Clarksville, TN – When I launched this blog, I did it as a journal. It was therapy for me. I had just discovered what motorcycles were all about. I was caught up in this culture and what makes it special. It pulled me out of depression.
Along the way, I’ve shared my journey and you have responded. I’ve met so many incredible people and been to so many places that I would have never seen had it not been for my Harley.
So, I thought it would be cool if I asked YOU to share your journey with me and let me publish it here on Dodging the Roadkill. You don’t have to be a writer, or have any writing experience. Just tell it like it is and put it in an email and send it to me.

Arlington, VA – Make no mistake. Lindsey Davison is a tough physical therapist. She wants results.
The Fort Campbell Kentucky Adaptive Reconditioning Program Manager attended the Warrior Care and Transition Leadership Training Summit in early November at Fort Belvoir, VA where she very candidly told the audience of over 80 plus leaders from the Warrior Transition Battalions, her secret to assist in readiness.
“This is a hard position, I feel, for a battalion commander to be in. Most of the time WTB commanders are not medical officers they are infantry, artillery, etc. and they have a business to run.” Davison feels this is where she and the rest of the WTB staff are there to fully support their commanders.
