A Bucket List

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Every biker wants to ride the legendary Route 66.  Many of you have, and if you’re like me, you have it on your bucket list.  Two friends of mine recently completed that trek, logging nearly 5,000 miles before they got home.

David Bearden and Matt Moriarty have been friends for nearly 30 years.  They’re both veteran bikers who share the love of the open road and plenty of “wind therapy.”  They began planning their wild west trip nearly two years ago and like most adventures, it began with a simple, “we should do this.”

Riding along Route 66 was just the beginning of their 3 week adventure.  They visited the world’s largest Mcdonalds, the Route 66 Museum, and had dinner at The Big Texan, a legendary steak house.
