A Visit from Saint NicholasClarksville, TN – Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house;
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;

And mamma in her kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap—

Keep track of Santa tonight with NORAD

 

Norad Tracks SantaPeterson Air Force Base, CO – NORAD is tracking Santa’s flight across the world just like it’s predecessor did, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD), for more than 50 years.

Back in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.” This began the tradition.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Adventure Of A Lifetime

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I met Rob Leunberger during a recent memorial run he organized for a friend who tragically lost his life on the back of his motorcycle.  You can read that story here.

As I joined the group for the day’s ride, I was on the outside looking in.  I didn’t know most of  those who had gathered to honor their friend, on this scorching hot summer day. 

At the end of the day though, I had witnessed an amazing friendship among men and women, brought together by a motorcycle, with a love for one another that was special.  They would do ANYTHING for each other!

Dodging the Roadkill: Merry Christmas

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Well, we’ve reached another Christmas holiday together and I just wanted to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

It seems like only yesterday when we were all staring at the Christmas tree and counting our blessings last year, but how quickly time flies, and once again we’re grateful to be here, and thankful for family and friends.

I never expected to make so many new friends through this blog and all while traveling on the back of a motorcycle.  I’ve heard some incredible stories, and learned some valuable lessons from all of you and I thank you!
