Dodging the Roadkill: After The Flood, The Rivers Edge Resort

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyEminence, MO – The first year of this journey I’m on, I was like a kid with the new bike he got for Christmas.  I wanted to go EVERYWHERE!

Not knowing much about where to ride, I would just google places of interest and during the summer of 2016, I came across a website, Motorcycle the Ozarks.  The pictures were beautiful, and I couldn’t resist the names of some of the roads to ride. 

How could I NOT go ride the Jesse James Getaway, or the Ozark Hellbender? What was even better was that the destination was only about four hours away and that was something I was looking for.

Wind Therapy: Last day of my Ozarks trip

 

TravelEminence, MO – Today was my last full day of riding through this part of the country.  It’s been quite an experience, and I’ve learned so much about the people and the region.

I started the day as usual with a hot cup of coffee, and some morning chatter with the locals. The buzz this morning was about this weekend’s big trail ride, bringing loads of horses and their riders. The rooms are all booked, the cabins are taken, and Eminence, Missouri will be covered with visitors.

They’ll have a big time.

Wind Therapy: Full day in the Ozarks

 

TravelEminence, MO – After a great night’s sleep along the Jack’s Fork River, I rolled out of bed to a beautiful sunrise and a calm breeze coming off the water.

I needed coffee, so it was off the Margie’s Restaurant in the middle of town.  I was greeted by a handful of locals who were all abuzz about, what else, politics.

It was a Trump crowd.

I had the morning special which was two eggs over easy, sausage and biscuits and glorious cups of coffee.  After chatting it up with the waitress about where some good roads would be to ride, I was off to saddle up.

Wind Therapy: Road to the Ozarks

 

TravelEminence, MO – I have landed in the Ozarks, in a little town called Eminence, Missouri.  This area is known for it’s tourism bringing thousands of visitors per year to take part in river excursions, horse trial rides, and beautiful mountain road for the avid biker.

That’s why I’m here.

I’ve landed at the River’s Edge Resort that sits on the Jack’s Fork of the Current River.  It’s breath-taking.  My quarters are in a rustic old motel that fronts the river, wth a balcony that stares out at the beautiful trees and the flowing waters of the river.

Wind Therapy: Riding the Ozarks

 

TravelClarksville, TN – The River’s Edge Resort is located in the town of Eminence Missouri, population, 600.  It boasts some of the country’s most beautiful landscape and waterways.

With 1/4 mile access to the Jack’s Fork of the Current River, visitors are treated to some of the finest in outdoor recreation. Canoeing, paddling, rafting, fishing, golf, hiking, swimming and most importantly, for me anyway, motorcycle trails.

That’s why I’m here.
