Dodging the Roadkill: Boars Nest Bed and Breakfast/Blue Boar Restaurant review

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCobden, IL – I spent the weekend in southern Illinois.  I had never been to this part of the country but wanted to attend the annual Blessing of the Bikes at the Bald Knob Cross of Peace.  

I was fortunate to stay at the Boars Nest Bed and Breakfast, and enjoy the Blue Boar restaurant.  Dave Fombelle and his son Bob were tremendous hosts and their facilities were excellent.

The bed and breakfast is located on 100 acres of Illinois countryside, nestled in the woods, where the definition of “peace and quiet” lives.  There are five units including the “honeymoon” suite and they are exceptional.

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: Saltgrass Steakhouse

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I traveled to Colorado recently and after a couple of hard days of riding, I was yearning for a good steak.  The Saltgrass Steak House was just down the road from where I was staying, so I had to give it a try. 

They refer to themselves as “the original Texas Steakhouse” and after slicing into my rib-eye, I could understand. 

Their story dates back to the 1800’s, according to their website, when millions of Longhorns roamed freely throughout Texas.  With the taste for beef becoming a newfound favorite in the North, Texas ranchers prospered as never before.

Food Paradise at World Food Championships

 

World Food ChampionshipOrange Beach, AL – When I arrived at the World Food Championships, I had no idea what this was all about. I had to “bone up” on the sport of competitive cooking so I could cover it properly.

I’ve covered everything from baseball to golf, football to basketball, but I’ve never been up close and personal with this type of event, and let me just say..

It. Is. Awesome!

187th Infantry Regiment - Iron RakkasansFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionGhazni Province, Afghanistan – Just 45 days after officially claiming occupancy at Forward Operating Base Andar, Task Force Iron Rakkasans transformed their location from a sand pit with four walls, to a well-established home with all of the basic accommodations.

The Soldiers of the forward support company were instrumental in the construction and the improvements in the quality of life.

Although the engineer unit supporting 3rd Brigade were the primary builders for the key structures for the Iron Rakkasans to operate at FOB Andar, the handy work of FSC Soldiers did a great deal to improve the living conditions.

Dining facilities at Forward Operating Base Andar provide an indoor eating area for the Soldiers to enjoy their meals. Over time, a mobile mess tent was established for Soldiers to receive prepared meals, and Soldiers ate wherever they could find a spot to sit until tents were established to provide an enclosed area to eat.
