Clarksville, TN – The City of Clarksville’s Independence Day celebration will look different this year amid health concerns from the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
While no fireworks celebration is planned, The Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department is preparing multiple events and activities leading up to Independence Day.
Events include: Toddler Fourth of July Craft Class, Independence Day Attire creation, Yankee Doodle Dandy Crafts & Snacks, Star-Spangled Family Non-Cooking Class and the Firecracker Virtual 5K.
Clarksville, TN – There’s a popular internet meme that says, “don’t look back, there’s nothing to see there.” My understanding is that it refers to your life BEFORE motorcycles, and while that’s true, I think it’s healthy to take stock in where you’ve come from and how you will move forward.
Self improvement is a never ending process. Learning from your mistakes is critical. To just simply ignore the things that happen in your life as coincidence is wrong. In my opinion, I believe that things happen for a reason, and I’ve got to recognize that.
I don’t want to be better than everybody else, I just want to be better than I was yesterday.
Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department hosted Clarksville’s third annual Clarksville BBQ Bash on Saturday, October 19th, 2019 at Liberty Park.
The BBQ Bash included a full barbecue competition, people’s choice, cornhole tournament, artisan vendors and kids activities.
Barbeque Competition: Nineteen competitors from near and far met on the banks of the Cumberland River this weekend to see who had the best barbeque. A team of judges evaluated barbeque in three categories (pork, chicken, ribs) based on the following criteria: taste, appearance, and texture.
Danville, KY – I discovered the Kentucky State Barbeque Festival quite by accident.
On a trip home from another assignment, I had the greater part of a day to kill. In a search for events in Kentucky, I discovered this festival. It was already in progress, and it was on my way home, so I took a beautiful ride through the Kentucky countryside and discovered Danville, Kentucky.
Danville has a population of just under 17,000. In 2011, Money Magazine placed Danville as the fourth best place to retire in the United States.
It’s the home to Centre College, which hosted the U.S Vice Presidential debates in 2000, and 2012.
Clarksville, TN – A couple of years ago, I had taken a trip to Madison Indiana. Friends had told me there was some incredible riding opportunities there, with roads all along the Ohio river.
I was also planning to visit Jeffersonville, Indiana and interview their police department, which was starring on the A&E series, LivePD.
The Jeffersonville interviews fell through, so I had some extra time on my hands and when I searched for nearby events that I could visit, the Kentucky State Barbecue Festival popped up.
It’s held in Danville, Kentucky and was just a few hours from where I was, so off I went. What a great decision that was!
Clarksville, TN – Now that we have officially ridden into the first weekend of spring, I think we can all just breathe a little sigh of relief, even if it’s just for the fact that it’s officially SPRING!
We might still have some challenging weather ahead but, BY GOD SPRING HAS SPRUNG!
As I was riding yesterday, one of the things that always stands out this time of the year are these little patches of yellow tulips that sprout up in some of the most unlikely places. It’s like they’re saying, “I think I can, I think I can” as they try to hurry spring along. Things haven’t quite gotten “green” yet, so these beautiful reminders are there for you and me showing us that it won’t be long.
