Dodging the Roadkill: Traveling Solo


Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I bought my first motorcycle, the first trip I took was to Texas.  I have close friends who live in San Marcos, and I wanted to make sure my first trip was to visit them.  It was one of the most exciting trips I’ve ever been on.  I never thought twice about going it alone.

I’ve traveled all of my life.  As a young military brat, travel was just part of the deal.  I flew from Okinawa to the states in 1969, leaving my family behind to attend a military academy.  It was no big deal, but the world was a different place back then.

When I returned home from Texas, I got numerous calls and texts from friends who told me how proud they were that I did that.  Several made it out to be a really big deal, but I didn’t think anything about it.
