What is this all about?
Who is Camride?
Camride has been my (Mike Hayman) personal nickname since 1998. My first car was a 1987 V6 Camaro and it was dubbed the "Cam Ride" by a friend of mine (thanks Don!). That was the same time I was starting to get on the internet and on car messageboards and I needed a screen name. Camride seemed like a great/unique name so I went with it. I've been using it for almost 20 years! I love cars and motorcycles and am brand agnostic. I don't care if it comes from Germany, America or Sweden, I pretty much love all cars (except the Aztec, no one likes the Aztec)!
What is Camride
In 2015 I decided I wanted Camride to mean something more than just my personal nickname. I want it to stand for not only premium, high quality automotive content but also helping others and supporting those in needI've been through some extremely difficult things in my life but cars were always something I could use to escape from my situation and bring some joy back. Now I'm in a fortunate position to be able to help others (rather than being the one that needs help, I'll go more into this in a future article) and I want to use this as a platform to not only bring high quality automotive content to you all but to use this as a means to help others that are going through hard times. I will be devoting a lot of time to covering charity events as well as organizing events and raising money so that we can make a real difference to those in need.
What about me?
Well if you're reading this first of all thank you, I appreciate the support! I'm hoping that with your help we'll be able to not only share some awesome automotive experiences but also be able to help change lives for the better. My goal is not only to raise awareness for issues that are very close to me (like Chronic Pain) but to find ways to help those suffering in any way we can. Whether that's driving someone to a doctors appointment that doesn't have reliable transportation or financially helping someone that is struggling because of an illness/disease/condition/whatever. It doesn't take much to make a huge difference to someone that's struggling, it's often the simple things that make the biggest impact.
