This blog's for ME

Almost 25 years old, asking my parents if I can sleep in their bed with them. I had thought I was going to be the 25th Prime Minister of Canada. Things had changed. 10 years later, I was still a scared little boy. The time had come to slap myself awake. One Saturday morning, November 19th, 2009, I declared to the world I would be riding my 10 year-old motorcycle from Vancouver, BC Canada to Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, and back.

The official departure was August 28th, 2010. A group of well-wishers saw me off at 8:03 am.

I arrived in Rio de Janeiro around 6 pm March 1st, 2011.

My return to Vancouver came on July 5th, 2011 about 2:00 pm.

Drug & alcohol abuse, ADD, social anxiety, health, chronic pain, night terrors.

So many concerns. But I am far more interested in this question: Do I have the capacity to make this trip despite all my shortcomings?

My mission: To inspire myself to face my fears, enlighten myself on how all living things can peacefully co-exist, enjoy every moment, and see the world as plentiful and generous.

Go ahead. Call me crazy. Call me anything you like.

I'm out to save my world.

You heard it from me first - fibromyalgia cured through exercise. And focus, determination, and achievement. I defy anyone to bleed liberal red blood more than me, but I say the human body was designed to move, it must move, and it must work. The challenge in today's society is some of you don't have to do a damn thing physically if you don't want to, and then you wonder why you're riding a motorized cart at the age of 45. If you do not push your body to get that wooly mammoth, or protect your family against that sabre-tooth tiger, it will inevitably metamorph into rock. The reason Tour de France riders lose years of their life from doing one bike ride is they lose so much calcium due to their lack of weight bearing activities. 21 days and over 2,000 miles of riding with hardly stepping foot on solid ground can cause the body to lose it's calcium. This is according to my chiropractor Dr. Brenda Mason, who coincidentally knows her shiite.
