Dodging The Roadkill: Riding the Natchez Trace Parkway

 

Clarksville, TN I had heard so much about riding the Natchez Trace Parkway that when the day came, I was like a kid in a candy store.

As you know, I love to travel alone and everything I had heard about “riding the Trace” indicated that if you want to be “one” with your bike, and enjoy some solitude, then the Trace is where you go.

It was November 8th, 2016, Election Day.  We would FINALLY  be at the end of this national nightmare of a Presidential Election.  I was so sick of it all that taking this trip was the perfect way to turn off all the damn “noise.”

Dodging the Roadkill: The Fort Jackson National Cemetery

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColumbia, SC – On a recent trip to South Carolina, my first, I was rolling down the interstate when I noticed a road sign for the Fort Jackson National Cemetery.

I had to visit.

I’m not a history buff, in fact it wasn’t one of my favorite courses in school, but there’s just something about being able to be among those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for me. To be able to look out across the field at all the headstones and try to just think about what they went through. To think about how they laid down their life.

The price paid for the 4th of July!

 

The premier holiday of the summer symbolizes more than a time for grilling, fireworks and road trips and just general fun stuff!

City of Clarksville July 4th fireworks display The 4th of July is widely acknowledged as “THE Summer Holiday” here in the United States. The traditional events of the day are well enshrined in our popular culture. People are planning big family cookouts, grilling, barbecuing, pool parties, sports events of all kinds- baseball, soccer, softball, badminton, volleyball, swimming, bicycling and small and super fireworks displays – all typical holiday celebration activities.

buffalosoldiersnatlmuseum.jpgYet there is far more to this holiday of holidays, this one uniquely American blowout. Sacrifices have been made that allow us to engage in these festivities. The lives which have been been laid down that allow us these exercises of indulgence also need to be acknowledged. There are so many individual sacrifices that have occurred in the course of our history that have received little, if any, recognition. What follows is a somewhat skewered collection of notable moments that have added to our American story.
