So.... three days to go to departure and there are still more stickers / decals to add to the car. Have I gone sticker-loco??? Maybe I have, but the car looks no different than race cars we see on the track. Also, the stickers and decals are all from people or organizations that helped make this happen. Although, it has to be said they did not ask me to get this nuts with stickers.... HAH! Anyway.... it's a way for me to really thank them for all the support.

Today, I of course added another decal. This is special as this particular group of people are responsible for me being able to do a lot of what I do today. Maybe I should call them enablers? LOL!

Today, I was proud to add the BIMMERFORUMS decal to the car. This is forum board, or what I prefer to call a community of like minded BMW owners from all over the world. We share ideas, knowledge, skills, advice, encouragement and even go out to help each other out with DIY projects.

If you want to interact with a bunch of people with one of the most incredible pool of knowledge out there, quite simply join the forum. I am hoping that as I drive across the country, I will get to meet a bunch of members in person. Look out, AquilaBMW may be coming to your town!


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.
