Dodging the Roadkill: Random Thoughts

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN I just wanted to share a few thoughts about what’s been going on with me lately.  There’s no particular theme to this post, just a few thoughts from the last several days.

First, I rode to Fort Smith, Arkansas for their Steel Horse Rally.  This is the fourth year for this event and it draws thousands of bikers to the area.

I met the organizers of this event and you could tell this is a real passion for them.  The event grows every year and raises money for local charities in the Ft. Smith area.  It focuses on those who serve and HAVE served.  They get a lot of support from the area, especially local law enforcement.

Survey respondents were more likely to choose a daily cup of tea or a pill over exercise to “treat” high blood pressure in an imaginary scenario, but many didn’t think the interventions were worth the benefits. (American Heart Association)
