Road Trip A-Z Challenge So Ho Woo at Dinner & Departure


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

We decided to treat Su Ho Woo to some authentic Korean food so we took him to a local restaurant in our area for a buffet where he could get everything from fresh seafood to Kimchi. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimchi

The New Korean Restaurant is located at 2030 Ft. Campbell Blvd in Clarksville, TN and their number is (931) 645-6479  since you can do dine in or carry out.  They are open seven days a week.  Monday – Thursday 11-10, Friday and Saturday 11-11 and Sunday 1-9.

I will let the pictures do the talking for me.

It was good to the last drop.  We came home and sat around a fire in the pit that is on our back patio until time to go to bed, just discussing the different cultures and various topics.

This morning, I made sure that he had a big breakfast to start him out on his journey

Along with juice, eggs and toast he was set to prepare for his journey.

CIMG0103 CIMG0104

Hubby and Su Ho Woo went over his travel route so that he would know what elements and conditions he could expect.  Also what routes to follow that would make his journey easier.

CIMG0106 CIMG0107 CIMG0108 CIMG0109 CIMG0110 CIMG0111 CIMG0112 CIMG0113CIMG0121CIMG0122

Just before his departure he surprised us both with a gift and something to always remember him by.

CIMG0123 CIMG0124 CIMG0125 CIMG0126 CIMG0127

We miss his presence already and wish him a safe journey on his quest.  He is going to try and check in every so often to send me pictures and keep us updated so that I can blog about his progress across the USA to Los Angeles California.

Should you see a lone biker out there with flags, stop and say hello.  That might just make their day.  It might enrich your life more than theirs.
May we show him kindness the entire way of his trip.

God Bless him for his quest and for what it stands for.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 17


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

This afternoon, while my husband was on his way to the local store, he passed a biker on the side of the road.  Many people during the course of the day, I am certain passed this same biker and thought nothing of it.  My hubby quickly ran his errands and then proceeded to find the biker on his way home.

What had caught the attention of my hubby was the small flags that were flying on on back of the bicycle.  He invited him to join us in our home for the evening.

His name is SuHo Woo.  He is riding from Washington D. C. to Los Angeles California on his bicycle to signify the need for peace in South Korea.

He is soon to be 30 yrs. of age.  He is fascinating to sit down and converse with.  Only certain sections of the country have given him a cold shoulder and have not shown a welcome hospitality to him.  Shame on them.  They are the ones who missed out.

CIMG2654

He is a true gentleman in all aspects of the word.  Very polite and respectful.  He had lunch with us of pulled pork, southern baked beans and southern potato salad from a local restaurant.  He was able to taste some real Southern style foods that come directly from our area.  Davie’s Hot House B- B -Q (1754 Woodlawn Rd, Clarksville, TN 37042) if you happen to come to the outskirts of Clarksville and are hungry some time.  They are only open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Plan accordingly.

CIMG2655 CIMG2656 CIMG2657

This is going to be a long journey for this young man.  It is a way for him to clear his head and look bright into the future.  He has overcame back injury through exercise and the biking is something that he truly enjoys.

CIMG2658 CIMG2659 CIMG2660

He also has his camera so while I was snapping shots, I had to capture memories of today for him as well.  Tonight we are taking him to a local Korean Restaurant as a treat.  My hubby is just as excited as Su Ho Woo.  It is one of my hubby’s favorite places to go.  I will be taking pictures throughout the meal and will blog about it upon our return.

He is staying the night with us and will continue on his journey after I have fed him a hearty breakfast to give him plenty of energy for his ride.

Best of luck to Su Ho Woo and his journey as well as the cause that he rides for.

Till after Dinner,

Tammye Honey

Daily Prompt: I have been touched by strangers


Daily Prompt: Stranger

Have you ever had a random encounter or fleeting moment with a stranger that stuck with you?

The delivery of baskets yesterday was just one day of  many that we have had for https://www.facebook.com/Mikefest2013?fref=ts
Not only do we have Businesses who want to be vendors at the festival.  We have businesses who have other commitments and will not be joining us that day.

The donations this year are incredible.  Despite everything going on in the world, kindness still does exist.
I have felt an abundance of kindness and caring from people that I have met, friendships that I have made that would have never have happened otherwise.

Taking the time to sit and hear each of their stories of how they got into business, their health problems that they have been through that have brought them to the place where they want to give back.  It has been priceless.

penny in fountain

 

I am just a mere penny in a fountain.  When you add all the pennies together though you do have a wish that has come true.

basket 1 basket 2 basket 3

Help from just one day

The rest have already been delivered as we ran out of room.

Thank you and a list will be made very soon of all of the Donations that were made besides the participating Vendors.
With only a few more vendor spots to fill and just 12 more days to fill them we are confident that this is going to be a great year.

Wounded Warrior Sgt. Keith Hale and His Family were the recipient for the Mike Fest 2013.  If you would like to be a part, let us know.

Would love to meet you and get to know your story also.

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Hard-rock bands from the Nashville and Clarksville areas will perform at the fifth-annual Mikefest on Saturday, May 4, to raise money for Sgt. Keith Hale and his family.

The outdoor event, at 3825 Old Dover Road North in Woodlawn, just south of Fort Campbell, will feature several hard-rock bands from the Nashville/Clarksville areas.

Bands confirmed to play include: Mindset Defect, Killing Grace and Transcend the Fallen.

Although admission is free, donations are accepted, and all proceeds will go to Sgt. Keith Hale and his family. Hale was wounded in Iraq during June 2010.

Several vendors will be selling food and drinks, and raffles and live music will be provided for crowds to enjoy during the festival.

Each year, hundreds of people attend to show their support for local music and businesses and America’s troops. This is an all-ages festival, and families are welcome. Violence, gang colors and drugs are strictly prohibited.

Mikefest is a free, annual event created by Byron and Melissa Russell in remembrance of Michael Charles Russell, who passed away during their vacation while on a ride at Disney World, due to a non-diagnosed heart condition. Rather than mourning Michael’s passing, they now celebrate his life by remembering him through this fundraiser, which benefits a different charity each year.

“Since the passing of our son, Michael, in 2006 we have received a tremendous amount of support from the Clarksville, Fort Campbell and Woodlawn communities. So in 2008, we decided to stop mourning his loss and celebrate his life with local charities each year,” the Russells said.

Weekly Challenge: Iconic in Clarksville, TN


Weekly Writing Challenge: Iconic

Every city, every culture, and every religion has iconic symbols that embody its essence. For New York, it may be the Empire State BuildingKatz’s Deli, or those ubiquitous I ♥ New York t-shirts. For rock and roll fans, it may be leather jackets, vinyl records, or some oversized headphones to capture every bit of musical glory. Either way, certain items take on the persona and symbolism of particular cultures and places in our lives.

For this week’s challenge, we want you to snap a photo of something that is iconic to you. It can be a local pizza joint in your town that is unlike any other and conjures up memories of home whenever you’re away. It can be a photograph of a religious statue that’s been handed down from generations in your family that symbolizes your beliefs. Or it can even be a picture of your favorite pair of shoes that you wear nearly every day and has come to personify your personal style.

Then, pull some inspiration from our previous “1,000 Words” challenges and write a story using your picture. Of course, you can give us the real story behind your icon, but if you’re itching for a more creative challenge, try these ideas on for size:

  • Make up a legend about the origin of your icon of choice
  • If your photo is of a place or monument, tell a story with your symbol as the setting
  • Revisit your icon as an archeologist 500 years in the future, and try to discern its significance
  • Personify your symbol and tell its story from its own perspective

033

 

 

This may only seem like an average photograph of me allowing a post to hold me up.  What is Iconic about this photo is the history behind the photo.

The last train is right behind me.

This station is no longer running.  The last train has ran it’s course as the Monkey’s pointed out.  This was just one song that the group produced.  It was iconic that it helped to establish Clarksville, Tennessee on the map.  An icon that would always be remembered through the song.

We have so many iconic symbols in this city.  Wilma Rudolph was another great iconic symbol.  Her statue is present in the city to signify her great ability.  Many of us only dream to achieve a small portion of what that woman overcame in her life to be able to achieve.  If you are not familiar with her story, perhaps a brief history lesson is necessary to refresh your memory.  It will be worth the stroll on the link.

If you are looking to relocate to a nice area then check out http://clarksvillechamber.com/relocation/

When you look at the livability of Clarksville, you’ll find metropolitan amenities and conveniences blended with small town hospitality and values. Clarksville is a scenic river city that is steeped in history with residents who enjoy modern day living. Business Week Magazine even ranked Clarksville as Tennessee’s Best Place to Raise Your Kids!

Take a drive downtown and you have access to shops, boutiques and restaurants that show off Clarksville’s local flair.There is no lack of local owned eateries that are sure to please.  From pizza, pasta and fresh brews to steak and seafood, casual or upscale, there is something for every occasion. If a larger chain retail store or restaurant is more what you after, there isn’t much Clarksville doesn’t offer. With more than 100 stores, the conveniently located Governor’s Square Mall is a great place to start.

Real estate is a vital part of the Clarksville economy. New housing construction can be seen all over the city and county and much of that is due to the fast growing population. In 2008, Clarksville was the only community in the Nashville region to post housing appreciation. From expansive dream homes to apartments or condos overlooking the Cumberland River and everything in between, Clarksville-Montgomery County offers a variety of housing options in numerous neighborhoods.

As the ninth fastest growing city in the United States, Clarksville has positioned itself as a community that is an ideal place to work, live and play.  With the great amount of economic growth over the past few years, Clarksville has become home to an array of year-round attractions, including the award winning Rivers and Spires festival, Christmas on the Cumberland, Jammin in the Alley music series and Austin Peay athletics just to name a few.

Underlying this rich way of life is an affordable cost of living – about 15% below the national average, according to the ACCRA Cost of Living Index. Best of all you’ll find friendly and welcoming people who love calling Clarksville home.

We have a lot of options that you might like such as http://clarksvillecvb.com/about/

Metropolitan mixed with a healthy dose of small town charm.  Think Carrie Bradshaw meets Dolly Parton.  Okay, that may be a stretch – but we do serve a mean martini and some mouthwatering barbeque.

If someone asks whether you’ve ever visited Clarksville, Tennessee and your immediate response is “Where’s that?” then you’re missing out.  What your friend may already know, and you will soon find out, is that Clarksville is where you need to be.  An escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, Clarksville has the unique ability to blend big city amenities (we are the ninth fastest growing city in the nation) with small town charm.  And we do it all Southern style.

A chameleon of sorts, Clarksville offers something different to all who have a desire to travel outside the norm.  Our artistic repertoire ranges from world class theatres and art exhibits to honky-tonks and homegrown country music.  Love to shop?  Explore our multitude of antique stores, local one-of-a-kind boutiques, or calm your craving with the well knowndepartment stores you love. Our moderate climate makes us every nature lover’s dream location.  With several state parks in the area and miles of walking and biking trails your taste for the outdoors will be satisfied.  Not to mention that both the Cumberland and Red Rivers can provide endless hours of aquatic excitement. All of this doesn’t even touch on the many year round attractions that make Clarksville distinctive. From the Customs House Museum to Beachaven Winery and Vineyards we can provide a list of “must sees” for your visit. A quick peak at our calendar and you can see we’ve got a whole lotta shakin’ going on.

There are so many other things we could brag about.  Like our rich river heritage or our diverse community, represented by over 26 countries.  But those things are better left to experience on your own terms.  You cannot describe that je ne sais quoi appeal that makes Clarksville so desirable.  Words do not do justice to all that the area has to offer.  Instead pack your bag, throw the family in the car, and come by for a weekend.  You won’t be disappointed.

According to http://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g54955-Clarksville_Tennessee-Vacations.html

Clarksville, Tennessee, in Montgomery County, is a bustling city built by the tobacco trade. The Customs House Museum & Cultural Center, in the city’s historic district, was originally constructed as a US Post Office during the tobacco boom. Now it has been converted into art gallery, history center, and hands-on children’s museum. Just outside of town is the Dunbar Cave State Park, where visitors can hike through caverns that were once mined for gun powder and used for big band concerts.

So what are you waiting for?  Check us out…

It would take close to a week just to see all of the sites in and around Clarksville, TN and Ft. Campbell, KY.  Then Nashville which is only about one hour away would also take close to a week if not longer to check out all of the sites, never mind the hot spots and the great street musicians who play nightly.

There is lots of fine dining from burgers and fries to four star restaurants… within walking distance after you park in Nashville, TN so bring your walking shoes and enjoy.

If you have a military ID then you have no problem getting onto base at Ft. Campbell, KY, which is a city of it’s own.
