No really. I want to do a little something different. I want you to tell me where to go. No not like that!  I want you to think about some places for me to visit and post about here on Rides Roads and Ronman.  This doesn’t mean I’ve run out of ideas or places to go. That’s not the case at all.

Here’s what I had in mind. I was thinking what if you, the readers have places you’ve always wanted to visit but haven’t made it to yet.  Now with that being said we’re gonna have to use some sense here.  The places you suggest need to be somewhat near me.  As much as I’d love to go to far away places and report back on them. I just don’t have the time to do all that.

If you don’t already know I live in Middle Tennessee.  I want to know places say within a day’s ride of Nashville.  I want to know day trips to fun or historic places.  I’m even open to some places that I could take an extended weekend trip to.

Okay now you have your assignment.  I can’t wait to see what you have to say.  Feel free to send your suggestions to my email at or leave them in the comments section to this post.  If you do make a suggestion in the comments area please leave me your email address.  The reason for that is so I can contact you with any questions I may have concerning your suggestions.

This should be fun. I’m really looking forward to seeing where you tell me to go.


Ride Safe



Here we are starting the final month of 2011. Where did the time go? In some ways this has been a very long year. In other ways it has flown by. What a whirlwind it’s been for me.  I started the year without a scooter. Oh the horror. Luckily I was able to correct that situation.  Once you’ve been infected with the scooter bug it’s terminal. You just can’t get along without one. Wouldn’t you agree?

I’ve enjoyed  some wonderful rides this year.  I’ve come full circle and am riding more solo journeys these days. The good side of that is that I take time for more photographs. That means I should have more fodder to post here on the blog. I hope y’all find this to be a good thing as well.  Think about it like this, the more photographs I post the fewer words I post.  Okay so that’s not really true. The more photographs I post the more photographs I have to write words about.

I know there have been some not so fun  posts this year. There have been some not so fun times in my life this year.  Fortunately I’ve pretty well worked through all that. I’m focusing on the good side of things. Like how I have been fortunate enough to become really close friends with a very few amazing people.  Some of whom I’ve been friends with for years.  Others are a new blessing in my life. Those of you who take the time to read my blog are a blessing to me. What an honor it is that you do that.

Let me just say a resounding THANK YOU!!!!!! All of you have made 2011 a special year.  I can only imagine how much more wonderful 2012 is going to be. Well that is unless the Mayans are right and the world is coming to an end.  I think that they just filled up whatever it was that their calendar was on. Surely there is another calendar out there somewhere.
