Dodging the Roadkill: Mammoth Cave National Park

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCentral Kentucky – On a recent trip to Northern Kentucky, I decided to take a quick “ride through” of Mammoth Cave National Park.  I had passed by it several times on previous trips, but had never ventured off to see it first hand.  If you’re a biker, (and you probably are) you HAVE to ride this magnificent park.

Mammoth Cave National Park is located just of Interstate 65 at exit 48, (the Park City exit), that turns onto Ky-255.  It turns into Park City Road that joins Mammoth Cave Parkway.  

The park is a U.S National Park that encompasses portions of Mammoth Cave, which is the longest cave system in the world.  The park’s 52,830 acres are located in Edmonson County Kentucky and is centered on the Green River.

RV Owners Should Test Their Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Tennessee State Fire MarshalNashville, TN – Even when enjoying the great outdoors in Tennessee, RV owners should be wary of the dangers that can arise from carbon monoxide in and around tents and RVs.

Often called “the silent killer,” carbon monoxide (CO) is an invisible, odorless gas created when fuels (such as kerosene, gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely.

Carbon monoxide can result from a number of camping equipment, such as barbecue grills, portable generators or other fuel-powered devices.
