Exactly one week ago, @flysully , @adamkann and I were waking up together (in separate beds😆) after a long fun night in Savannah, GA to make our way to Cape Canaveral, FL to see the SpaceX Falcon Human Crew launch. We didn’t make it there on time to watch from the viewing zone but we managed to make it close enough to park on the side of the highway with everybody else and walk up to the bridge just as the launch happened.
Folks, what an incredible experience. Life-changing, actually. All of us got to witness the dream of a little boy from South Africa come true in front of the whole world. So inspiring! We were left in awe after hearing and feeling the rumble of the rockets.
And Adam got his wish of having a full head of hair again! 😂😜 It didn’t end there. We met a girl who invited us to join her and her friend in Cocoa Beach. We gladly accepted her invitation and I’m so glad we did. We ended up being at the beach that day and the next for hours AND...Her friend and her husband invited us to shower, change and hang at their place that night. And all of us especially Adam got to bond with the cutest dog, Mercury (Named after Freddie). And no matter what our political preferences were, Air Force One flew right over us while we were in the water. I mean, that’s just AWESOME. As a kid, I watched “Air Force One” with Harrison Ford and would rewatch it a lot. So, that plane is like the Delorean (sorta lol). On Sunday, when Jared was playing “Mom,” he said it’s after 4pm, which meant we had to head back to Atlanta already. The thought of leaving this place of calm and serenity hit me hard. Life is truly meant to be enjoyed. We should all find positive ways to keep our spirits lifted even during the tough times which we’ve been going through recently. I am grateful to Jared and Adam for being so willing to take this trip together and I am very much looking forward to the next one. #cocoabeach#adventures#findingpeace#embracelife#florida#friendstrip#innerpeace#beachlife

. I've always just wanted to become an explorer as a kid, I didn't know if that was possible for me though, most of my life I understood that being an explorer means you have to be a white man like some of the firsts who climbed Everest and sailed across oceans. .
My mother constantly monitored how I interacted with the world. I couldn't play with some kids because their parents disapproved of us, we didn't play with toy guns because that's a death sentence. Something my white friends took for granted was having the ability to be ultimately free to do as they wished. My mother finally to always have confidence, but not too much as to scare them. I was confused as a child, all this because I'm darker skinned? These were just the few lessons black boys learn from parents that were lucky enough to know teach it.
It's made doing what I do an infinite struggle. In order to receive the same accolades as my counterparts I must work 3 times harder, it's always the same story of "I don't fit in, or look the part". However I push on.
BLM #BlackLivesMatter is helping black people be heard, understood and accepted into society as equals. Let's create a world where I don't have to teach my children to not appear scary or fear for their lives due to the darker pigmentation of their skin.
Finally, explorers push the frontiers of mankind and venture where no individual has gone before. Exploration is to investigate what's within our universe and extend the hand of humanity to the stars. .
If you'd like to become an ally please make diligent effort to invite diversity into your communities, circle of friends, leadership positions at work and speak out against injustice.
Here are some talented adventure/outdoor black folks to follow and be inspired by.
Jeep groups are amazing, these guys have been doing this for almost 10 years and took us in and treated us like we have been apart of them for years. Cant wait to go back out, after some mods of course!
I’ve got to give it to my dad for filling his days with meaningful experiences. I still get scolded often that sleeping in is a sin in his book because endless adventures wait to be unfolded. Every year I catch on a little bit more and enjoy each one with a finer sense of appreciation. Happy Birthday Dad, Love you and can’t wait to see what unfolds in your life year to come ❤️.

In this week’s episode we discussed a great tip! Stopover flights! Stopover flights are a great option to once again maximize your time and allow you to see more countries in a given trip much like open jaw tickets explained last week. The difference is stopovers are basically long layovers over 24 hours.
Some airlines offer stopover flights for free! You’d want to google the airline you’re interested in flying with stopover policy i.e Deltas Stopover Policy.
An example is when booking my flight to Africa I was going to able to take advantage of a 28 hour stopover in Switzerland before continuing on my journey.
How to book them?
1. Using Skyscanner but unfortunately it’s limited airlines- most airlines do not provide the option to book stopovers online
2. Recommenced is to call the airlines to assist with booking stopover.
Sometimes you can even save money doing this.
