When this crazy idea first came up, I thought it would be fun to have some way for others to see what kind progress was being made.  Also, it would be a fun thing for people to see if I was passing through their town.  Working with a shoe string budget, it was challenging to find a suitable GPS trackers or some viable way to track the journey.

Then FollowMee stepped in.  I contacted Chris and they were willing to help us out with this.  Officially, FollowMee is a GPS location tracker.  It trackes things like iOS devices and the like.  All you need to do is go to their website and open an account.  On your iOS (that means your iPhone folks), you can also download the FollowMee app. 

They offer cool features like parents car track their errant kids daily movements, employers can track field employees - no more goofing off on th Boss's dime.  Also, if some idiot thief decides that your phone is what they want..... or you were dancing really wild at that concert and the phone fell out, you can locate your phone by logging into your account.

I for one have appreciated working with FollowMee.  I am no whizz kid techie and they have been very responsive to my queries and issues in learning new technology.  I look forward to seeing how this all works on the road.

Wanna know where Phoenix is?  Just FollowMee!

We ALL matter, ALL of us.  Whatever your race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, and socioeconomic status.  We ALL matter; let's stop the violence!

There are a lot of sad, tragic things happening these days.  Rather than tearing ourselves apart, we should come together, band together and solve the issues together.  Let's not allow a few bad apples to spoil the whole bunch that is US.  It still rings true that we will either stand united or fall divided.




I posted the above back in 2016 when I journeyed across the US.  It is now the summer of 2020.  Back then, there was racial tension, there were a number of tragic things happening.  I truly believed in the message that ALL lives mattered and still matter today. 


But, here we are - again - about four years later and it seems like the clock went backwards.  This time however, it seems more focused on Black people.  It is hard for me to just say ALL Lives Matter as I did then as it seems there has been a recurring tragic impact on the Black / African American community - particularly here in the United States.  


That said though, I do have to voice out that BLACK LIVES MATTER!  This term is not to say other lives don't matter, or matter less.  At this moment in time, Black lives are at risk, very high risk and so we MUST pay focused attention to this.  For us all to matter, we must ALL matter equally and that equality has not yet been achieved.
