Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 1

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Since I began this journey, I’ve been committed to traveling as far and wide as I could possibly afford.  We all have a bucket list, and if a visit to Sturgis South Dakota isn’t on it, then you might want to re-examine your list.

I was invited to join three other brothers to this year’s 79th edition of the Sturgis Rally.  Last year when I was asked,  I thought to myself that I had at least a year to REALLY decide if I wanted to go.

Then I paid my hotel fees (which had to be paid in advance) and I realized that I HAD to go now and there was no looking back.  I’m grateful that I didn’t change my mind, and I’m blessed by the people I went with and the sites I saw.

Some want to stay at home for as long as possible. Others worry they may not have saved enough, so retiring elsewhere represents a way to stretch their dollars in areas with lower costs of living, as well as a way to experience other cultures.

Still others may see a retirement move as a new adventure. Whatever the reason, there are many things to consider when deciding whether to unwind in another country or right here in the States.
