So.... it's been a few days since I last posted an update.  I do apologise about that to my millions and millions of fans!  LOL!  Okay, maybe the 5 - 10 people following this?  Mum, Sister, brother etc.  :-)

It has been a blast, an adventure with som...

I climed, oh my how I climed.  High up, to heavens at 6,000 feet elevation.  I faced the monster that was the heat and I finally came to the top of the mountain and I looked down.  It was a sight to behold!  Before mine eye lays a paradise for gear heads all over the w...

So..... 17 hours, 800 miles, two tanks of gas, one burrito, two jugs of water, one bottle of powerade and a bag of trail mix and I am now in Salt Lake City, UT!  WHOOO!!!!

What a day, three states in one day - CA, NV and UT!  Just WOW!  It has been a long and tiring day...

10, 9, 8, 7, 6....... HOLD ON!  Not quite just yet!  I had a great time today hanging out with a bunch of BMW buddies who were able to come out to send me off.  They all showed up in uBer cool and pretty darn unique BMW's.

Let's see, a White M5, a Silver M3 E3...

As I embark on this trip, it occurs to me that I am driving through a country that has been hit with a number of tragedies recently that have involved the loss of lives.  How can anyone have missed it? 

ALL lives lost are a tragedy, no matter who it is - regardless...

Those words could have come from John Snow himself somewhere in this land.  He could be in Tahoe, Detroit or NYC telling someone about a certain roving Red M5 that should be crossing this great land pretty soon.  It's been amazing for me to see the transformation of th...

We have been working with a GPS tracking app from FollowMee.  The app will offer followers of this trip to see the car's position in real time.  I am not a coder, so they are working with me to see if we can embed a live map.  That may not happen.  However, there is a...

I had the most fabulous day!  I was granted what I can only describe as a VIP, Full On Back Stage Pass to one of the coolest toy stores ever!  Okay.... so maybe I should not call it a toy store.  However, there is just so much cool factor in the place.  The place is of...

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 organ...

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.

MATTER

ALL

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.  

BLACK LIVES MATTER!
