Peace, Joy, & Expectations
Celebrations of Manifestation
…For With-In Light Reveals All
It’s been quite a while since I’ve set down to write a blog instead of just posting an article I’ve read. There were many reasons for taking a break after a fantastic 2013 One Peoples Public Trust thrust, the “Let’s Pull Together Tour” (June/July) on my Warrior, the 5d Media Network OPAL Tour across parts of the US (visited in Texas) and then launching I-OPEEN (October) with Keimpe and Ron, which I shutdown in August 2014 for many reasons. Changes nothing more than changes….
After the “Let’s Pull Together Tour”, I wrote a “Thank You” paragraph with the following inquiry:
The big question is: “Would I do it again?” Yes, but not on a motorcycle. Now I have to prepare the Beast for a Western states tour maybe?
I would have loved to gone out again in 2014, but it wasn’t meant to be. I didn’t know how I would fix up my RV that I have owned since 2010. I was living on $600 a month so there were no extra funds for repairs. Although the Beast did not have many miles on it, it was not ready to be driven across Fort Worth, let alone across the US.

When I dropped out of the system in 2011, I lived over 2 years in the Beast. Almost every amenity quit functioning within that time frame. One air conditioner died, and not long after the other AC bit the dust. I took cold showers for about 6 months and slept in 107 degree temperatures during the summer.
Friends asked, how did I do it? Well as with any situation One finds themselves in, you acclimate to your environment. However there were many positive and life-changing occurrences during that time: I had the largest garden that summer I have ever had; I lost weight and got much healthier. I had many good times during those lean years.
I was privileged and blessed when I started dating Brenda, (my Soul Mate). With meeting her and becoming One I Am together, I ended up having the time to be involved in 2013-2014 activities mentioned above with her encouragement and blessing.
In July 2014, I realized I had left some of my energy on the table with the IRS. I had not filed income taxes since 2010 and in that year alone, over $14,000 was taken from my checks by the PRIVATE CORPORATE criminals. I hate doing taxes, but I gathered all of my records and quickly filed 2010-1013. There was the money I had been looking for to fix the Beast.
I started working in September 2014, with the purchase of two new air conditioner/ heat-pump roof units. It took about a month to remove the old units and install the new ones because of the extremely cold weather we had at that time. I purchased and installed a 60-watt solar panel to maintain my batteries when I first moved the Beast to a storage lot in 2013. I also removed and replaced all of the vents on the roof and also fixed the leak I had on the back end since 2010. I just finished the roof last Friday.
I had a motorcycle rack added back in early March. I spent 3 and a half days taping up the Beast and painted the exterior trim and over the original pinstripes on the bottom section. I still have the top section to finish painting black and hope to finish in the next 2 weeks.
I spent a month in League City, TX with my son at his shop, JCKustomz, LLC during April. I worked 12-14 hours per day for 4 weeks. I took one day off during that time. The work performed included:
- Removed all of the windows, cleaned and sanded, painted exterior black, replaced with new putty and resealed them
- Rewired and replaced the running lights with smaller LED units
- Painted the wheels
- Replaced windshield wiper motor
- Replaced steering stabilizer
- Replaced all shocks
- Rebuilt 4-barrel carburetor (by expert neighbor)
- Installed K&N filters for better air flow
- Removed, cleaned and fixed original window shades
- Wallpapered the interior
- Installed faux (tin-looking) ceiling tiles
- Removed interior front dash trim, cleaned, painted and reinstalled
- Removed stove exhaust hood, cleaned, painted and reinstalled
- Removed the microwave and built a storage cabinet for pots & pans
- Applied carbon-fiber looking vinyl on refrigerator and other areas
- Installed back-up camera, back-up lights and some additional signal lights
- Installed central vacuum system (Redneck ingenuity with a wet/dry vac)
My son, Jonah, completed the following:
- Replaced the dash with new vinyl (woven leather look) on the dash
- Modified the original curtains (a blending of old and new)
- Installed sound-system
- Installed new driving area carpet
And with all of that work completed, I still have much to do before we hit the road on May 30. And that is the reason for this blog today, which is to officially announce to the world a new tour with the theme:
“Manifesting Common-Unity in Your Comm-Unity”
Unlike the “Let’s Pull Together” Tour, I am not requesting any financial support from any One. The only support I Am looking for is:
A quiet country place to park the Beast
Sustenance for the Beast is easy (Plug it in to 110V source)
A donation of $10/day will be given for this kindness
So if you have some property in the country and will allow us to park for a day or two or three, we would greatly appreciate it and would love to meet you and your family. I know many that participated in the “Let’s Pull Together” Tour have asked when I would make another trip. I would love to see any of you again and will pay you for the little bit of electric we will use. The RV is mostly a 12 volt system, so plugged-in 115V electrical usage is usually less than $50/month when parked and plugged it.
Our first stop upon leaving Fort Worth will be in Athens, TX for a few days with a Facebook friend. I do have a goal of being in Maryland by July 1 for a 4th of July celebration with family and friends. Therefore, if you are interested in hosting us for a couple days, please send an email at:
We’ll be heading northeast after leaving east Texas and my first instinct is to head towards Memphis, TN for a a couple days. I Am hoping Jason Hall still leaves out in the country north of the city, because I would love to see him and his family as well as have hooking up with Bill Moore again. What do you say guys? Can you put up with me for a couple day again? Contact me if you can participate.
Timing of this event – Flexibility in every moment of Now
Thrust – “Manifesting Common-Unity in Your Comm-Unity”
I plan on going north to Maine and then head back down to Niagara Falls, NY and across possibly Canada.
Again, if you are interested in hosting us for a couple days, please send an email with name, address, phone number to:
Looking forward to hearing from some of you and pray that every meeting will be ordained by the Great Spirit.
If you are wondering why I call my RV the Beast, well I’ll share that with you now:
In 2006 when I was going through a separation and other life changes, I had a buddy that was going through the same thing with his family. His wife was “very religious” and attended a cult church with a very domineering and controlling pastor (especially with the women). I had just left the church myself and had made the decision based on bad advice from associate pastors, that I would listen to no One else except my own heart for answers.
I met my buddy’s wife one day after we had been friends for months. It was a short five minute meeting and I had mentioned how a husband and wife should honor and uplift One another. Well as soon as I walked away, she looked over at my buddy and said, “Of all your friends that I’ve met, Angel has the blackest heart of All!”
Well my buddy started calling me, “Captain Blackheart”.
When I got the RV in 2010, I started calling it “The Beast!” My reason was (in my best pirate voice):
Aye Mates, where else would Captain Blackheart live, but in the Belly of the Beast!
