AAA reports Vehicle Escape Tools can be a Lifesaver, in the Right Situation

 

AAAOrlando, FL – According to new research from AAA , most vehicle escape tools, intended to quickly aid passengers trapped in a car following an accident, will break tempered side windows, but none were able to penetrate laminated glass.

Motorists may not realize it, but an increasing number of new cars – in fact, 1 in 3 2018 vehicle models – have laminated side windows, a nearly unbreakable glass meant to lessen the chance of occupant ejection during a collision.

New research finds vehicle escape tools effective in breaking tempered side windows, but not laminated. (AAA)

Dodging the Roadkill: T-Minus Two Weeks

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Two weeks from today, me and my crew will hit the road for the 2019 Sturgis Rally.  I’ve never been to that part of the country, much less the biggest motorcycle rally in the country, so you can imagine my excitement!  

It’s a “bucket list” item.

I committed to joining three other brothers on this trip last year, and I’ve been counting down the days ever since.  I’m mostly going for the amazing riding opportunities, but I can’t wait to soak it all in.

There WAS a time in my life when I was more excited about the late nights, the bars, the concerts, and “mixing” with others, but at this stage of my life, I’ll be lucky to stay up late enough to see the sun go down!

NASA celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationHouston, TX – NASA lands “Men Land On The Moon”.

Words such as these were emblazoned in dozens of languages on the front page of newspapers around the world, echoing the first part of President John F. Kennedy’s bold challenge to the nation, made more than eight years earlier – to land a man on the Moon.

That part was successfully accomplished on July 20th, 1969. The second part of the challenge, the safe return to Earth, would have to wait four more days.
