The Canada 5000 Rally Against Alzheimer’s is part history project – recounting the famous Shell 4000 Rally races that ran across Canada in the 1960s. It’s part road trip – following various routes of the original Shell 4000 Rally. It’s part car rebuild – restoring then driving a 1967 Volvo 122S for 5000 miles along Canada’s worst roads. It’s part writing project – documenting the whole experience and interviewing the drivers and co-drivers who ran the original rally. It’s part fundraiser – my partner in this project Dave Myers and I have raised more than $11,000 to fight Alzheimer’s Disease. is a blog that I started to brings two of my passions together — travelling and cars. When I travel, I love to find cool car museums, take road trips and meet other car guys. I love writing this blog because it allows me to share my experiences with like-minded people and also write about other interesting characters from across the globe.
