2018 v8.RallyTime

Other than the fact that I think London is the best city in the world; Grace and I are here to join a frivolous yet way, way cool annual and international event known as The Gumball 3000.

Google “Gumball 3000” and you’ll see that, for those who claim to be a “motorhead”, GB3000 is way cool. It’s frivolous nature defines it as cool; cool like Evil Knevil jumping the snake river, or Johnny Knoxville getting shot in the goolies by a pitching machine. Dumb cool. Fast cool. Frivolous cool…

Was just outside and saw this: oTkuv%g1Q9mm4sCNKf5pxw






A couple million dollars worth of vroom on those trucks. Gotta dig the police-mobile. You can tell people are passionate about the GB3000.

I decided to talk my way into the rally last year. I had hoped to get a car here but that plan fell through, so we rent a car. It you are aiming to be foolish in a car, a rental is the way to go…

So tomorrow morning Grace and I head off in our rental with a pack of 100 other vehicles. All dolled up and full of vrooom. We will travel into Europe, then in 3 days we all board a plan and fly to Japan (cars and all) to complete the rally there.

Very much looking forward to it.

And life is good, its vroom filled…
