Dodging the Roadkill: The Hub in Robbinsville North Carolina

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyRobbinsville, NC – In my most recent trip to the amazing Smoky Mountains, my travel partner and I stayed in Robbinsville, North Carolina.  We’ve stayed in various different areas surrounding the mountains, and basically we’re looking for good value and price, so we landed here for this trip.

Just down the road, not even 100 yards, we discovered The Hub.  We were VERY satisfied at what we found.  Here’s the back story:

Five years ago, Greg McCoy was running a VERY successful motorcycle rental business.  A friend of his approached him about getting into the restaurant business.  Greg HATES to cook, but the two of them ventured on and The Hub was created.  It started as a coffee shop, but that didn’t last long.

Dodging the Roadkill: Tellicafe

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyTellico Plains, TN – If there was ever a place that bikers love to visit, it’s Tellicafe in Tellico Plains, Tennessee.  As you come out of the Smoky Mountains, specifically from the Cherohala Skyway, there it is, just waiting for you to pull in and have a meal.

The first two times I passed through Tellico Plains, I was not ready to eat.  What I DID notice was that the place was packed!  Motorcycles and sports cars were everywhere.  I thought, “that place must be good!”

I was right!

Dodging the Roadkill: The Bull & Thistle Pub

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyGainsboro, TN – On a beautiful Sunday morning in Tennessee, a group of my fellow H.O.G members gathered to take a ride to Gainsboro Tennessee.  Our destination?  The Bull & Thistle Pub.

The ride was gorgeous, and the fellowship was awesome!  To say that this restaurant seems out of place in this tiny town of just over 1000 people, would be an understatement.  

Located in Jackson County, it’s part of the Cookeville Tennessee Micropolitan Statistical Area, just fifteen miles from Cookeville Tennessee.

Dodging the Roadkill: Watching The Sun Come Up

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve always been a morning person.  I spent the last twenty years of my broadcasting career as a morning talk show host, so, the “crack of dawn” is no stranger to me.

I had a dream the other night that I was riding my Harley out through the Land Between the Lakes National Preserve, so when I woke up, I put on my gear and took off.

After a quick cup of coffee, I headed down Highway 79 towards Dover, TN.  As the sun was coming up behind me, it was a cool 57 degrees and I couldn’t be closer to heaven than at that moment.

Bikers know the solitude of early morning riding and how it touches your soul.  I wrote about it here.

American Heart Association says Kicking the Salt Shaker habit may not be enough

 

American Heart Association Rapid Access Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Restaurant foods and commercially processed foods sold in stores accounted for about 70 percent of dietary sodium intake in a study in three U.S. regions, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

Sodium is an important contributor to high blood pressure, one of the leading causes of heart attack and stroke. The American Heart Association recommends a maximum of 2,300 milligrams (mg) of sodium a day, which is equivalent to 1 teaspoon of salt.

Salt added at home during food preparation or at the table accounted for a small fraction of dietary sodium. (Copyright American Heart Association)
