“Great Scott!” - Me.
We were out for a routine work luncheon. You know, the one’s full of awkward silences and half-jokes reaching for any topic of discussion like, “Man, look at that over there!” just to point at something random and hope anyone has a story about what you are pointing at. I’m good at awkward adulting.
We made our way back to work in our rental car and were looking for a spot to park. I heard a faint “Is that the car from Back to the Future” come from the back seat and my BTTF senses started tingling. Like, why the heck would the DeLorean be parked in a random spot in the mid-west…but, boom…there it was. Just parked in a random spot close to the entrance. I, being a huge BTTF fan, jumped out of our slow-moving SUV to immediately start inspecting the craftsmanship...and to snap a few selfies.
As it turns out, I had seen this exact DeLorean Time Machine a few years back at the Philadelphia Comic-Con. The team over at ToTheFuture.org have taken the DeLorean (that they built!) across all 50 states (including Hawaii) to raise awareness for Parkinsons. I never thought I would see it in the wild just driving around, but today was my lucky day. If you get a chance, check out the site, check them out at an event or donate whatever you have. I had the chance to chat with them today and they are good people with a great cause. It amazes me that they know more about BTTF than I do!
