Dodging the Roadkill: The Pig

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCadiz, KY – I’ve spent several days this week, riding the Harley around the beautiful Lake Barkley area in Cadiz, Kentucky.  If you’ve never had the opportunity to ride through here,  I would highly recommend you make it a point to do so.  

You’ll find the Natchez Trace Parkway that runs through the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation area and beautiful Kentucky back roads to travel.  

The fantastic Barkley Lodge and Kenlake State Resort are must see destinations!

As I was riding in and around downtown Cadiz, I kept noticing these pigs.

Dodging the Roadkill: Watching The Sun Come Up

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve always been a morning person.  I spent the last twenty years of my broadcasting career as a morning talk show host, so, the “crack of dawn” is no stranger to me.

I had a dream the other night that I was riding my Harley out through the Land Between the Lakes National Preserve, so when I woke up, I put on my gear and took off.

After a quick cup of coffee, I headed down Highway 79 towards Dover, TN.  As the sun was coming up behind me, it was a cool 57 degrees and I couldn’t be closer to heaven than at that moment.

Bikers know the solitude of early morning riding and how it touches your soul.  I wrote about it here.
