Hohenwald is about 40 miles from my front porch. My wife and I make frequent 'weekend' excursions there. There's an elephant sanctuary in Hohenwald somewhere, but the location is kept under wraps by the locals who don't particularly WANT tourism. They like the town the way it is at present. We live .5 mi off the Natchez Trace Parkway and 90% of the ride is via the NTP.

Thank you. Those are great shots. I suggested to my 'shift' union rep' about making a UAW commuter bike w/all US manufactured components, assembly and design. W/t UAW logo on the head tube. He loved the idea. He's going to bring it up at the next Union meeting. Maybe do a tie-in w/ Harley-Davidson, GM, Chrysler...somebody. Not a cheap 'denali like' rb, but a solid, utilitarian igh bike similar to the old Raleighs, but hipper. It's green, and would put people to work in a much needed 'niche' industry. Federal funding may be available.

In a plant of over 4500 people I'm the lone cycle commuter on the premises...most think I'm crazy, but held in high regard. Especially when there was rainstorm the other night and I rode 20 miles in a downpour.
