Dodging the Roadkill: Weekend In The Smokies

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – One of the great things about being in Tennessee, is that the Smoky Mountains are just down the road.  This time of the year is probably the most popular time of the year to visit, because of the beautiful fall colors, but for bikers, it’s for the riding.   

We left early Friday morning, and right off the jump, I pulled my back out.  It was just a quirky thing when I raised up, “BOOM” I had a knot in my back.  If you’ve ever had a problem with your sciatica then you know what I’m talking about.  It didn’t bother me while I was in the saddle, but as soon as I stood up, I could barely walk.

GREAT!

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationHuntsville, AL – NASA is on a mission to inspire young minds to become the next generation of critical thinkers. By engaging students in space exploration at the agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, NASA encourages learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in a way that fosters hands-on learning and discovery.

“As more states incorporate STEM-focused education into their standards, we assist teachers by developing curriculum support materials that help them meet the standards while making learning fun for their students,” said Susan Currie, education specialist at Marshall.
