Happy Memorial Day! I hope you’re having a safe and happy Memorial Day! I’m also saying thanks to the men and women of the Armed Forces and 1st responders on this National Holiday! With the current state of affairs going on right now, I had to improvise with what I got available. This hasn’t been the normal spring many of us experience. In addition, this isn’t going to a normal summer either! People had their everyday lives disrupted by a force beyond their control. Even if you didn’t lose a job, a loved one, and/or a friend, it’s clear no one is ever immune from the impact that was dealt to everyone directly or indirectly felt the effect of this health crisis. However, my neck of the woods is slowly moving closer to phase 1 of reopening by June 1. Now, I’m working on making moves on this website and more once phase 1 of reopening the region is in full effect. I’m getting all my tools together so I won’t have to race to gather everything to get my 1st post Stay At Home Orders gigs. I just finished creating another box for sale on Bentbox (18 years and older)! This box (18 years and older) I created today features one of the feature models from last year’s photo shoot. One thing I did during the Stay At Home orders was enacted was I put more effort into getting one of my other revenue streams up and running to get another form of income to make up for any lost work from this health crisis. Now, I got to upload other images from past photo shoots uploaded to show and share with others. Before I go, I need to share this video I made last year during Memorial Day Weekend!

Greetings, Everyone! This isn’t a normal Memorial Day Weekend. Sure, the Coca-Cola 600 is still happening. It’s not the usual Memorial Day. The pandemic has changed everything on this website and everything else in between. There won’t be any car shows and motorcycle events this weekend in my neck of the woods. I lost count of the number of events that I had to remove from the event calendar due to health and safety issues from this global health crisis. Some events have been pushed back to later this year since the ban on public gatherings are still in effect. The beaches are open, but they have safety rules as well! The one thing that is for certain is that the latest edition to the eye candy gallery is open. Tomorrow, the latest gallery will be added to the Flashback Fridays Gallery. I also added some new products to not just one, but 2 of our revenue sources! Finally, we got a video from an event this website covered last year. Hopefully, we make to the other side better than our old selves!

Good Afternoon! It’s been 2 months since I did a photoshoot. For most folks, that sounds like years. Even though I added new content on the Flashback Fridays section, I’m in the process of adding new content on the eye candy section because I haven’t uploaded and edited the photos. Here’s the lowdown on this worldwide health crisis. I live in the DC Capital Region, and they’re in no rush to reopen now due to the upward trend in cases. So, the earliest I can expect the region to start the reopening would be the end of May. That means I have to ensure any event calendar updates match the news updates! All I know is that Maryland International Raceway won’t be open until the end of May. Now, think about this! 3 months on events wiped out! On the other hand, Nascar will return to action this weekend. Indycar returns to action next week minus fans. This is a slow recovery period. I was hoping the curve would flatten for the whole region, not bits and pieces! However, I’m working on new designs and updates to the website and the store! I’ll have new galleries posted before the night is over.

Good Evening! April is gone, and we’re now in May now! It’s clear that my 1st trip to MIR this year will be at the end of the month. With the stay at home orders still active, Memorial Day Weekend could be the earliest they’ll see events resume. This or any activity in the region is up in the air until regional leaders collectively find a timeframe to get DC/MD/VA to ease up on restrictions once all 3 jurisdictions get the curve to flatten and then some. Okay, it’s clear quarantine fatigue is getting real. Here’s the deal! The normal we were used to won’t be returning anytime soon. Even if the curve flattens before Memorial Day and all 3 stages of reopening is complete, it won’t be the same. Sure, some events will happen or get a new date. However, we better prepare for the new reality that’s coming on the other side of this! Sure this isn’t the usual blog post I make. However, the extra time I have now will make me make the moves that I should have done weeks ago. One way to keep followers active is to use your available time to learn new skills at Skillshare! Oh, by the way, I made some updates on this revenue stream based on the activities that occurred last month. I’m also launching a series of new sales on this revenue stream this Sunday to kick start cash flow and revenue. The goal is to have enough funds available when the car show and cruise season get back up and running. Finally, Flashback Friday has been relaunched! The newest post can be found here!

Happy Thursday! All this free time should be the time to create new content in the absence of any actual events taking place this spring. I also add a special deal with my eBay Store. They’re giving free listings until the end of April. I got a few boxes that I didn’t touch. Now, I can take advantage of this promotion. With the increase of listings, that will likely increase the revenue needed to sustain the website during the global health crisis that’s disrupting everyone’s life. If you want to support those who had their lives and career affected by this outbreak, the discount ticket hub Goldstar has created a donation page for those businesses who’ve been hit hard by this crisis. Show your support to the people and business that makes this community thrive!

It’s been 2 weeks since the Covid-18 outbreak became a worldwide epidemic. I’ve been most of the time not at work home. It’s clear that the car show season is getting pushed back more to the final weeks of Spring. That means the event calendar needs to be updated daily. Even the warmer isn’t a guarantee without additional tools and steps needed to combat this illness. I’ve also been finding ways to generate sources of income due to the fact that the type of work I get booked for on Taskrabbit has been affected by the global health crisis. Last Week, I made some purchases on Craigslist to resell on either eBay, Amazon or Mercari. I went out of the house to pick up items that weren’t shipped to my house in accordance with my health and safety. However, my daily driver is in the shop because of an accident this past Monday. Therefore, I’m putting more focus on my dropshipping site and other selling platforms. I do have to report that I made a sale last night, and I’ll have other items sold on eBay by Sunday Night. Here’s some videos I made earlier this year that you can’t miss!

I’m not going to waste your time with this latest edition of the Daily Drive. I spent the past few days selling items on one of my revenue sources this week. I was able to have 3 successful sales this week despite the health scare that’s disrupted many people’s lives and livelihood. To say the disease and our response to it have put many lives in difficult positions is the understatement of the year. Now, it’s clear I need to make some proactive moves now. I’ve been spending more creating a reselling business with the various selling apps on my phone. I also decided to get out of the house because loneliness sucks! I also have to update the events page for the website since several events have been canceled or moved to a later date. It also means that photoshoots scheduled this month and next month will be affected heavily! However, this open time frame has also given me the opportunity to add more content in the eye candy section. I’m also working on a new revenue stream to help out until the situation changes for the better!

Happy Friday! I just finish posting 2 feature model galleries this Friday! The 1st gallery features Maine model Maya. The 2nd gallery features New York by Taiwan based model Julie. I got those galleries set! I’m now putting the finishing touches on a photoshoot tomorrow. It had to be moved up due to the client’s schedule! Speaking of schedule, I had to remove 2 events from the event calendar that were supposed to happen next month. Despite the fact both events have been scrapped, I did find other events to replace them. With the new events added, I’m focusing now on increasing traction on one of many revenue streams to fund this website as the weather gets warmer, and more shows start getting added! Another way to keep this up and running is to join our Patreon Page! For $1, your name on a video sounds cool!

Welcome to the 1st Daily Drive for the month of February. Highlights of the 2020 Washington Auto Show are available! It’s the video compilation highlights that I’m posting below. If you’re viewing this on Tumblr, it’ll be on the top. I’m working to get the website upgraded so more images can be added from mobile devices. I plan to have them posted on the website before the end of the month. I already posted another feature model photo gallery live online last week. I also have another feature model gallery made available today. This morning, I made some updates to my Patreon page. I added new content to the page to show folks how active this is! I also made a major change to one of my pledges. If you pledge $1, you can get your name on one of my next videos. This weekend, I plan to cover the Motor Trend Auto Show in Downtown Baltimore and the Baltimore International Motorcycle Show at the Maryland State Fairgrounds. My goal is to get 250 $1 pledges by noon on 02/05/2020. If you want to continue to support this website, you can also visit the eBay store that has also help fund the website! I’m working on getting $100 in sales/day to cover any expenses that the other funding sources weren’t able to cover!

Good Afternoon! Hopefully, most of you are getting the new year off on a good note. I can’t wait for this weekend to come. The Progressive International Motorcycle Show is coming to town. I plan to attend this weekend. I’m glad this year’s event won’t conflict with another motorcycle event. I’ll see plenty of new motorcycles, motorcycle parts, and accessories on display and sale. Any coverage from this event will be posted on this website. I also plan to add more funds to ensure that I can attend this event and other events this month. You’ll be amazed by what we’ll see this weekend.
