Dodging the Roadkill: Rain or Shine

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN -With the Memorial Day weekend behind us, I guess we can focus on summer and all that it brings with it.  Specifically, good weather.  The kind of weather that allows us plenty of “seat” time on our bikes.

Up to now, it’s been a crapshoot.  

Here in my neck of the woods, it seemed as though we went from winter straight to summer, without a hint of spring.  If you wanted to enjoy some time on your motorcycle, the best time of the day was in the morning, before the heat wave moved in.

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.

2nd Brigade Combat Team - StrikeFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionGatlinburg, TN – The life of a Soldier whose official status is single, can at times be difficult. Demanding work hours, living in close quarters and maintaining high standards amongst a large group, are just of few of the daily challenges facing the Strike solos of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).

According to Strong Bonds, a group dedicated to increasing the individual Soldier and family member readiness through relationship education and skill training, about half of the US Army is made up of single Soldiers, making it around 250,000 unwed Soldiers.
