Well, let's start by say that the nights weren't exactly arctic cold.  In fact, other than in some spots, they night were quite temperate.  So.... I did it, or should I say we did it!  We - as in my friend and co pilot and I traveled 2000 miles in the 1998 BMW ///M3 TO...

Due to an unfortunate incident, RRM5 - the M5 that took me 7,000 miles through 26 states of the Union is no longer on the road (Story to come).  It is very heartbreaking to see this happen to this car.  It endured so much, took me to some wonderful places and helped cr...

It is said there is a point where the rubber meets the road.  Well, what happens when the rubber has no more road to meet?  Well, let me tell you my friends, there is a place there the road or at least the tarmac ends.  That place is right by the dry bed of Panamint Sp...

So...... here we are, homeward bound California.  However, before I cross the Californian border, there is an Emerald City of lights and sound that must be visited.  We have all heard of or know of Las Vegas, that glimmering oasis in the dessert.  The ultimate adult pl...

After leaving the Grand Canyon, which turned out to be a bit longer drive than I expected, I headed further west towards Las Vegas.  Before Las Vegas though, there was a Landmark to be visited, this was of course Hoover Dam.

Not much I can personally say about Hoover Da...

I was quite excited about visiting Louisiana, and yet, there was also somewhat of a heavy heart.  I have always had a fondness for Louisiana and particularly New Orleans.  This of course was the only place I had ever visited in Louisiana, but I was always assured that...

Hello There!  So.... it's been a few days since I last Blogged.  Dear Lord, where have I been?  What have I been up to?  Why have I kept you - my earnest readers waiting?  For some very good reasons my friends, for some very good reasons... reasons which I hope will br...

In 1767, a couple of chaps named Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon drew a line in the sand, or whatever they were standing on at the time and that line has apparently defined whatever is considered the "South" of America till this day.  You will hear people refer to the...

New York, New York, Big City of Dreams... you are supposed to be able to do anything here.  This is the land of dreams, where you can dream big and make things happen.  However, there is something that you cannot do.... you cannot avoid the tolls!  Tolls! Tolls! Tolls!...

I arrived in the fair town... or is it city of College Park, MD at night.  It was hot, and I mean hot.  Up to this point on this trip, I have been asking myself why did I ever choose the height of summer to head out.  That questions seriously came up as I got to Colleg...

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.
